摘要:
古代的阴和阳的概念被习惯地用于宇宙论目的。周敦颐的太极图把阴阳看成是构成物质宇宙的基本元素,但当今受西方思想影响的中国哲学家们却不相信这种用法。他们不应该这样做,可以用一种深刻的哲学方法把阴和阳理解为一种彼此互补的接受性和指向性的冲动。当这样理解阴阳的时候,它们就可以被看作是牛顿运动定律(一个物体的后一运动接受了该物体前一运动的那种指向性冲动)的基础。这样理解的阴和阳,也同样体现于许多化学和生物学的现象中。因此,现代科学实际上支持了周敦颐的基本思想,可以说阴阳为整个自然宇宙提供了塑形。
Abstract:
The ancient notions of yin and yang were traditionally used for cosmological purposes. Zhou Dunyi’s Diagram of the Supreme Polarity treats them as grounding the basic elements of the material universe, but nowadays Chinese philosophers influenced by Western thought are suspicious of such uses. I argue here that they shouldn’t be. Yin and yang can be understood in a deep philosophical way as mutually complementary receptivity and directed impulse/impulsion, but when they are, they can be seen as the basis for Newton’s laws of motion (a body receives its later motion from the directed impulsion of its earlier motion). Yin and yang thus understood are similarly instantiated in a host of chemical and biological phenomena. So modern science actually supports Zhou’s fundamental idea, and yin yang can be said to give its shape to the entire natural universe.
