中国信息社会之"道"与互文化信息伦理

本文以法国汉学家弗朗索瓦.于连的洞见为基楚来讨论直接与间接话语在"远东"和"远西"的区别。
这个区别主要不是一个语法上或修辞上的区别,
而是一个关于存在性的区别。
它涉及到人与世界的关系,
并旨在为思考信息社会的伦理道德问题提供一个互文化的基础。
我认为"远西"的信息道德观及其伦理思索强调直接话语的原则,
而间接话语的原则则构成"远东"人际交往的基础。
在本文的第一部分,我將会解释"远西"对直接与间接话语这个区别的理解,
然后在第二部分说明这个区别在"远东"的相关性和差异,
並在最后提出这个区别对中国信息社会及互文化对话的重要性。
(Transl. Pak-Hang Wong)
