被 Gadamer 部分打臉惹:

Time is no longer primarily a gulf to be bridged because it separate; it is actually the supportive ground of the course of events in which the present is rooted. Hence temporal distance is not something that must be overcome. This was, rather, the naive assumption of historicism, namely that we must transpose ourselves into the spirit of age, think with its ideas and its thoughts, not with our own, and thus advance toward hstorical objectivity. In fact the important thing is to recognize temporal distance as a positive and productive condition enabling understanding. it is not a yawning abyss but is filled with the continuity of custom and tradition, in the light which everything handed down presents itself to us. Here it is not too much to speak of the genuine productibity of the course of events.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
