第一场 主题报告

关于复兴儒学的思考 汤一介

一、儒学的复兴和中华民族的复兴是分不开的,这是由历史原因形成的。儒学自孔子起就自觉地继承着夏、商、周三代的文化,从历史上看它曾是中华民族文化发育、成长的根,我们没有可能把这个根子斩断。如果我们人为地把中国民族曾经赖以生存和发展的根子斩断,那么中华民族的复兴就没有可能了。因此,我们只能适时地在传承这个文化命脉的基础上,使之更新。就目前人类社会的现实情况看,我估计在21世纪儒学作为一种精神文化在中国、甚至在世界(特别是在东亚地区)会有新的大发展。为什么儒学会有一个新的发展?原因当然是多方面的,有政治的、经济的原因,但与“西学”(主要指作为精神文化的哲学等等)对中国传统文化(特别是儒学)所进行的全方位的冲击有着密切的关系。正是由于“西学”对中国文化的冲击,使得我们得到对自身文化传统有个自我反省的机会。在长达一百多年中,我们中国人在努力学习、吸收和消化“西学”中,为儒学从传统走向现代奠定了基础。
