毫不費力(無為):傅爾布萊特系列講座

 

    我們常形容一人不費吹灰之力完成一件困難的任務。但是當我們試著把人類行為中所謂的“毫不費力”概念化,就沒這麼容易了。這次的講座柏嘯虎教授就要從哲學、行為心理學與認知科學的角度一探這個橫跨中西的概念。

    東西方的哲學思維傳承了不同的文化結晶,但現今的哲學訓練經常偏重其一而忽略了整體。­柏嘯虎教授認為處理當代社會與道德問題時,不論東西方哲學都有其實用之處。柏教授在傅­爾布萊特獎學金的支持下,於臺灣大學哲學研究所開設"美國實用主義"及"比較道德心理學"兩門課程分享他在比較哲學領域的心得。於訪談­中他也分享了他這一年於台灣生活的體驗。

    柏嘯虎教授擅長人類行為研究,尤其專精於“毫不費力”或“無為”的探討。柏教授有深厚的比較哲學背景,尤其擅長於中國哲學領域。他還曾與創造力大師米哈里合作而涉足心理學,進而踏入認知科學領域,合著由麻省理工學院出版的“不費力的專注力--專注力與行動認知科學的新觀點(暫譯)”。
