    儒家学说大部分是论证这种社会制度合理,或者是这种制度的理论说明。经济条件打下了它的基础,儒家学说说明了它的伦理意义。由于这种社会制度是一定的经济条件的产物,而这些条件又是其地理环境的产物,所以对于中华民族来说,这种制度及其理论说明,都是很自然的。因此,儒家学说自然而然成为正统哲学、这种局面一直保持到现代欧美的工业化侵入。改变了中国生活的经济基础为止。

    Steve Jobs famously dismissed the stylus   when the first iPhone was revealed in 2007 (“ Who wants a stylus. You have to get ‘em and put ‘em away, and you lose ‘em. Yuck. Nobody wants a stylus.”) and Samsung received plenty of ridicule when its Galaxy Note/ stylus bundle was first revealed as detractors mockingly compared it to a Palm Pilot.

    raise payroll taxes on working Americans from 4.2% to 6.2%--a tax that will apply to the first $ 113,000 of earned income. This tax increase will hit anyone who earns money in this country, including "the 47%." So, it's almost like Romney got elected!

    物理学家们常常用电讯的诞生来说明为基础研究提供资金的重要性。容易想象,那些负责安排改进通讯的基金的皇家海军的官员会认为,支持那些成天在昏暗的实验室围绕青蛙腿和导线瞎忙乎的怪人是愚蠢的。 官员们显然会觉得把钱花在饲养良种信鸽上会更合算。

    理论物理的美国学派传统上强调物理直觉,而以牺牲数学上的严密为代价。我将避免探寻这种强调的历史和社会根源,这既是哲学的长处,同时也是它的短处。总的说来,欧洲物理学家在现代数学方面要比他们的美国同行受到更强有力的训练。法国哲学家,现在指的是法国物理学家,在许多美国人看来仍是不可理解的数学化。当然,被一代人当成是空想的东西常常被他们的下一代当成是起码的。泊松等人所用的数学在今天看来犹如儿童游戏,并为每个学物理的大学生所熟知。
