基督教思想史第二部 – 第五章:調解的新方式 (上)

30th Jan 2009 - 10:19pm 宗教
十九世紀後期綜合神學崩潰﹐扭曲神學的基本要素﹐令神學陷入虛無主義的危機。傳統神學無力要對歷史批判和哲學批判﹐任何神學思想也受到質疑。於是神學家嘗試找出調解的新方法﹐回答如何能夠肯定基督教思想的問題。…

基督教思想史第二部 – 第三章﹕普遍綜合的崩潰(下)

唯意志論和生命哲學 唯意志論是推倒黑格爾綜合系統的最後一個神學思潮。人並不是物質﹐也不是人格﹐而是意志。唯意志論最初源於聖奧古斯定的哲學﹐他認為真實就是意志﹐而意志就是愛。神的愛就是對自我意志的肯定。中世紀方濟各會的神學傳統﹐承接聖奧古斯定和柏拉圖的思想﹐為認意志先於智慧。與之相對的是道明會的神學傳統﹐承接聖多瑪仕和亞里士多德的思想﹐認為智慧先於意志。自康德(Kant)以來的神學思潮﹐均是智慧派佔上風。中世紀神學家Scotus認為神是純意志的存在﹐但在Ockham的神學則變成不理性的意志。若果神是純意志的話﹐祂可以做任何他想做的事情﹐那他就沒有各羅思(Logos)的限制。世界則變成全無規則可尋﹐人類不可能對神有任何期望﹐神甚至可以把善惡倒轉﹐把殺人變成善愛人變成是惡。…

祈克果的存在主義神學 祈克果(Kierkegaard)反對黑格爾的精神學說﹐他不認為人的主觀精神﹐能夠通過宗教和哲學﹐與神的絕對精神融合。他認為人活在存在的領域﹐在這領域中融合未曾發生﹐存在就是要對善與惡作出決擇。祈克果在生時候對十九世紀神學影響不大﹐但他的思想對二十世紀存在主義思潮很有淵源。他認為每個人在神要前也是孤獨﹐世界上的一切也不能解放他活在世上的責任。人會為自己的自由感到焦慮的矛盾﹐一方面為受到限制沒有自由﹐不能真正的存在而焦慮﹐另一方面也為行使自由而失去自我感到焦慮。自由產生墮落﹐墮落產生罪惡感的焦慮。人沒有辨法逃避罪惡感﹐就算自殺也不能消除罪惡感﹐只能夠憑信心的一躍去跳出焦慮。…

明星夢

22nd Jan 2009 - 10:01pm 生活隨筆
今天看Soler樂隊與經理人合約官司的新聞﹐才明白我們不應笑後生仔女發明星夢。很多人小時候也會發明星夢﹐幻想將來長大後當歌星影星。可能我比較有自知之明﹐從小到大也沒有發過明星夢﹐一來我不靚仔二來我不懂唱歌﹐當明星大慨這輩子也無望了。反過來我會笑那些發明星夢的人不切實際﹐說做明星不過表面風光﹐除非成功上位當紅透全港的天皇天后﹐當個半紅不黑的明星仔很霉很慘。原來只是吃不到的酸萄萄﹐看了新聞才知明星仔也很能賺錢。…

In a recession market, it is understandable for a company trying its best to cut its budget in order to stay afloat. However, cutting the supply of box Kleenex to the employees is way too cheap. Not only the box Kleenex won’t save the company…
