27. May 2022 @ 10:00 - 12:00
Zoom,

Understanding the Alienated Self: The Interest in and Problematization of the Village in the Post May-Fourth Period 认识被化外的自我:后五四时期对乡村的关注和农村的问题化 Luo Zhitian 罗志田 (Distinguished Professor), History Department, Sichuan University May 27, 2022, 10:00 AM Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna On Zoom: For registration, please use this zoom link. The lecture will be held in Chinese.  乡村曾被视为中国社会与文化的基础,在近代改称“农村”后,逐渐被认为出了问题。农村怎样成为“问题”及其所成的“问题”本身,既伴随着中国现代性展开的进程,也因其间的“现代”眼光所生成。这背后的一个要因,是城市的兴起和城乡的对立。由于城市被视为国家的主体,原来作为广土众民代表的乡村逐渐沦为化外,不复能表述自己。在五四后出现一种读书人想要了解自己国家的倾向,先是开始关注已近于未知的农村,观感褒贬参半;接着是被关注者逐渐问题化,见解贬多于褒;最后是问题化的农村升级为“破产”或“崩溃”,表述以贬为主。其间一个重要特点,是一些人因缺乏了解而把常态看成变态,甚至把国家整体的危难移植到农村身上。   This lecture is part of the lecture series New Perspectives on Modernity in China. . Organizers: Prof. Dr. Axel Schneider, University of Göttingen Prof. Dr.…

Lecture: The Creativeness of Modern Chinese Conservative Thinkers 王汎森: 近代保守思想家的創造性

10. Jun 2022 @ 10:00 - 12:00
Zoom,

The Creativeness of Modern Chinese Conservative Thinkers 王汎森: 近代保守思想家的創造性 Wang Fan-sen 王汎森 (Academician, Distinguished Research Fellow), Institute for History and Philology, Academia Sinica   June 10, 2022, 10:00 AM Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna On Zoom: For registration, please use this zoom link. The lecture will be held in Chinese. 近代中國保守思想家中至少可以區分成兩類,第一類是本能地反對任何改變現狀的思想,第二類是回到一個重要的思想基盤(如宋明理學、大乘佛學)上戰鬥。在這次演講中,我想討論第二類思想家,以宋育仁(1859-1931)、熊十力(1885-1968)、唐文治(1865-1954)、劉咸炘(1896-1932)、錢穆(1895-1990)等人為例,討論一個思想史上的問題:當晚清以來的新派一直在變的時候,反對或批評他們的人,其實也一直在變換他們的言論,同時也變換他們對傳統的解釋,以便對應挑戰。 此外,我在比較仔細地審視他們的思路之後,認為他們不只是「回到本來」的樣子,而是有一個微妙的新創過程。譬如他們有時候會用「提高一格法」,把儒家思想,尤其是宋明理學,作一種新的調整、詮釋。借用卡夫卡的話:「當你凝視深淵時,深淵也在凝視你」。   This lecture is part of the lecture series New Perspectives on Modernity in China. .
