142nd Lecture — The Establishment of the Rites vs. Following Nature: On the difference between Xunzi and Zhuangzi in Motivation of Action [第一百四十二講] 荀子的”偽”與莊子的”真” (Sunday 14 Jul 2019)

摘要:

荀子及莊子皆視「天」為自然之天,並以此概念作為社會制度發展的根據。然而,他們對社會制度的看法卻截然不同:荀子視社會制度為達致人類幸福的重要關鍵,而莊子則視社會制度為人類的枷鎖。是次講座將分析兩者對社會制度的看法,並嘗試以西方哲學的desire-belief theory解釋兩者的分歧。
