崔適(1854—1924),近代經學家,受教于俞樾,治校勘訓詁之學,與章太炎是同門兄弟。他的主要著作有《春秋復始》、《史記探源》、《五經釋要》、 《論語足徵記》等。
這本《史記探源》的核心思想,就是崔適的學術傾向——“今文經學”。他認為《史記》本為今文學,由於劉歆和後人的篡改,乃雜有古文。
他的學術影響了課堂上的一位學生:顧頡剛,顧頡剛成為疑古史派的領袖,崔適功不可沒。
胡適曾經開過一個“最低限度的國學書目”,裏面不含司馬遷的《史記》,但有崔適的這本《史記探源》。胡適一定後悔不該隨便開書單

The Warner-Lambert Co. manufactures and markets pharmaceutical, consumer health care, and confectionery products, including such popular brands as Listerine antiseptic mouthwash, Chiclets gum, Halls lozenges, Certs mints, Rolaids antacids, and Schick razors.

The product of a long history of mergers and acquisitions, the Warner-Lambert name reflects the combined assets of two businesses: the William R. Warner Company, a pharmaceutical and cosmetic concern, and Lambert-Pharmacal, manufacturers of Listerine oral antiseptic, which merged in the 1950s. Thereafter, Warner-Lambert became a large multinational corporation under the leadership of Elmer Holmes Bobst.

Bobst arrived at William R. Warner & Company in 1945, already a veteran executive of the pharmaceutical industry and a multimillionaire. As president of Hoffmann-La Roche's U.S. office, he had proved instrumental in acquiring for the Swiss company a large share of the U.S. drug market. Many observers were surprised that Bobst accepted the position at Warner; he was then 61 years old, wealthy, and could have settled into a comfortable retirement.

However, when Gustave A. Pfeiffer, Warner's chairperson and the only surviving member of the original founding family, approached Bobst with an offer of the presidency, he accepted. Nearly 30 years earlier, Bobst had been asked to join Warner as the head of its pharmaceutical division but declined when the Pfeiffer family refused to sell Bobst any of the company stock (the family held all the common stock). By the mid-1940s, however, Bobst had proved his abilities, and Pfeiffer readily offered the job on Bobst's terms; Bobst was hired and allowed to purchase 11 percent of the common stock. By 1955, Bobst's holdings were worth over $3 million.

What Bobst inherited with his new position was a family operated company suffering from an aging product line and antiquated facilities. Although Pfeiffer's 1916 acquisition of the Hudnut cosmetic line accounted for most of the company's $25 million sales, that product line was barely turning a profit. In an effort to improve the image of the cosmetics production, Bobst renamed the firm Warner-Hudnut in 1950.

Warner had a long history of growth through acquisition. Warner was founded in the mid-nineteenth century by William Warner, a Philadelphia pharmacist who had earned a fortune by inventing a sugar-coating for pills. In 1908, the company was acquired by the Gustavus A. Pfeiffer & Company, a patent medicine company from St. Louis. Pfeiffer retained the Warner company name, moved its headquarters to New York, and began a series of acquisitions that included the Hudnut line and the DuBarry cosmetic company. By the time Bobst assumed the presidency, some 50 companies had been acquired during the 99 years of the Warner company's history.

Bobst's managerial style was well suited to this company acquisition policy. Moreover, his experience with high-level industry and political affairs enabled him to hire a new management team of accomplished executives and public figures. Successful investment bankers, business executives, and political officials were brought in, notably Anna Rosenberg, the company's manager of industrial and public relations, who was once the U.S. Assistant Secretary of Defense, and Alfred Driscoll, later Warner's president, who had served as governor of New Jersey for seven years.

In 1952, Bobst made his first major acquisition, purchasing New Jersey Chilcott Laboratories, Inc. Chilcott earned its reputation as a manufacturer of ethical drugs largely through its development of Peritrate, a long-acting "vasodilator," which enlarged constricted blood vessels. By 1966, an estimated 56 percent of 3.1 million people afflicted by heart disease used Peritrate. While the sales of the drug became Warner-Hudnut's mark of excellence in the pharmaceutical industry, its success was also cause for some controversy.

Peritrate proved useful in a wider application of treatments than originally allowed, and the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved of Peritrate's "new drug" usages in 1959. Over the next several years, however, Warner embarked on a controversial Peritrate advertising campaign. Appearing in several medical journals, including the Journal of the American Medical Association, ten page ads advocated the use of Peritrate not only for the treatment of angina, but as a "life-prolonging" prophylactic for all cardiac patients. The advertisement, based on the results of one study, was released at a time when the FDA had initiated an increasingly aggressive policy of evaluating claims for drug effectiveness. Even as the director of the study refuted the advertisement claims, Warner-Lambert executives stood by the claims for the effectiveness of their drug. However, by 1966, the government, under the directive of the FDA, seized a shipment of the drug, bringing charges against the company's unapproved advocacy of an even wider usage for the drug.

Also during this time, Bobst arranged a merger between his company and Lambert-Pharmacal. Bobst had met the president of Lambert, Edward Williams, at a meeting of the American Foundation for Pharmaceutical Education, and the two decided that their operations, each producing different but reputable products, would complement one another. Bobst was particularly interested in gaining access to Lambert's well-organized distribution network, which incorporated modern marketing techniques previously unavailable at Warner-Hudnut's. Furthermore, Williams brought a strong background in the management of pharmaceutical companies, enhancing Bobst's accomplished executive team, which had little experience in the pharmaceutical industry. When Warner and Lambert merged, former governor Alfred Driscoll was named president of the new company.

Lambert's Listerine product, which had accounted for over 50 percent of Lambert's total sales, guaranteed Warner a large share of the oral antiseptic market.Listerine was developed in the nineteenth century and became widely popular, particularly under the advertising strategy of Gordon Seagrove, who joined Lambert in 1926 after leaving his job as a Calliope-player in the circus. Seagrove made Listerine a household staple by promoting its ability to cure halitosis, sore throats, and dandruff. The advertising copy for one magazine ad depicted a man encouraging a woman to continue massaging Listerine into his head, with the tagline "Tear into it, Honey--It's Infectious Dandruff!"

Listerine continued to increase in popularity under its new ownership; by 1975, the oral antiseptic held a sizeable portion of the $300 million market. Warner-Lambert continued to invest heavily in advertising for Listerine. For years, Listerine had been advertised as a preventative measure against colds and sore throats, and, during the Asian flu epidemic of 1957, Bobst personally placed an ad in Life magazine promoting Listerine's ability to resist the sickness. The company's advertising agency had earlier rejected the ad, since its claims were unsubstantiated, but the promotion resulted in sales increases of $26 million for the year.

By 1975, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) had begun to investigate the Listerine advertisements. The FTC disputed the cold prevention claims of Listerine as insupportable and ordered the company to embark on a disclaimer ad campaign amounting to $10 million, a figure equal to the company's average annual advertising expenditure between 1962 and 1972. The FTC argued that only corrective disclaimers could educate the consumer, and, in 1978, the Supreme Court upheld the FTC's order.

During the 1970s and 1980s, Warner-Lambert made several acquisitions, including Emerson Drug, which made Bromo-Seltzer, cough drop manufacturer Smith Brothers, American Optical, and Schick Shaving. To acquire American Chicle, makers of Chiclets chewing gum, Warner-Lambert used 7.8 million of its own stock, which was then worth about $200 million. Many industry analysts criticized the high price paid for American Chicle; in 1962, the company's net income for the year was under $10 million. By 1983, however, after expanding into foreign markets, Chiclet sales were reaching the $1 billion mark. Ward S. Hagan, chairperson of American Chicle, called its gum and mint business "the largest in the world."

Another merger during this time involved Parke, Davis & Co. However, Warner-Lambert's proposal to merge with Parke, Davis was investigated by the Antitrust Division of the Justice Department. According to the chair of the House Judiciary Committee, the merger would raise "serious problems" because it had the potential to limit competition and create a monopoly. Upon approval, the merger would result in a combined revenue of $1.7 billion and would rank the new company among the 100 largest industrial companies in the United States.

On November 12, 1970, the Justice Department announced it would not challenge the merger despite the Antitrust Division's recommendation to the contrary. The department referred the matter to the FTC, which held concurrent authority to enforce the Clayton Act. A day later, the merger was completed. By 1976, however, the FTC ordered the company to sell several units of its Parke, Davis subsidiary that produced specified drugs. Those units producing thyroid preparations, cough remedies, cough drops and lozenges, normal albumin serum, and tetanus immune globulin would have to be sold in order to restore competition in those product lines.

Satisfied with the FTC's actions, S. Burke Giblin, chair and chief executive officer of Warner-Lambert at the time of the ruling, nevertheless faced several other challenges in the ensuing years. In 1976, Warner-Lambert disclosed figures to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) concerning illegal payments abroad, announcing that more than $2.2 million "in questionable payments" had been uncovered in 14 of the 140 countries in which Warner-Lambert conducted business.

Only months later an explosion at an American Chicle plant in Queens, New York, killed six people and injured 55. After a year of investigation, a grand jury indicted the company and four of its officials on charges of reckless manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide. The charges were based on reports that the fire department had warned the company about the explosive potential of magnesium stearate dust used as a gum-machine lubricant. Contending that the charges were "outrageous" and unwarranted, company executives appealed the case. In 1978, a state judge dismissed the charges citing "crystal clear and voluminous evidence" that the company had tried to eliminate the danger of an explosion. The following year, however, the New York State court's appellate division voted to restore the indictments. Finally, in 1980, the state's highest court once again dismissed all charges in connection with the explosion.

Another controversy involved Warner-Lambert's Benylin cough syrup product, which was made available without a prescription in 1975. In response to questions regarding the cough syrup's effectiveness, the FDA ordered the drug back on a prescription-only status, and, after seven years of deliberation, a settlement was finally reached in which the FDA approved the reinstated over-the-counter sale of the drug.

In 1978, Warner-Lambert purchased Entenmann's Bakery for $243 million in cash. By 1982, Entenmann's had become Warner-Lambert's most profitable consumer division, with sales reaching $333 million and an annual growth rate of 19 percent. However, during this time, a rumor was started that Entenmann's profits were supporting Reverend Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church. Since the source of the rumor was said to come from Westchester county in New York, Warner-Lambert took out an ad in the county newspaper denying the alleged connection. Nevertheless, the rumor continued to circulate and actually received a large amount of publicity in the Boston, Massachusetts, area. It was reported in some places that Entenmann's delivery and sales staff were being harassed, and one Rhode Island church urged a boycott of the baked goods. When sales growth began to slip, Warner-Lambert mailed a letter to 1,600 churches in New England describing Entenmann's history as a family-owned business for 80 years before it was purchased. As Entenmann's profits continued to slip, Warner-Lambert sold the bakery to General Foods for $315 million in 1982.

The late 1970s had proved financially unstable for Warner-Lambert. Profit margins were off by 40 percent in 1979, the majority of revenues came from the sale of consumer goods, and the company was considered a potential takeover candidate. One critic characterized it a "floundering giant." That year, Ward S. Hagan replaced Bobst as chairperson, while Joseph D. Williams assumed the chief executive office. Hagan and Williams then embarked on a restructuring program with the goal of revitalizing the pharmaceutical operations and trimming unprofitable and non-core businesses.

Five unprofitable subsidiaries, including American Optical and Entenmann's, were divested between 1982 and 1986, providing Warner-Lambert with capital of nearly $600 million. At the same time, such company programs as the "Total Production System" aimed to increase productivity by cutting downtime, reducing paperwork, and creating a more flexible work environment. Hagan and Williams closed or consolidated 24 plants in foreign and domestic locations, while reducing the company labor force by almost half, from 61,000 to 32,000. Research for new drugs at the Parke, Davis division was supported by a 20 percent increase in budgetary funds during 1983 to $180 million.

Despite its improved financial condition, Warner-Lambert came under criticism, particularly for its 1982 purchase of IMED Corp., a small hospital supply manufacturer. Many found Warner-Lambert's $468 million purchase, 23 times IMED's earnings, exorbitant. IMED was the market leader, with 35 percent of sales in the hospital supply field and continued annual sales growth of 50 percent. However, the company was beset with problems. IMED's executives apparently concentrated on short-term sales goals, at the expense of new product development. In fact, a management conflict between IMED's manufacturing and research and development executives caused many important employees to resign in frustration. In 1986, Warner-Lambert sold IMED and some of its affiliates to The Henley Group, Inc. for $163.5 million.

Williams, who was given the additional duties of chairperson during Warner-Lambert's turnaround period, was able to report that return on equity had increased from nine to 32 percent from 1979 to 1986, as sales shrunk through divestments and profits held fairly steady. Investing in research and development, and luring industry talent from competing companies, Williams hoped to develop and increase sales of high-margin prescription drugs, such as Lopid, a cholesterol-reducing drug that received positive publicity in the late 1980s. However, a trend among consumers toward treatment without medication, as well as swelling support for reform of the health care industry--and the attendant possibility of price controls--caused uncertainty among ethical drug producers. Business was also threatened by a late 1980s recession and discounting in the consumer goods segment.

In anticipation of these potentially adverse market forces, a new chairperson and CEO, Melvin R. Goodes, announced yet another reorganization of Warner-Lambert late in 1991. The plan called for a 2,700-person layoff, reorganization of the global management scheme, and consolidation of operations into two groups: pharmaceuticals and consumer products. Goodes also began to concentrate the company's marketing efforts on three primary geographic markets: North America, Europe, and Japan. The company invested $1.3 billion in advertising and promotion and $473 million in research and development, apparently banking on its consumer goods, which still constituted 60 percent of annual sales in 1992.

That year, Warner-Lambert became the fourth company to enter the competitive and controversial market for transdermal nicotine patches. Its prescription smoking cessation device, branded Nicotrol, was strongly promoted through direct consumer advertising, and the product enjoyed early success. However, sales quickly declined in 1993; Warner-Lambert's late entry into the segment, chronic product shortages, a lower than expected success rate, side effects, and especially reports that some users had suffered heart attacks, all led to declines in sales.

In 1993, the company became the first to win approval from the FDA for a drug that retarded the progression of Alzheimer's disease. Warner-Lambert also formed joint ventures with Glaxo Holdings plc and Wellcome plc to orchestrate the movement of the companies' drugs from prescription to over-the-counter and generic markets.

Although still known for reporting some of the industry's lowest profit margins, Warner-Lambert enjoyed steadily increasing sales and profits from 1988 through 1992. Revenue grew from $3.91 billion to $5.6 billion, and profits nearly doubled from $340 million to $644 million during that period. While the consumer goods segment held out relatively low profits, it enjoyed strong international expansion in the late 1980s and early 1990s, helping Warner-Lambert offset some of the losses associated with its ethical drugs.

Dickinson College is a private, residential liberal arts college in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.[2] Originally established as a Grammar School in 1773, Dickinson was chartered September 9, 1783, five days after the signing of the Treaty of Paris, making it the first college to be founded in the newly-recognized United States. Dickinson was founded by Benjamin Rush, a signer of the United States Declaration of Independence and named in honor of a signer of the Constitution, John Dickinson, who was later the President of Pennsylvania. Dickinson College is America's 16th oldest college.

With over 180 full-time faculty members and an enrollment of nearly 2,400 students, Dickinson is known for its curriculum and international education programs. Dickinson sponsors 12 study centers in other countries and its approach to global education has received national recognition from the American Council on Education and NAFSA: Association of International Educators.[3][4] The college was among six institutions profiled in depth by NAFSA for "Outstanding Campus Internationalization" in 2003 [5] The 42% acceptance rate for the Class of 2011 is Dickinson's lowest ever, and the College's nearly 6,000 applications put it amongst the top liberal arts colleges nationwide. In 2007 Dickinson's endowment topped $300 million, more than double its total from ten years before.[6]

Dickinson College is not to be confused with the Dickinson School of Law, which abuts the campus but has not been associated with the college since the late 19th century. The law school merged with Pennsylvania State University in 1997, and its students study at both the Carlisle and State College campuses. Dickinson is sometimes mistaken for, yet has no relation to, Fairleigh Dickinson University, a private university in the state of New Jersey.

FORMOSA: Bright Feather

Monday, Jan. 19, 1953



The big news on Formosa last week was a visiting celebrity: Dr. Hu Shih, China's most respected scholar, who was concluding his first visit to Formosa since that strategic island became the Nationalist refuge and stronghold. Scholar Hu (who has been leading the scholarly life in New York and Princeton) received a flattering and festive welcome, dined with Chiang Kai-shek and lectured to eager crowds.

His visit to Formosa was a big, bright feather in the Nationalist cap. Its importance stemmed not only from his eminence as a philosopher, poet, diplomat and educator, but from the fact that he was once regarded as outside of and above the struggle between Communists and Kuomintang. After four years (1938-42) as Chiang's ambassador in Washington, he left his post because of a tiff with the wartime Chungking regime. In 1947 he said: "Liberal is a terrible term these days, so you'd better just call me an independent." He wrote a letter to "Dear Mr. Mao" urging the Red leader to disband the Red army if and when the Communists joined the government. Now, five years later, the mainland Reds spewed out a poisonous torrent of calumny against him, and Chinese neutralists in Hong Kong and Singapore, who sigh for a nonexistent third force, sulked because Hu had ignored them.

On Formosa, Hu called for more freedom of debate and criticism in the press, quizzically quoting a newspaper article that said "only Hu Shih enjoys freedom of speech in free China." But he praised the present freedom of discussion in Formosa's Legislative Yuan (assembly), citing that the Sino-Japanese peace treaty had been passed only after Foreign Minis ter George Yeh had to put in 19 appear ances before Yuan committees.

Hu Shih compared the Nationalist struggle to regain the mainland with France's struggle to free herself of the Nazis in World War II. But he counseled patience as well as perseverance. "The deliverance of France," he said, "took place not only through the individual efforts of loyal Frenchmen . . . but because a free France had become an integral part of global strategy . . . We know that half a million [Nationalist] soldiers are not enough to retake the mainland. Our future is linked with that of the free world, which must one of these days answer the question whether it is going to leave 450 million people on the Chinese mainland to be drilled, equipped and indoctrinated by world Communism."

胡適沒有明白意識的繙譯???

《眾樹歌唱》增訂版導讀 柯慶明

   梁啟超提倡新小說,胡適提倡新文學之際,他們心目中都以西洋的近代文學為典範;他們相信其中所顯現的近代世界的生活感知,足以引領在文明上落後的中國, 至少在精神意識上,能夠更加快速的進入近現代的文明境域。但是當胡適在〈建設的文學革命論〉,主張應該:「趕緊多多的繙譯西洋的文學名著,做我們的模 範。」時,他並沒有明白意識到:如何繙譯?繙譯是採直譯?意譯?繙譯的語言風格,作品的形式、結構等等的問題。

  但對大多數的寫作者而 言,若他們透過譯作來學習,則他們的「模範」,其實並不是「西洋的文學名著」本身,他們學習的並不僅是原作的主題思維,經驗歷程,同時更是譯作呈現的語言 質地、結構形式與美感情趣所形成的整體藝術風格。即使譯者盡力求取其譯作趨近原作,譯作仍是與原作不同:不同的文化傳統,歷史經驗與語言情韻所形成的獨特 語言表現與接受體驗等等,都使得兩種語言之間必然有著無法完全跨越的鴻溝;更重要的,即使不談譯作必然是建立在對原作的特殊解讀、詮釋之上,因而未必能夠 精準或全面的掌握原作的多層、多方的意涵與素質;譯者個人的生存情境與才性學識,亦自有其積習而成的特殊語言風格,這自為原作者所不知;但卻成了譯作的讀 者所直接經驗的對象。因而,當嚴復以「信、達、雅」三者討論譯事:「信」固然是力求不誤讀、不扭曲,所以區別「繙譯」與「創作」的基本要求,但「達」、 「雅」之間,其實反映的卻是譯者對自身文字風格的斟酌與考量。

 因而新文學的「模範」其實是眾多的西洋文學的「譯作」,它本身有因襲、有 創 造,但卻都成了別人學習的典範。因而說:這些繙譯創造了新文學的作品形式與內容意識,或許亦不為過。就以作品形式而言,在諸多的嘗試之餘,小說或許採取了 「減法」,減去了章回的回目與回內呼應對仗回目的故事結構,減去了說話人的口吻與論說,以至引詩、評點等傳統舊習。詩則顯然在放棄了以中國舊詩體之「以中 詩譯西詩」的嘗試後,(少時曾見分別以五言、七言、樂府與楚騷等舊體詩繙譯Samuel Taylor Coleridge的The Rime of the Ancient Mariner的合集,此書已無法尋索,僅記得楚騷體的譯者就是胡適),採取了加法:分行、分節。漸以白話繙譯詩意,但仍力求押韻、節與節之句數一致,更 要求字數,或調整句內的音節,至少是音節數的勻整等等……這種各類音律的考量,都曾有多方嘗試,它們未必形成通用的體式;但分行、分節,語句詩意之跨行連 結,形成戲劇性的對比……則已了新詩以至現代詩的通用表現形式。.....

the foundation by General Horace W. Carpentier of the Dean Lung Chair of Chinese

蘇先生再述個最美的故事 丁龍講座 Dean Lung Lecture


.......幸虧他修了夏德教授(Frederich Hirth)的漢學(Sinology)課程,我們今天才聽到「丁龍 Dean Lung」這個名字。夏德教授是「丁龍講座」設立後的第一位「講座教授」。

丁龍是中國人,不知道他是姓丁名龍,還是姓龍名丁。他是美國將軍卡本迪(Horace W. Carpentier, 1825-1918)的僕人,丁龍勤勞誠實,深得主人信賴。在丁龍退休時,將軍給了他兩萬元美金作退休金。

丁龍將這兩萬元捐給哥倫比亞大學,成立了一個「漢學講座」,作為研究中國文化之用。卡本迪將軍知到了這件事,他把錢湊足為十萬美元,而成立了這個講座。.......

2)From Mia Anderer

在一份名为Memoirs of H. A. Giles的资料上,Dean Lung后面所附的汉字清清楚楚地写着“天龙”,这就推翻了 Dean Lung是姓+名的说法,而是一个常见的中国人的双名。米亚据此大胆推测,1905年的高尔威统计报告中Dean Ding的Ding应该是Dean Lung的姓氏,Dean Lung的中文名字很可能就是“丁天龙”。

H.A.Giles有Dean Lung的资料,是因为当时为了庆祝Dean Lung Chair of Chinese的设立,Herbert Allen Giles曾受邀于1902年3月在哥大做了一篇题为"China and the Chinese"的演讲:

The following Lectures were delivered during March, 1902, at Columbia University, in the city of New York, to inaugurate the foundation by General Horace W. Carpentier of the Dean Lung Chair of Chinese.

最近二十年胡適著述之出版 (2003中國 楊早)

最近二十年胡適著述之出版
時間:2003919 作者:楊早 來源:中華讀書報


1979年以來,胡適著作的出版大致分為幾個方面:綜合性著述、書信序跋、日記自傳、有代表性的學術著作及文學作品等。影響較大的包括以下幾種:

《胡適來往書信選》(3卷,中國社會科學院近代史研究所中華民國史研究室編,北京:中華書局,19791980),作為1979年以來最早出版的胡適著作的選本之一,該書的學術價值頗高,其中編選了胡適保存在北京寓所內的書信(19151948),附錄部分還收入相關的文獻資料和手稿譯文等。稍後有梁錫華編選的《胡適密藏書信選》(正篇、續篇,臺北:遠景出版社,1982),其書從《胡適來往書信選》中挑出部分編選而成,重新予以編排,但有刪削。《胡適遺稿及密藏書信》(42卷,耿雲志主編,合肥:黃山書社,1994),據中國社會科學院近代史研究所保留的胡適手稿影印,收入未發表過的遺稿及往來書信千餘通,史料價值極高。《胡適家書》(杜春和編,石家莊:河北人民出版社,1996),收有胡適家書近260封,分類編排。《胡適書信集》(3卷,耿雲志、歐陽哲生編,北京:北京大學出版社,1996),共收入19071962年的書信1644封,包括廣泛徵集的未刊信稿,資料完備。《胡適書評序跋集》(黃保定、季維龍選,長沙:嶽麓書社,1987),選錄各類書評性文字66篇,附錄《胡適本人著譯及編校圖書自序編目》。《論學談詩二十年——胡適楊聯往來書劄》(胡適紀念館編,臺北:聯經出版公司,1998,後由安徽教育出版社於2001年出版),為瞭解胡適學術思想提供大量資料。《不思量自難忘——胡適給韋蓮司的信》(周質平編譯,臺北:聯經出版公司,1999,後由安徽教育出版社於2001年出版),私人化視角展示出胡適的另一面。

日記中出版較早的是《胡適的日記》(2卷,中國社會科學院近代史研究所中華民國史研究室編,北京:中華書局,1985),收錄19101944年間的部分日記,據手稿整理排印,保留原貌相對完整,日記內附件省略處均有說明,具較高學術價值。《胡適留學日記》(長沙:嶽麓書社,2000),屬舊籍新刊,重版解放前商務出的胡適留學日記,收胡適留美期間的日記雜記,分17卷編排。《胡適日記全編》(曹伯言編,8卷,合肥:安徽教育出版社,2001),作為該社即將出版的《胡適全集》的先期出版物推出,該書編纂原則是忠於原稿,保持原貌,也是迄今為止收錄胡適日記最為完整的出版物。

自傳類中最有影響的是《胡適口述自傳》(唐德剛譯注,臺北:傳記文學出版社,1983,後由北京的華文出版社與上海的華東師範大學出版社分別於19891993年兩度出版),該書對瞭解胡適生平及晚年思想狀況意義重大。另有《胡適傳記作品全編》(4卷,耿雲志編,上海:東方出版中心,1999),收錄胡適的傳記類作品多種。

有代表性的學術或文藝著作的出版,最早的是《胡適哲學思想資料選》(2卷,葛懋春、李興芝編,上海:華東師範大學出版社,1981),屬內部發行,上卷選錄相關論文29篇,下卷收《胡適口述自傳》,在當時研究資料比較匱乏的情況下,其意義不容忽視。《胡適紅樓夢研究論述全編》(上海:上海古籍出版社,1988),鑒於胡適新紅學奠基人的身份,將胡適關於《紅樓夢》研究考證的文字集成一書,除專文外,還輯錄了其筆記、書信、日記中的相關文字。《胡適古典文學研究論集》(2卷,上海:上海古籍出版社,1988),收除《紅樓夢》研究之外的古典文學的相關文字。胡適在文學上的代表性作品則有《胡適詩存》(胡明編,北京:人民文學出版社,1989),其特點是除《嘗試集》外,將大量胡適的新舊體詩並收其中,並詳細注明出處及發表情況,此書1993年出有增訂版。《胡適散文選集》(易竹賢編,天津:百花文藝出版社,1990),從純文學的角度選取胡適代表性散文36篇。  綜合性著述(包括規模較大的選集文集等)在臺灣出現較早,其中《胡適作品集》(37卷,臺北:遠流出版社,1986)較為完整,此套書由胡適紀念館授權出版。在內地則有《胡適文存》(4卷,合肥:黃山書社,1996),其一、二卷根據亞東圖書館1928年版,第三卷據亞東圖書館1930年版,第四卷即《胡適論學近著》第一集,據商務印書館1935年版重新排印而成。《胡適學術文集》(8卷本,姜義華編,北京:中華書局,1998),按照胡適從事學術活動的各個方面將相關文字按照中國文學史、中國哲學史、新文學運動等八個方面分類輯集。《胡適精品集》(16卷,胡明編,北京:光明日報出版社,1998),亦系將胡適作品重新編排。《胡適文集》(12卷,歐陽哲生編,北京:北京大學出版社,1998),基本收齊胡適著作的單行本,並輯錄大量散佚文章,是目前收集胡適作品最多,規模最大的一套選集。

歐陽無畏

*譚延闓1880年1月25日1930年9月22日),幼名寶璐組庵,或作祖庵組安祖安無畏

1960/2/15 胡適致 歐陽無畏
談比得親王來訪事

歐陽無畏簡歷 -

陽無畏 (1913~1991),原籍江西興同。1930年畢業於東北馮庸大學政治系,1933年,任教青海第一師範,因地緣對佛教和藏文發生興趣,在青海組「藏 文研究會」,與友人合編《藏文字典》,但因文稿遺失而未出版。1937年於拉薩哲蚌寺(hBras-sPungs)剃度出家,法名君庇亟美。首期七年,修 習因明、般若、中觀等重要大論。後自拉薩出發,進行藏尼之旅,隨後又祕密完成大旺的調查報告。

歐陽氏共在西藏生活達十八年,離藏後即在重慶中央大學和政治學校教授藏文,並擔任訓導工,抗 戰勝利後又擔任國防部邊務研究所藏文教席。1948年再度入藏,修習顯密教法。1951年底,獲堪布告知被選為格魯派(dGe-lugs-pa)最高學位 「拉然巴格西」的候選人,但當時中共在西藏已是箭拔弩張,於是歐陽在還未進行辯經考試前,即越藏印邊境,輾轉抵達台灣。

來台灣後,1955年任「光復大陸設計委員會」的委員兼祕書,研究「中印國界」問題。1956年始,才受聘任政大邊政所(現為民族所),任藏學教席,講授藏文、西藏歷史、地理、文化等科。後多所研究所的藏文課程,皆聘請歐陽擔任教席。

自1975年退休起,歐陽在家中自設絳帳,依藏文原典,按照拉薩格魯派三大寺五部大論的教育學程,除了有系統地教授藏文外,循次第講授「印度佛教史」、「西藏佛教史」、「基礎因明」(rTags-rigs,攝類學、心類學、因類學等三學)、「宗 義」(Grub-mtha')、「般若」(Phar-phyin)、「中觀」(bBuma)、「量論」(Tshad-ma)等藏學重要論著,並不收學費, 以默默培養藏學後繼者為一生的職志。至1991年,喇嘛猶受聘法光佛研所。為「西藏佛學組」的指導教授,直至去世為止。今日台灣有能力和志業從事藏文、藏 學研究的後起之秀,多出於君庇亟美喇嘛的門下,對於引導藏傳顯宗經典的翻譯和研讀的功勞極大。

這篇是八卦


在國民黨的外交人才中,郭泰祺與顧維鉤齊名,是一位成名較早、資格很老的外交官員。  郭泰祺,字復初。 1890 年生於湖北省崇陽縣。幼年在武昌讀書,1904年考取留美公費生,就讀於賓夕法尼亞大學,專攻政治學。 1911 年獲博士學位。回國後,先後擔任北京政府副總統黎元洪的英文秘書,外交部參事,開始踏上外交舞台。第一次世界大戰結束後,郭泰祺作為中華民國代表團的專門委員,出席了巴黎和會,周旋於歐美各國外交官員中,嶄露頭角。 1917 年南下廣州,參加護法戰爭,先任廣東大元帥府參事,後任外交部次長。 1929年出任中國駐意大利公使。 1932 年擔任國民黨外交委員會委員,並被選派為中國首席代表,在上海與日本代表議訂《淞滬停戰協定》。同年9 月出任駐英國公使,1935 年改任駐英國大使。郭泰祺的外交生涯一帆風順,步步高升。抗日戰爭期間,汪精衛投靠日本,為了拼湊偽政權,汪積極拉攏中間力​​量。蔣介石頗感頭疼。最使蔣介石頭疼的是各駐外使節,而在駐外使節中,蔣介石最不放心的就數郭泰祺了。因為在國民黨內,郭泰祺與汪精衛的關係較深,雖然汪精衛投靠日本以後,竭力拉攏過郭,遭到了郭的拒絕,但是蔣介石覺得將郭泰祺繼續放任在外,終究是一張可慮的牌,於是決定將郭泰祺內調回國,委任他為國民政府外交部長。
1941 年,郭泰祺當上了外交部長,官升一級,他全當是蔣介石對自己拒絕汪精衛拉攏的嘉獎,每每得意忘形。上任伊始,他嫌外交部長的官邸太寒酸,有失堂堂大國外長的身份,大筆一揮,一下子拿出30 萬,購置了一處新官邸。外交部長的生活熱鬧而又單調,整日是交際應酬,迎來送往,前呼後擁,看起來很威風。可一到夜深人靜,人去樓空之時,便感寂寞難耐。他急欲為他的新官邸物色一位新主人,恰逢此時,他生病住進了醫院。
醫院位於重慶市城郊區交界的地方,環境優美,醫療條件及醫療水平均為當時重慶第一流的。雖然國難當頭,可是在遠離前線的重慶山城,仍能找到一個令人流連的世外桃源。堂堂的國府外交部長住進了醫院,醫院上下鬧騰起來。院長親自跑前跑後張羅,指派最好的醫生,騰出最好的病房。院長是個精明人,不僅精於醫道,更懂得對郭泰祺這樣的達官貴人來說,藥物治療遠不如精神治療有效,他特別選派了本院一名特別漂亮的女看護,專門侍候郭外長。
女看護聽說叫她專門侍候國府的外交部長,心情頗為激動。她絲毫不敢怠慢,每日親侍湯藥,問寒噓暖。整日衣不解帶,不離郭外長左右。
郭泰祺本來就沒有多大毛病,住進醫院後,見有如此年輕貌美的女看護陪伴左右,病早就好了大半。他原想住幾日,待病稍見好轉就出院回官邸調養,誰知越住越不想出院,越住益覺精神十分愉快。郭泰祺當年雖然已是50出頭的年齡,但風流不讓少年,與女孩子戲謔調笑是他的拿手好戲。加上他滿肚子的異國見聞,幾番花言巧語,竟使涉世不久的女看護對他佩服得五體投地。女看護當年20 剛出頭,亭亭玉立,媚嫵動人。她外表天真浪漫,內裡卻頗有心計。在醫院裡,打她主意的人不少,對男人的心思她有一種天生的識別能力。雖然她不懂什麼外交辭令,但對郭外長花言巧語背後的心思早就揣摩得一清二楚。她想,像她這樣的條件,不愁找不到翁婿。可是,像郭泰祺這樣的顯赫人物,今生今世難遇第二個。雖然郭泰祺比她大近30 歲,但是愛情是不受年齡限制的。她一想到有朝一日當上外交部長的夫人,出入官場、周遊世界、風光一世的生活,內心不禁怦然而動。她決心委身於郭外長,將他緊緊抓住不放。
一個有心,一個有意,郭外長與女看護很快打得火熱。郭外長住的單間病房,一般人不得進入,唯有女看護可以直進直出。兩個情人利用病房這個方便場所,幾乎整日廝守在一起,一個是情場老手,一個是有心投靠,談到情熱處,難免有些親熱舉動。
  世間沒有不透風的牆。外交部長與女看護在醫院調情的消息,不知怎麼被外界知道了,新聞界聞知,注意力一下子集中到醫院來。郭泰祺怕新聞界大做文章,匆匆忙忙溜出了醫院。出院前,他與女看護山盟海誓,至少在口頭上達成了白頭偕老的君子協定。
出院後,郭外長與女看護頻頻約會,花前月下處處留下他們的足跡。本來私下約會談情說愛是很平常的事,在當時社會,外交部長找一個醫院女看護調調情也不值得大驚小怪。可是,有一次郭外長與女看護野外約會,偏偏遇上了一位少見多怪的人,鬧得滿城風雨。事情據說是這樣的:有一天夜裡,重慶的天氣少有的好,月明星高。月色給山城罩上了一層淡淡的銀光,寒森森的。山城實行燈火管制,整個山城死一般沉寂。這天晚上,郭泰祺的興致很高。他早早約了那位漂亮的女看護外出幽會。兩人悄無聲息地來到遠離市中心的黃角椏。黃角椏是重慶市的一處人跡罕至的風景區。這地方遠離馬路,樹深林密,環境極為幽靜,是情人聚會的理想場所。此時繁星在天,月光如洗,四顧無人,萬籟俱寂,真可謂天賜的良辰美景。郭外長挽著女看護來到一棵樹下,他早已春心萌動,迫不及待地把心愛的美人兒擁人自己懷中,肆無忌憚的在那女看護的粉臉上、玉頸上狂亂地吻起來。平日里那種大人先生的斯文和外交官的紳士風度早已不知跑到哪裡去了。一陣狂吻之後,雄心勃勃的郭外長似不解恨,又用他那喘著粗氣的大嘴,緊緊地貼在女看護豐潤的雙唇上,作一個熱烈的長吻,直吻得女看護氣都喘不過來。此時此到,他們陶醉在甜蜜的愛河裡,周圍的一切都不存在了。正在他們難分難解之際,一個白髮老頭彷彿從天而降似的突然出現在黃角椏。世間的巧台之事很多,誰也無法預料。所謂來者不善,善者不來,突然出現的白髮老頭不是等閒之輩,他是國民黨的元勳、國民政府考試院院長戴季陶。
戴季陶與蔣介石是拜把兄弟,曾任國民黨中央宣傳部長、黃埔軍校政治部主任、中山大學校長。他信奉佛教,反對男女之間的親暱之舉。考試院院長雖然官職顯要,卻是個閑職。平日忙一陣、閒一陣,忙時少而閒時多。國民政府偏安重慶以後,國難當頭,戰事頻仍,考試院長成了名副其實的閑職了。不知是戴院長閒來無事,還是人老了睡不著覺的緣故,這一天晚上,這個老夫子也到黃角椏來了。他悠哉游哉地踱著方步,散步於林間。猛然間,他發現前面不遠處有一團黑影,不覺心中一驚,定睛看去,原來是一對戀人抱在一起。戴老夫子不看便罷,一看兩人旁若無人、忸怩作態的樣子,頓時來了氣。一路來時的好興致被沖得無踪無影,他氣哼哼地又不好發作,只能自認霉氣。正當他掉頭要往回走時,那對戀人中的男子抬起頭來,戴老夫子見了馬上一愣,心裡叫道,此人好面熟!他顧不得什麼院長的體面,藉著月光透過樹林仔細窺視。待他仔細辨認清楚那男子是郭泰祺時,氣得差點罵出聲來:“好哇,原來是你郭復初這個風流胚子,堂堂的國府外交部長竟敢在野外與人作合,簡直有失體統,有辱黨國。”戴季陶急忙轉身回頭,氣呼呼地跑回去向蔣介石報告。對戴季陶的“多管閒事”,據說當時有人大​​加揶揄,說他跑去向蔣介石匯報時,跌跌撞撞,上氣不接下氣,如同體力下支的運動員在馬拉松賽跑中一樣。
蔣介石一向標榜自己是“新生活運動”的倡導者和帶頭人,但他又處處堅持封建的舊禮教。對接吻一類的西方洋玩藝兒也看不慣。據說,戴季陶向他報告了郭泰祺在野外與女人有“猥褻行為”一事後,蔣介石立即下了一道手諭,免去了郭泰祺的外交部長一職。於是,郭泰祺一吻丟官的風流軼事,風傳一時。
當然,郭泰祺被蔣介石免去國民政府外交部長不會僅是這一個原因。他被免去外長職務的另一個原因,也是主要的原因,是他當了外交部長後,忘乎所以,外交上的很多事情,他不等蔣介石核准就徑自去處理了。尤其是他當了外交部長以後,很少向那位一向對外交事務懷有濃厚興趣的宋美齡請安求教,以至於得罪了這位總統夫人,更得罪了蔣介石。郭泰祺與女看護的桃色事件,不過是促使他早日被免職的一個契機。
據《大公報》載,當郭泰祺的那位漂亮女看護在重慶某醫院分娩的時候,國民黨中央執行委員會正在開會。會上有人公開指責郭泰祺的桃色事件,郭泰祺當時一言未發,臉漲得通紅,下不了台,最後終被解職。 《大公報》還把郭泰祺的桃色案同孔祥熙用飛機運狗一事聯繫起來,作為國民黨腐敗的例證,寫進社會評論中。
郭泰祺被免去外交部長以後,為了安慰他,蔣介石又給了他一個最高國防會議外交委員會主席的空名。抗日戰爭勝利以後,他才再度復出,出任聯合國安全理事會首任中國代表。 1952 年2 月29 日,郭泰祺在美國病逝,終年62 歲
