现代语境中的老庄思想

2015、06、25 7:30pm 免费入场 理性与科技的发展历史,是一部人类不断掠夺自然的历史。通过对自然资源的索取与改造,人类建构了一个俯看自然生物圈之外的”高级”世界。这个世界充溢着实用主义和个人价值, 无处不展示着人类的智慧与力量,但同时也滋生了一些无法内部消化的问题。这时,我们面临聆听其他思想可能性的需要。川大博士后曾武佳在研究古老的老庄思想后,发现其中提出的理念对当今社会热点具有一定的实践价值。 6月25日晚7:30,她将解读玄之又玄的老庄思想。在非”常道”、非”常名”、”道法自然”、”不言之教”的背后,剖析现代社会”自然农法”的兴起、对现行教育的启示和与后现代主义的辨析。 届时将有道教研究泰斗作为嘉宾。 曾武佳:经济学博士,四川大学道教与宗教研究所哲学博士后,四川省会展经济促进会秘书长,中国城市经济学会理事,四川大学区域规划研究所副主任。
