基督教思想史第二部 – 第二章﹕古典主義與浪漫主義對啟蒙運動的反抗

29th Dec 2008 - 08:55pm 宗教
去年因為忙著去印度工幹和結婚﹐閱讀這部書的計劃暫停了。基文會那邊的讀書會早完結了﹐只有一位會友能夠堅持到最後。但我不想就此半途而癈﹐希望善用這個假期讀畢餘下的三章﹐完成這部使我獲益良多的鉅著。…

6 levels of mitigation

28th Dec 2008 - 12:33pm Daily Scribble
When I am reading Malcolm Gladwell’s Outlier, his main concept is not that great, but I picked up something else that is very useful. When you want to persuade someone, there are many ways to say it. Depending on the power distance between…

Outliers – Malcolm Gladwell

26th Dec 2008 - 10:15pm 書評
我對在智識分子中吹起的Malcolm Gladwell旋風也算後知後覺﹐憑著兩本薄薄的大作Blink和Tipping Point成為最有影響力的當代學者。不過我也是最近一年才聽過他的名堂﹐拜讀他那兩本被譽為必讀書藉的重要著作。此君著作貴精不貴多﹐對上一本Blink已經是05年的事。各界讀者耐心等候了三年﹐總於等到他姍姍來遲的新書Outliers。這本書仍然是薄薄的二百來頁﹐與前作一樣富可讀性﹐從觀察一些生活上的軼事開始﹐輔以嚴緊的學術論文作注腳﹐推論出讓讀者意料之外的結論。…

Baby Mum-Mum與全球化

23rd Dec 2008 - 10:06pm 政治經濟
今天去探朋友一歲大的BB女﹐我朋友的髮線很明顯在節節敗退。還記得早兩年我做他結婚的兄弟時﹐他雖然不算多頭髮﹐但還未稀疏到頭肉清析可見。一歲大的BB最好玩﹐剛剛開始懂爬行﹐又不怕陌生人。BB年紀太細像一團飯沒有反應﹐年紀太大又頑皮不聽話。BB女生了八隻BB牙﹐可以除了吃奶外﹐還吃些固體食物。BB媽媽見BB扭計想吃東西﹐便給她吃一塊Baby…

Persona Trinity Soul 女神異聞錄

21st Dec 2008 - 08:58pm 動漫
近年多看著重觀能刺激的動畫﹐不是瘋狂爆笑便是打到飛起﹐竟然不習慣看一些描寫細膩的動畫。本來每個星期追看《女神異聞錄》﹐可惜這套動畫與《高達00》和《反逆R2》同季﹐看罷那些充滿映像刺激的動畫﹐再看這套要用心感受的動畫﹐實在忍受不了緩慢的風格是只好暫擱下來遲些再看。早陣子有空把這套動畫翻出來﹐由頭到尾一次過細心品嘗﹐心無旁鶩可以培養情緒﹐投入動畫的世界靜心欣賞﹐興幸沒有錯過這齣很有韻味的作品。…

Nutcracker

I watched Nutcracker with Pat tonight, to be exact, I was sleeping next to Pat when she was watching the ballet. Originally I wanted to write an review about Nutcracker, then I realize I didn’t watch much of the show. My eye lid already felt…

I am pretty late to join the DSLR bandwagon. I just bought my first DSLR two months ago. In fact, it’s not even my camera, it’s the birthday present for my wife. When I first got it, I took some snapshot to make sure it works fine. Then…

飯前禱

16th Dec 2008 - 10:00pm 宗教
我一向沒有吃飯前祈禱的習慣﹐不過結婚後每次食飯前﹐老婆都會提醒我要唸飯前經。有時太肚餓或老婆太慢﹐我已經把食物放入口中﹐她也要我邊吃邊補唸經。畢竟我信教多年對吃飯前祈禱已不大抗拒﹐也能夠理解在神學慨念中﹐我們要凡事感恩的重要性﹐當然這也包括為我們的食物謝恩。只是我認為感恩是一個恆常的心態﹐並不需要無時無刻掛在口唇邊。對食物感恩與神心照便可以了﹐不用很形式化在吃飯前特地祈禱。除非怕自己會忘記感恩﹐才需要一日三次提醒自己。至於其他食飯前祈禱的原因倒可以不用理會﹐不是迷信便是矯柔造作扮野。說食飯前祈禱可以潔淨食物﹐是沒有科學根據的迷信。說食飯前祈禱是在人前做見證宣揚耶穌﹐則與耶穌在馬太福音第六章中所說﹐站在十字路口禱告的偽善者無異。…
