  • 由“继善成性”到“成性存存”:试论儒家哲学“善”概念 的两层含义 = From the “experiential stage” to the “transcendent stage” of moral existence : a commentary on the multiple connotations of the “Shan” concept in confucian tradition 

    侯展捷 How, Zhan Jie (2013)
    “善”是儒家道德哲学中一个核心的概念,同时亦构成了孟子心性论的主轴。台湾大学的傅佩荣教授曾对“善”概念作出如下的定义:“人与人之间适当关系的实现”。傅氏定义的长处在于最大程度的涵括了儒家的“仁”、“义”、“礼”、“智”、“孝”、“悌”等诸德目,而且在儒家原典中亦不乏相应的论述。但是,此定义仅将儒家对主体的道德期许局限在一经验性的层次上,从而忽略了儒家“善”概念可能具有的超验性含义,恐有失妥当。譬如《大学》的“止于至善”与《孟子》“圣而不 ...

  • 从频率效应看上古汉语*-s后缀 = A study of *-s suffix in archaic Chinese based on frequency effect 

    黄颖瑜 Ng, Yin Yee (2013)
    上古汉语音变构词包括四声别义和清浊别义等等。其中,四声别义还存在着许多重要的规律问题未被揭示。四声别义的来源为上古的*-s后缀,已获得大部分学者的认同。根据周法高(1962)所罗列出四声别义众多功能,其最主要的四项功能为动名化功能、名动化功能、使动化功能和反使动化功能。然而,同一个*-s后缀能否统摄反方向的功能?前人虽然想尝试回答同个*-s后缀能否同时操作相反的动名化功能和名动化功能的问题,但都无法提出有效的独立证据。据此,本文通过了类 ...
  • 重构公民性 :马国社运份子黄进发的案例研究 = Reconfiguring citizenship : a case study of Malaysian social activist Wong Chin-Huat 

    施伟良 See, Clement Wei-Liang (2013)
    马来西亚华人群体的公民性认同向来呈现族群性与公民性的模糊状态,实际上二者界限分明,近来更有从族群跨越至公民的公民性重构趋势。华人公民性重构意味着以往具族群色彩的公民性被赋予了全新的意义,其趋势对于马来西亚的政治发展来说也颇具影响力。除了建立此论点之外,本文将以马来西亚华人社运份子黄进发作为案例研究。已跨越族群性,呈现重构后之公民性的黄进发,也是华社在公民社会中的先驱。黄进发的成长经历让他体会到了族群性政治的缺陷,也深深体会到了公民意识醒 ...
