新文化运动百年:何为启蒙、何为文化自觉

2015-05-27

来源:澎湃新闻

作者:许纪霖、秋风、周濂 等

新文化运动百年以来,中国思想界动荡于黑格尔式的一元论历史观与后现代主义的文化相对主义这两极之间,文化的主体性问题陷于散焦的尴尬状态,文明与文化之间的冲突一直没有解决。

   【编者按】

以陈独秀创办《新青年》杂志为标志,新文化运动至今百年了。这场运动,也被称为中国的启蒙运动,然而,百年之后,何为启蒙,何为文化自觉,依然悬而未决,争议颇多。新文化运动,究竟是何种意义上的启蒙,它与欧洲的启蒙运动有何异同?五四所产生的思想觉悟,究竟是文明自觉,还是文化自觉?在新文化运动汇入世界主流文明的同时,中国的文化主体性何在,中国人的文化认同何在?这些在百年中国思想史中反复回荡的时代主题,依然摆在21世纪中国知识分子的面前。

5月16日,华东师范大学ECNU-UBC现代中国与世界联合研究中心、知识分子与思想史研究中心主办了主题为“何为启蒙、何为文化自觉”的研讨会,邀请具有不同思想和学科背景的专家学者齐聚一堂,展开自由的、多元的对话。

本次研讨会共分三个单元,分别由华东师大历史系许纪霖、北京航空航天大学姚中秋和中国人民大学周濂作主讲报告,与会并参与讨论的有(按音序排名):复旦大学白彤东,华东师范大学陈赟、崇明、方旭东、高瑞泉、顾红亮、李永晶、刘擎、邱立波、宋宏、唐小兵、吴冠军、周保巍、周林刚,上海交通大学杨帆,上海师范大学郭美华等。

JOE BIDEN SAYS BIBLE BELIEVING CHRISTIANS VIOLATE LGBT RIGHTS BY SIMPLY EXISTING

from Now the End Begins:

STATEMENT BY THE VICE PRESIDENT ON THE INTERNATIONAL DAY AGAINST HOMOPHOBIA AND TRANSPHOBIA

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” … 652 more words
