漢娜鄂蘭遇上海德格:我愛你,所以學著說你的語言

讀《愛這個世界:漢娜鄂蘭傳》,鄂蘭與海德格的相遇,因為愛你所以學著說你的語言,在彼此人生留下漣漪。鄂蘭遇上海德格時剛滿十八歲,對他的反應就有如〈陰影〉所說,是「對單獨一人不變的痴戀」。海德格比她年長十七歲,在天主教教養下成長,已婚,而且是兩個孩子的父親。雖然他贏得了這個傑出猶太女生熱切的愛慕,但他人 …

《六祖壇經4.0》:智慧和聰明是兩回事,但什麼是智慧?

文:王溢嘉<p>摩訶般若:相信你本有的大智慧<p>智慧與聰明有別<p>如果可能,大家都希望能成為一個有智慧的人。但到底什麼叫做「智慧」呢?卻很難有一個明確的定義,不過很多人也都曉得智慧跟聰明不同。<p>聰明指的是一個人反應敏銳、機靈、學習、理解、找出問題和答案的能力強,它多少是天生的,跟一般所說的IQ有很大的交集。但智慧指的則是一個人能衡量全局,看出什麼是重點,什麼是最可行又圓滿對策的領悟力。大家普遍認為,這種領悟力需要經驗的累積,所以通常是年紀愈大才愈有智慧,這也是很多文化都有「智慧老人」傳說的原因。<p>般若之智,世人本自有之<p>惠能也談智慧,首先,他沿襲傳統佛經,以梵語「般若」來稱呼智慧(表示不同於普通智慧),但對智慧或 …

談論藥物成癮時,不要只引用「老鼠樂園」實驗

如果你關心藥物成癮的議題,相信會看過記者海利(Johann Hari)的TED演講〈你對上癮的所有認知都是錯的〉。<p>海利在演講中批評以刑罰阻嚇作為減少濫藥手段的「向毒品宣戰」政策,同時以葡萄牙的除罪化經驗說明,把原本用作懲罰成癮者的金錢拿去協助他們融入社會,效果顯著。他認為要讓人脫離毒癮,最重要是找回生活連結,並以「成癮的反面不是戒斷,而是關係」作總結。<p>的確,以懲罰作為手段無助減少成癮者,葡萄牙的政策亦很值得各國參考。海利希望反駁對藥物成癮的一種常見看法︰當身體接觸容易上癮的物質(如海洛英)一段時間,就會開始「綁架」大腦,然而產生依賴,導致成癮。他認為這完全錯誤,真正令人成癮的是環境。<p>只是,海利 …
