真道系列(二)不可抗逆的「命中註定」- 宿命論(上)

我之前在大學也寫過宿命論,標題名《Consider Fatalism》,這次主要是翻譯及簡化。
如果要簡單說明宿命論,那就是不論人類如何堅持、如何努力,都不可能改變命運。
打個比方,如果我註定了會在明年被人用刀捅死,就算我知道事件的整個過程,努力避免,甚至那一整個月都不出家門,事故還是會一模一樣的發生。

如果宿命論成立的話,那麼人生的一切努力和掙扎都沒有意義,因為一切都是註定了的。

很多人都覺得哲學太過深奧,又或是覺得哲學太過天馬行空。
某程度上,我都同意,不過我希望這個系列能夠將看似深奧的邏輯簡單化,但如果是嫌哲學不切實際,這個我沒甚麼辦法,因為我本來就只懂得活在自己的世界裡頭。

我大概一年前發表過一篇文章,結論出自由意志在邏輯上不成立;不過那跟宿命論完全無關。

「命中註定」可以從很多方向論證,這次主要說的,是 Richard Taylor 所提出的說法 (我個人並不同意宿命論,但我不會在這篇作任何駁斥,這篇只是解釋)。 20 more words
