The Dilemma of the Western World Today and Literary Classics [当代西方世界困境与文学经典] [application of Fromm's theories to art]

  • 本文旨在探讨当代西方世界困境,以及一神论在克服这种困境的方法中所扮演的角色和所处的位置。宗教虽受到不少批评,但有一点非常明显:我们试图实现自己在现实中的定位,却未能征服自己对需求的超越。本文拟举出列奥·托尔斯泰、林语堂、阿尔伯特·施韦泽和埃里希·弗洛姆各自的观点,并对其加以比较:尽管几位大家的观点之间存在差异,但在以下方面,则殊途同归:宗教和人性两者间,具有相得益彰、共存共荣的关系,同时,我们可以从文学经典中找寻化解这种困境的文化资源。
  • This article aims to explore the dilemma of the contemporary Western world, as well as the role and position of monotheism in overcoming this dilemma. Although religion has received a lot of criticism, one thing is very obvious: we try to realize our position in reality, but we fail to conquer our transcendence of needs. This article intends to cite and compare the views of Leo Tolstoy, Lin Yutang, Albert Schweitzer, and Erich Fromm: Although there are differences between the views of several people, but in the following aspects, different paths lead to the same goal: Religion and human nature have a relationship of mutual benefit, coexistence and co-prosperity. At the same time, we can find cultural resources to resolve this dilemma from literary classics. [Automatic translation]
