Humanism as the Theme of Chinese Modernity

#1 Post by newcomer123 » January 5th, 2008, 6:05 pm

Because of concerns about copyright, I have removed the content of this post, which was a 6,000 word article. A link to the original article is provided by Alan in his post below.

Can you tell us your purpose in posting this here and in what context did you come across it? Was there some particular question it raises that you'd like others here to consider or discuss?

I have never heard of the author (Wang Hui) before - do you know anything about him? Is it you? However, it appears this was published by the University of Montreal in their Surfaces journal in 1995.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Speaking entirely for myself newcomer123, such a huge cut'n'paste post is quite offputting.

Perhaps a short post outlining the main points you want to get across, with a link to the larger piece for those with an interest in the topic, may encourage discussion?

Welcome to TH by the way. Please feel free to introduce yourself and get to know the folk here. We are a friendly bunch with a wide range of interests.

Woah!

That's a lot to get through.
What sort of replies were you expecting?
What is the humanistic spirit? Is humanistic spirit already lost? Does the false alarm that humanistic spirit is lost imply that people proposing this harbor an elitist arrogance if the humanistic spirit is merely a kind of knowledge and narrative?
Merely???
There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating staying in EU.

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of staying in the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens will be caused by leaving EU?
3. Should the supreme court ruling on British subjects be based in UK?

It's probably also a breach of copyright.

Good point. I've now removed the article. I'm surprised that, having posted the piece, newcomer123 hasn't returned to answer Alan's questions about it.

One of the questions I posed was whether newcomer 123 was, indeed, the writer, in which case there may not have been a copyright issue. However, a link to the article is all that is needed.

For all you Eurocentrics out there, here’s an article about him: http://www.iht.com/articles/2006/10/13/news/left.php
