貞觀政要 吳競撰

君道第一

貞觀初,太宗謂侍臣曰:「為君之道,必須先存百姓。若損百姓以奉其身,猶割股 以啖腹,腹飽而身斃。若安天下,必須先正其身,未有身正而影曲,上治而下亂者。朕 每思傷其身者不在外物,皆由嗜欲以成其禍。若耽嗜滋味,玩悅聲色,所欲既多,所損 亦大,既妨政事,又擾生民。且復出一非理之言,萬姓為之解體,怨讟既作,離叛亦興 。朕每思此,不敢縱逸。」諫議大夫魏徵對曰:...

MORALS IN TRADE AND COMMERCE

The most beautiful thing about youth is its power and eagerness to make ideals, and he is unfortunate who goes out into the world without some picture of services to be rendered, or of a goal to be attained. There are very few of us who, at some time or another...

第一章 道可道,非常道。名可名,非常名。無名天地之始,有名萬物之母。故常無欲,以觀其妙;常有欲,以觀其徼。此兩者同出而異名,同謂之玄,玄之又玄,眾妙之門。 第二章 天下皆知美之為美,斯惡已。皆知善之為善,斯不善已。故有無相生,難易相成,長短相較,高下相傾,音聲相和,前後相隨。是以聖人處無為之事,行不言之教;萬物作焉而不辭,生而不有,為而不恃,功成而弗居。夫唯弗居,是以不去。 第三章 不...

Fundamental Principles of the Metaphysic of Morals –by: Immanuel Kant

The Fundamental Principles of the Metaphysic of Morals, also known as The Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals or Foundations of the Metaphysics of Morals or Grounding of the Metaphysics of Morals, is Immanuel Kant's first contribution to moral philosophy. It argues for an a priori basis for morality. Where the Critique of Pure Reason laid out Kant's metaphysical and epistemological ideas, this relatively short, primarily meta-ethical, work was intended to outline and define the concepts and arguments shaping his future work The Metaphysics of Morals. However, the latter work is much les...

The Praise of Folly –by: Desiderius Erasmus

The Praise of Folly (Greek title: Morias Enkomion (Μωρα Εγκμιον), Latin: Stultitiae Laus, sometimes translated as In Praise of Folly, Dutch title: Lof der Zotheid) is a satirical essay written in 1509 by Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam (1466/69-1536). It is considered one of the most influential works of literature in Western civilization and one of the catalysts of the Protestant Reformation.

It starts off with a satirical learned encomium after the manner of the Greek satirist Lucian, a piece of virtuoso foolery; it then takes a darker tone in a series of orations, as...

The Mind and the Brain –by: Alfred Binet

Today, almost every layperson understands the concept of intelligence tests and can glibly discuss IQ scores. In fact, these have become so common in the popular imagination that magazines, websites and pop quizzes offer to assess your intelligence at the drop of a hat!

In this scenario, it's interesting to recall the very first person who proposed the concept of measurable intelligence. Alfred Binet was basically a clinical psychologist whose wide-ranging interests in learning difficulties faced by school children prompted him to undertake extensive studies in human cognition, ps...
