香港中文大學哲學系教職員、校友及同學支持段崇智校長聲明

茲就2019年10月18日香港中文大學校長段崇智教授發予中大同學、同事、校友之公開信,及公開信發出後段崇智校長所受到之無理攻擊,我們以聯署方式發佈聲明如下:

 

  1. 本系教職員曾於2019年6月15日發表「嚴正譴責香港政府及警察武力鎮壓和平示威」聲明,針對6月12日香港警察於金鐘以殘暴手段和過分武力對待市民,及特首林鄭月娥就此事之回應。* 之後發生了七二一元朗、八三一太子港鐵站等事件及種種警暴行為,警察之信譽已蕩然無存;政府又竟對警暴不予追究、甚至包庇,不惜公然破壞法治。我們的譴責立場不變,自不待言。

 

  1. 對於段校長於公開信中提出之種種保護同學措施,我們完全贊同,亦支持其適切運用大學之公信力與影響力,為受影響同學爭取最公平處理之用心。適值五四運動一百週年,我們喜見蔡元培先生之典範尚存於人間。

 

  1. 我們反對暴力,但完全理解示威者之激憤。政府掌握強大公權與武力,故必須展現最大之寬容,方可疏導民憤及重新凝聚社會。就此,我們要求特區政府正視社會共識,成立獨立調查委員會,刻不容緩。

 

  1. 對於段校長發出公開信後,有說其有辱香港中文大學「博文約禮」校訓,我們特此嚴正反駁。段校長愛護學生,痛惜其受警暴傷害,即《禮記》所謂「情深而文明」。至如孟子曰:「男女授受不親,禮也。」惟嫂溺則須援之以手,「嫂溺不援,是豺狼也。」今中大同學溺於警暴,段校長援之以手、援之以道,此中之仁且智,乃「約禮」之真正依歸。情深與仁且智,實為校訓「博文約禮」得以成立之道德基礎,無情而不仁不智者固不識也。

 

  1. 最後,我們呼籲所有中大同學、同事、校友,團結一致支持段崇智校長據理為同學力爭公道,讓香港中文大學賴以挺立的「仁且智」精神,在時代逆流下茁壯長存。我們將密切注意事態發展,適時採取行動以履行讀書人與中大人之職分。

Strongly Condemn the Hong Kong SAR Government and the Police for Suppressing Peaceful Demonstration with Excessive Force

Strongly Condemn the Hong Kong SAR Government and the Police for Suppressing Peaceful Demonstration with Excessive Force

 

This is a joint statement in response to the police’s brutality and unreasonable use of force on demonstrators in Admiralty on 12 June 2019, and to the subsequent statement made by the Chief Executive, Ms. Carrie Lam.

 

  1. The vast majority of demonstrators on the day were exercising their right of demonstration in a peaceful and reasonable manner. However, Carrie Lam’s Government and the police have identified the demonstration as a so-called “riot.” The police fired tear gas canisters, rubber bullets, and beanbag shots indiscriminately, directly, and often without prior warning at a large number of young students, citizens in general, and even journalists. The sternness and cruelty of its suppression is unprecedented. We condemn in the strongest terms these excessively violent and cold-blooded acts committed by the HKSAR Government and the police.
  2. In her TV interview, Carrie Lam likened the relationship between government and citizen to that of mother and son. We are indignant about this outrageous analogy. A politician—here, a head of a locality—has compared herself to being a parent of her citizens, and thus bestowed herself with highest honour and respect. Yet, aside from this self-image being in stark contrast to a modern understanding of political ethics, if Carrie Lam were indeed a parent to the citizens of Hong Kong, how could she sanction the ruthless suppression of her children? Her brazen callousness has been appalling.
  3. During this extraordinary period, students have been brave in pursuing justice. We deeply admire their selfless acts, and hope that they will pay attention to personal safety.

Obituary of Prof. Fok Tou-hui

The Department of Philosophy mourns the passing of Mr. Fok Tou-hui, retired professor of the Department, on 6 June 2018 in Beijing at the age of 78. We offer our deep condolences to his family.

Mr. Fok was born in Hainan in 1940. He came to Hong Kong in 1957. Since 1964 he was under the tutelage of Mr. Tang Junyi and graduated from New Asia Institute of Advanced Chinese Studies two years later. He then went to Otani University, Kyoto in 1969 to pursue his doctoral studies. He began his 27 years of service at the Department in 1972, teaching Chinese philosophy, Buddhism, and Indian philosophy. In 1982 he was co-appointed by New Asia Institute of Advanced Chinese Studies as a researcher. As the founder of the Dharmasthiti Group, Mr. Fok was acclaimed for his deep devotion to promoting Confucian studies, life education and xingqing education. In 2009, Mr. Fok and the Dharmasthiti Group participated in the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Department and the centenary of Mr. Tang Junyi by co-organizing the international conference “New Directions in Chinese Philosophy” and the exhibition “Guardian of the Spiritual Value of Chinese Culture: Tang Chun-I Centenary Exhibition”. Mr. Fok will be dearly remembered by all of us as an exemplary teacher and a keen supporter of our Department.

May he rest in peace.
