He is now an associate professor at the Chinese Language and Culture Center of the Joint International College of Beijing Normal University-Hong Kong Baptist University.

He is the author of the monographs “Act and You Zeshi – Thirty-Six Strategies of ” “ A New Account of the Tales of the World””, “Confucius and Deadwood – A Modern Interpretation of Traditional Chinese Thought”, and the translation of “Dialogue with History: China’s Narration of King Goujian of Yue in the 20th Century” (written by Ke Wen), and published dozens of papers in such publications as “Literature, History and Philosophy” and “Confucius Studies”.

 

传统对于魏晋名士的解读,通常将他们的种种行为视为对当时政治、礼教和社会的反抗。这样的解读有着明显的二分倾向:把嵇康、阮籍等人看作是潇洒而正义的,而他们所反抗的则是保守而非正义的。因此,我们常常把魏晋名士理想化,认为他们的个性与逍遥高不可攀。

如果我们进入《世说新语》的世界之中,就会发现这样的两分其实是不存在的。名士和我们一样,优点与缺点并存。他们既不想成为神一样的圣人,也不想做无情感的小人;而他们种种夸张的举止,更多的也许是为了寻找能理解和欣赏自己的朋友。事实上,从德行到仇隙,《世说新语》的三十六门几乎展现了真实生活中的方方面面。因此,《世说新语》的魅力正在于可以让读者在其中找到自己的影子,从而能与名士们展开共情的对话。

 

太阳城亚洲最新登录网址The traditional interpretation of the famous scholars in Wei and Jin dynasties usually regards their behaviors as a resistance to the politics, ethics and society at that time. This interpretation has an obvious dichotomous tendency: ji Kang and Ruan Ji are regarded as dashing and just, while what they resist is conservative and unjust. Therefore, we often idealize the wei and Jin famous scholars, thinking that their personalities and unrestrainedness are unattainable.

太阳城亚洲最新登录网址If we enter the world of “ “ A New Account of the Tales of the World””, we will find that there is no such dichotomy. Like us,famous people have both advantages and disadvantages. They neither want to be god-like saints, nor do they want to be emotionless villains; and their exaggerated behaviors may be more to find friends who can understand and appreciate their own. In fact, from virtue to feud, the 36 chapters of  “ A New Account of the Tales of the World”u show almost every aspect of real life. Therefore, the charm of “ A New Account of the Tales of the World” lies in the fact that readers can find themselves in it and have empathic conversations with famous scholars.
