    謝謝你們的 公開信 ,表達了對哲學藏書在今年暑假移往聯合圖書館的關注。在電子圖書館的發展中,人文學科的進展顯然較為緩慢。爲著中大師生及未來的人文學科研究、教學和學習需要,圖書館必須致力保存人文學科印刷本書籍的可持續性和整體性,而將哲學藏書移往聯合圖書館正是履行這承諾的一項措施。

    我們同意圖書館書籍的未來館藏位置包括哲學藏書,以及聯合圖書館的發展是重要的討論議題。這一點在2015年5月28日的公開論壇中已特別提及,諮詢工作早已展開,亦會繼續進行。由於牽涉很多持份者及校園內的圖書館,我們在論壇已指出這些討論需時進行。圖書館原本準備在未來數星期,當學生和教師暑假回來後公佈其他諮詢計劃,但也樂意提前,以回應 貴會的公開信。


    祝 學安

NAL specializes in Chinese language and literature, fine arts and philosophy, all subject areas where print collection growth is still strong. To accommodate future growth and after consultation with students, faculty and the Colleges the Library will relocate the philosophy collection to the United College...

    Prof. Jiang Yuhui was guest speaker of this University Library Research Commons talk.

    Throughout the history of Chinese painting, the female boudoir painters have dramatically demonstrated their prominent distinctions which could or should be comprehended from different perspectives. The studies of cultural history, the feminist research, and the critical analysis of power and discourse, etc., have all contributed greatly to the further understanding of these female painters' art world. However, the philosophical thinking, especially phenomenology, might offer us an alternative angle. The problem of synaesthesia, one of the major themes in Phenomenology of Perception, could serve as a guiding thread into this magnificent pictorial world. Developing the argument along this main...
