    自由有不同的層次:政治上講求人權、法治,是為了保障每個個體的自由,這是自由的客觀表現;人被名、利、權、位所支配,營役而不知其所歸,是主體自由的陷失;更令我們困擾的,人會否其實是不自由的,一切都是受命運所播弄?講座透過講者不同的生活體驗,為我們探求自由的多面性。

    第一講:自由與生命世界
    自由為什麼重要?這裡有太多的理由,因為自由是可貴,不自由毋寧死,自由是天賦人權‥‥。其中一個觀念很重要,卻又常常為人所忽略:自由是個體與生命世界聯繫起來的紐帶,失去了自由,人便與世界撕裂。講者嘗試從政治哲學的角度,探索自由的價值。

    講者:周保松教授(香港中文大學政治與行政學系副教授)
    日期:2017年4月22日(星期六)
    時間:下午3時30分至5時30分
    地點: 香港中文大學 康本國際學術園6號演講廳 (YIA LT-6)

    第二講:命運下的自由
    希臘人教告我們命運的悲劇,人永遠受著命運的播弄牽絆。也許,當伊底帕斯(Oedipus)知悉神喻後,大可以拖延耽逸,靜待殺父娶母的命運可怖的降臨;但,他選擇了反抗。最可惜的,也正因為他行使自由而反抗,才一步一步陷入命運的泥淖裏。人能否在命運下尋得自由?讓我們聆聽聖哲們的智慧。

    講者:吳啟超教授(香港中文大學哲學系助理教授)
    日期: 2017年 4月29日(星期六)
    時間:下午3時30分至5時30分
    地點:香港中文大學 康本國際學術園6號演講廳 (YIA LT-6)

    第三講: 生死抉擇的自由
    現代醫療倫理出現許多議題,包括:安樂死、預前指示(拒絕治療的指示)、臨終關懷、善別等等...

    內容簡介:
    武術是中國文化不可或缺的一環,武術的發展也是社會發展的側面。現時市面上的香港武術著作,大多聚焦武術本身的承傳與發展,鮮有從社會發展角度出發論述香港武術史。本書探析武術與香港社會發展的互動關係:一方面揭示轉變中的社會對武術帶來的衝擊,另一方面也探析武術對香港社會的影響。隨著社會的發,傳統武術已漸漸融入一般市民生活,發展成今天老幼咸宜、有益身心的體育運動。

    是次講座,特別介紹及討論新著「止戈為武:中華武術在香江」。本書以嶄新角度,介紹各門派宗師及歷史、武術宗師如何在港謀生,以至武館是一個怎樣的地方,展現武術與香港社會的互動關係。香港武術的興旺高度影響本地文化,各種媒體,包括電影、電視及漫畫等,都充斥以武術為主題的創作;而社會的發展,由經濟轉型、社會價值觀的轉變,以至政治前途的不確定等,都不斷改寫香港武術的發展。
