何谓“欧洲文明”?

陈乐民、周弘认为,促进欧洲社会发展和进步的文明,主要是指:以求真善美的希腊思想为源头的哲学、伦理学和美学;重视社会效能的政治学、经济学、法学;凝合人生、人性、人格至善本性的基督教精神;探索宇宙,改造自然,造福人类的科学实践。

马克思在分析希腊和罗马建立殖民地根源时非常精辟的一段论述:“在古代国家,在希腊和罗马,采取周期性地建立殖民地形式的强迫移民是社会制度的一个固定环节。这两个国家的整个制度都是建立在人口的一定限度上的,超过这个限度,古代文明就有毁灭的危险。……由于生产力不够发展,公民权要由一种不可违反的一定数量对比关系来决定。那时,惟一的出路就是强迫移民。”这种贸易和殖民的过程,也是希腊人开始走向文明的过程。
LOL

西欧文明之所以有深厚、持久的历史文化传统和创造性活力,其根本原因在于:西欧进入文明社会以来,在特定历史条件下,它经历了约两千五百年的奴隶制社会,一千多年的封建制社会,近四百年的资本主义社会,这些社会形态及其历史阶段都得到比较充分的发展,而且西欧文明在各历史阶段,又善于从周边的诸多外部文明中吸纳、摄取优秀文化成果,才使自身得以发展、壮大。
FRD Norbert Elias

刘文明认为,“文明”观念在欧洲经历了一个演变过程,它源于中世纪宫廷社会的“宫廷礼仪”,经文艺复兴时期的“礼貌”,最终于18世纪中叶出现“文明”这一名词,到19世纪发展成为具有“现代”意涵的“文明”概念。在这一过程中,通过自诩为“文明”群体的“自我”与被贬低为“野蛮”群体的“他者”之间的互动,欧洲人对“文明”的认知及自我“文明”的认同得到强化,并将“文明阶梯”的空间序列时间化,以欧洲经验为基础的“文明”概念被建构起来。

25 Years of WIRED Predictions: Why the Future Never Arrives
These early views of the sharing economy were accurate depictions of the moment, but poor visions of the future. Within a few short years, many of those Uber drivers would be stuck paying off their cars in sub-minimum-wage jobs with no benefits. What began as an earnest insight about bits and atoms quickly turned into an arbitrage opportunity for venture capitalists eager to undercut large, lucrative markets by skirting regulations. To meet the growth and monetization demands of investors, yesterday’s sharing economy became today’s gig economy.

Woman in 9/11 Photo Hires the Same Photog for Her Wedding 17 Years Later
After the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001, a dust-covered Joanne Capestro was photographed by street photographer Phil Penman as she stumbled away from Ground Zero. Fast forward 17 years, and Capestro recently had Penman photograph her again — this time for her wedding.
Capestro had been working as an assistant secretary on the 87th floor of the North Tower when the hijacked American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the skyscraper five or six floors above her. She then ran down 87 flights of stairs in 22 minutes and had barely stepped outside before the tower began to collapse.
And as she walked away from the dust-covered blocks surrounding Ground Zero, Penman noticed her and captured his now-famous photo.

The 2008 Crash Was Not a Singular Event - WhoWhatWhy
How a Decade of Financial Crisis Changed the World
The holy grail of physics is a unified field theory that somehow explains both the micro and macro aspects of how the world works. The same holds true for what Thomas Carlyle called the “dismal science” of economics, as we seek to understand the causes and consequences of the 2008 financial meltdown.
In this week’s WhoWhatWhy podcast, Jeff Schechtman talks with economic historian Adam Tooze, professor of history at Columbia University and award-winning author, about a reinterpretation of the 2008 financial crisis through the lens of what came before and what followed in its wake.
On this tenth anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, Tooze explains how, contrary to popular mythology, this was not just a problem that started in the US and rippled outward, but a global problem: the first real crisis of the global age.

0DAYROX ► Melodic Rock, AOR, Hard Rock, Prog, Classic Rock news: SAMMY HAGAR and The Wabos - Live Hallelujah [CD version full]
With the recent batch of SAMMY HAGAR albums featured here, another one of you asked for SAMMY HAGAR and The Wabos' "Live Hallelujah" in its true CD release. The audio versions floating around are taken from the video-DVD.
This is the real one, pretty hard to find.
For his first live album in about 25 years, Sammy Hagar originally wanted to capture a full concert, but since that ran nearly three hours, he scrapped that and culled highlights from his co-headlining tour with David Lee Roth in 2002, when Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony was part of the band.
Hagar worked out a neat trick where he sequenced the album like a studio album, not a concert, but retained the raw, live, feel of a concert.
And, make no mistake, this is a raw, loud recording -- over-amplified guitars, vocals sung from the gut, everything turned to 11.
It has a visceral punch, particularly since "the Red Rocker" admirably decided to retain mistakes.

McCain Refused Manafort's Desire To Run '08 Convention - The Atlantic
Manafort saw managing the 2008 Republican convention as almost a birthright. But McCain denied him the job. He couldn’t abide Manafort’s pro-Russian clients—and told him so.  
A central feature of John McCain’s biography was his capacity for change. After he sullied himself in the Savings and Loan scandal of the late eighties, he self-consciously transformed  into a warrior on behalf of the cause of political reform. And then, in the course of his insurgent challenge to the anointed candidacy of George W. Bush—which McCain referred to as the “Death Star”—he came to understand how the mindless libertarianism of his early political career didn’t fully reflect his true beliefs. McCain began to criticize the regressive tax cuts that he once supported—what began as a tactical maneuver, then seemingly acquired the weight of conviction.  Luke Skywalker didn’t win that fight, but he returned to fight the Bush tax cuts in the Senate.
This is what made McCain so admirable to those who disagree with his politics: a profound sense of humility, openness to learning from his own error, an ability to adjust core beliefs in response to changing evidence, an insatiable hunger for rebellion.
