汉字金文体“爱”字的解构

DECONSTRUCTION OF THE MYTH OF CHARACTER LOVE IN BRONZE SCRIPT

“当解构壳中的果仁时,发现了一种可靠的公理或精辟箴言,此举打破了一种宁静”。

-John D Caputo

Whenever deconstruction finds a nutshell—a secure axiom or a pithy maxim—the very idea is to crack it open and disturb this tranquility

- John D Caputo. (美) 约翰 · D.卡普托

"Deconstruction in a nutshell? Why, the very idea!
The very idea of a nutshell is a mistake and a misunderstanding, an excess of journalistic haste and impatience [...]. Nutshells enclose and encapsulate, shelter and protect, reduce and simplify, while everything in deconstruction is turned toward opening, exposure, expansion, and complexification [...].
The very meaning and mission of deconstruction is to show that things - texts, institutions, traditions, societies, beliefs, and practices [...] - do not have definable meanings and determinable missions, that they are always more than any mission would impose [...].
Whenever it runs up agains a limit, deconstruction presses against it. Whenever deconstruction finds a nutshel - a secure axiom or a pithy maxim - the very idea is to crack it open and disturb this tranquility. Indeed, that is a good rule of thumb in deconstruction. That is what deconstruction is all about, its very meaning and mission, if it has any. One might even say that cracking nutshells is what deconstruction is. In a nutshell.
Deconstruction is the relentless pursuit of the impossible, which means, of things whose possibility is sustained by their impossibility, of things which, instead of being wiped out by their impossibility, are actually nourished and fed by it.

视觉认知中的科学原始思维与古汉字解构 

Civilized Primitive Thinking in Visual Cognition & Deconstruction of Ancient Chinese Characters

书法六体书“爱”字一套,包含金文、篆书、隶书、楷书、行书和草书六体。

 

释文1:金文“爱”字,见于公元前4世纪青铜器上的铭文,由两部分组成:上部是一个仰头大声疾呼的人,下面的部分是“心”,因为在古代中国的观念中,心不仅是供血的器官,更是思维和情感的器官,古语中有“ 心之官则思”的说法。整个字的意思是,人要把心中的爱大声说出来。秦代(公元前3世纪)的小篆中,“心”被包到了人这个字符中,表示爱要包容;到了汉代(公元前2世纪左右),隶书中的“爱”字,多了一只“脚”,这样,爱不仅要有包容,更要有行动。

Interpretation: The character "love" in bronze script on the bronze ware of the 4th century BC, consists of two parts: the upper part is a person who screams upwards, purposing love of importance to human, and the lower part is "heart", in ancient China, the heart, is an organ that has the function of thinking, and emotion. There is an old idiom that says "the heart is an organ of a body that is responsible for thought.", meaning that people should speak out loudly in their hearts. In Qin Dynasty (3rd century BC), the "heart" was enshrined in the character of the human being, indicating that love should be tolerant; in the Han Dynasty (around 2nd century BC), the word "love" in the Lishu(clerical script) script was added "Foot" as part of it, so, love is not only be tolerant, but also have to act.

【心之官则思解释】:心:古人以为心是思维器官,所以把思想的器官、感情等都说做心,现指脑筋;官:官能,作用。脑筋的官能就是思维。相似词:用之则行,舍之则藏 有则改之,无则加勉 既来之,则安之 以己之心,度人之心 穷则思变 学而不思则罔 有则改之 心诚则灵。

解构旨在干扰以便发现(为了发现,干扰是解构的基础意义)。通过解构汉字,您可以学习和获得文字以外的直接内容,并揭示和发现新的含义以及真理。解构汉字是给语言学、文学、视觉艺术、传播学、考古学和后现代思想带来重要的意义。

Deconstruction aims to disturb in order to discover. By deconstructing Chinese characters, you learn to read beyond characters' straightforward content and uncover new meanings and truths. Deconstructing Chinese characters brings important significance to linguistics, literature, visual art, communication, archeology as well as postmodernist thought.

华夏祖先倾向于神话,迷信和形象化神秘力量;今人倾向接受教育,寻求科学知识,二者间存在着巨大的差异。然而,祖先却创造了科学也难以做到的优美的汉字体系,一种极具逻辑性的书写文字。我们如何去以批判性方法对汉字进行深入探索它的价值呢?以现代文明清醒的科学思想来挖掘其当代价值与意义,这不仅对中国有意义,尤其对世界的意义更加重大。 

 

非常重要的一点是,我们必须先了解野蛮人(原始人)与文明思想之间真正的区别所在,并确定原始思想与科学思想的相对价值。

There is a profound difference between the intellectual activity of the the Chinese ancestors inclined to myth-making, superstition, and visualizing mystical powers and that of the educated Chinese of our own day with his search for exact scientific knowledge. Modern culture tends to educate the mind in the direction of sober scientific thought, However, the ancestors created beautiful and logical Chinese writing system that are difficult to achieve in science. How do we critically explore its value? It is important to the world of contemporary values ​​not just to China.

  2. “感知理论” (Theories of Perception)

  3. Perceptual Constancy

  4. Direct and indirect realism

  5. 汉字的发明是直接与间接现实主义的体现(首先必须理解什么是现实主义/realism,在此基础上再理解“直接与间接现实主义”)

 

Theories of perception seek to explain the relationship between reality and our perception of it.

“感知理论”,试图解释现实与对现实的理解之间的关系。
