Why Nouns Slow Us Down, and Why Linguistics Might Be in a Bubble

Writers and language geeks inherit a ranking system of sorts: verbs good, adjectives bad, nouns sadly unavoidable. Verbs are action, verve! “I ate the day / Deliberately, that its tang / Might quicken me into verb, pure verb,” Seamus Heaney writes, in “Oysters.” A sentence can be a sentence without …

陈嘉映:教育和洗脑

世事洞明皆学问。人情练达即文章。——《红楼梦》<p><b>陈嘉映:教育和洗脑</b><p><b>洗脑及其与教育的区别</b><p>教育是教育,洗脑是洗脑,把教育混同于洗脑肯定是不对的。不过,两者到底区别何在,也不是那么容易想清楚。厘清两者之间的区别,近世以来变得越来越重要。在传统社会,该教给学生什么东西,分歧较少,因此,灌输不灌输就不是那么突出的问题。现在,多元价值、多元文化的理念被广泛接受,个人的自由选择得到推崇。这是一个方面。另一方面,虽然过去的统治者宣扬的那一套意识形态也有洗脑的成分,但只到了最近百十年,世界上的洗脑机器被开发的越来越强大。所以说,教育和洗脑之间的张力,今天格外凸显。<p>让我们从洗脑说起。“洗脑”这个说法大家都熟悉,每个 …

在苹果今晚的发布会开始之前,Google 先亮了一下剑

还有不到 12 个小时,苹果今年的第一场发布会就要开始了。这场发布会在选址上有些特别,既不是在新建成的乔布斯剧院,也不是在果粉熟知的芳草地艺术中心,而是选在了一所普通学校——莱恩科技大学预科高中。在邀请函上,苹果打出了「Let’s take a field trip」的口号(中文版邀请函:同学们,来次课外活动吧)。很明显这次苹果的发布会是以教育为主题的,再结之前合各方的分析,苹果要发布一款教育版平板电脑这件事应该是没跑的了。苹果这次的新品将会再一次搅动教育市场是毫无疑问的,新一轮 K-12 战争也准备打响了。而在苹果还有三十秒到达战场之际,Google 选择先亮出了自己的新武器。Acer …
