理性与激情 | REASON AND PASSION

世上有两类智者:一类认为过去决定着现在,他们关注历史、强调理性、性格保守,奠定了机械论和科学主义;另一类则认为,未来牵引着现在,他们充满激情、勇于幻想、性格开放,开创了有机论和宗教学派。

没有了理性,生活是危险的;而缺少了激情,生活便没有趣味。理性对热情的冲突是一场贯穿着全部人类历史的冲突。人类成就中最伟大的东西都是在理性与激情、保守与开放、机械与有机、科学与宗教的碰撞中诞生的。


There are two groups of wise men in the world: one group believes that the past determines the present, they pay attention to history, emphasize rationality, and are conservative in character, and have established mechanism and science; The other group believes that the future drives the present, and they are passionate, imaginative, and open-minded, creating organic theory and religions.

Without reason, life is dangerous; without passion, life is uninteresting. The conflict between reason and passion has been a conflict throughout human history. The greatest things in human achievement are born in the collision of reason and passion, conservative and open, mechanical and organic, science and religion.
