May The Force Be With Orient
The lack of ontology, the lack of human nature, and the lack of process rationality. The three questions point to the philosophical dilemma of the Chinese. The methodology of ontology is simple belief, the methodology of human nature theory is the spirit of skepticism, and the methodology of process rationality is the ability to subdivide. It lacks the power to simply believe, lacks the depth of doubt that only targets human nature, and lacks the ability to subdivide ideas and knowledge. It embodies the dilemma of the Chinese philosophical methodology.
The main reason for his philosophical dilemma at such a low level for a long time is the hasty handling of the issue of good and evil. Indeed, the problem of distinguishing between good and evil has always been a basic problem in human society. This basic question was raised at the beginning of “Genesis”. Regarding the tree of knowledge to distinguish between good and evil, human beings have the first free choice. If they choose not to eat, they will live forever. Choosing to eat, mankind will inevitably die. This great revelation from God reminds us that in the context where good propositions and evil propositions coexist, there is also the proposition of man’s “right to choose freely.”
Good propositions, evil propositions, man’s right to free choice, and man’s mission and meaning are presented here. The sacred agreement on everyone’s right to free choice is the source of human thought and knowledge. Human beings face the basic problem of good and evil, according to the order of free choice, it is natural to withdraw from this proposition and enter the subdivision order of knowledge, instead of entering this proposition to forcibly explain the transcendental order. Reading the thoughts of the famous British philosopher G.E.MOOR, I read a profound statement, “The ultimate good cannot be subdivided.” I think this is the deepest point of Western thinkers.
