Description

著名國學學者彭林教授於3月10日蒞臨嶺南大學,主持大學論壇。

彭教授以「國學的過去、現狀與未來」為題,指出如何成為有別於一般動物的「完人」,一直是儒家最關心、最殷切探討的議題。彭教授表示:「儘管數十萬年前,人類體格上的進化已完成,但精神上的進化仍在進行。有時候我們任由一些動物的天性凌駕於人性之上,使我們從動物進化為『完人』的過程中不進反退。」因此,彭教授鼓勵同學多讀儒家經典,提醒我們精神進化,以臻「完人」的重要性。

彭教授是清華大學人文學院歷史系教授及博士生導師、國際儒學聯合會理事、中國社會科學院古代文明研究中心客座研究員。彭教授主要從事先秦史、中國古代學術思想史,以及中國古代禮樂文化的研究,曾獲頒北京市優秀教學成果一等獎、國家級優秀教學成果二等獎等獎項。2010年彭教授更榮獲清華大學首屆「十佳教師」的稱號。

Renowned Chinese scholar Prof Peng Lin spoke at Lingnan’s University Assemblies on 10 March.

In his lecture on the past, present and future of Chinese classical learning, Prof Peng pointed out that how to become a “full man” who distinguishes himself from the animal has been the ultimate concern and inquiry of Confucianism. “While the physical evolution of man was completed hundreds of thousands years ago, spiritual evolution is still in progress,” Prof Peng said. “At times we let our animal instincts take over and thus pull us back from, rather than getting closer to, becoming a full man.” He thus called for studying the Confucian classics to remind us of the importance of spiritual evolution in order to become “full” men and women.

Prof Peng is professor and doctoral advisor of history at the School of Humanities, Tsinghua University. He also serves as a council member of the International Confucian Network and a visiting researcher at the Ancient Civilisations Research Centre, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. His research interests cover the history of ancient China, intellectual history of imperial China and the ancient Chinese culture of ritual and music. He also received a first-class municipal teaching award of Beijing and a second-class state teaching award of China. In 2010, Prof Peng was selected one of the first Best 10 Teachers at Tsinghua University.
