內容簡介

國際知名哲學家Susan Neiman重新審思成長的意義
逝去的青春是否值得盼顧,活得燦爛與自由才是全新人生的開始

現今社會總是對於「青春」有無比執著,為什麼變老就等於擁有更多責任和放棄夢想?哲學作家Susan Neiman對於人自然的老化與成長提出不一樣的意見。她認為「思想啟蒙」與「行為成熟」才是人生最美好的階段,人到中年才能真正體會生命。她挑戰現今社會認為永保青春的病態現象,並以康德(Kent)、盧梭(Rousseau)及西蒙‧波娃(Simone de Beauvoir)等哲學家的理念舉證成熟的美好。Neiman指出人在嬰兒期完全受制於成人;青春期盼求獨立;只有到了中年時期,人們才開始擁有思想與行為上的自由,中年是第二個美好童年的開始。這是一部充滿智慧精髓的作品,探討成熟的價值,顛覆傳統思維。或許人生唯有少數人能達到真正的思想成熟,但成熟的好處與快樂絕對值得努力追求。 

In Why Grow Up, the latest volume in the Philosophy in Transit series, world-renowned philosopher Susan Neiman looks at growing up as an ideal with urgent relevance today

Becoming an adult today can seem a grim prospect. As you grow up, you are told to renounce most of the hopes and dreams of your youth, and resign yourself to a life that will be a pale dilution of the adventurous, important and enjoyable life you once expected. But who wants to do any of that? No wonder we live in a culture of rampant immaturity, argues internationally-renowned philosopher Susan Neiman, when maturity looks so boring.

In Why Grow Up, Neiman explores the forces that are arrayed against maturity, and shows how philosophy can help us want to grow up. Travel, both literally and as a metaphor, has been seen as a crucial step to coming of age by thinkers as diverse as Kant, Rousseau, Hume and Simone de Beauvoir. Neiman discusses childhood, adolescence, sex, and culture, and asks how the idea of travel can help us build a model of maturity that makes growing up a good option and leaves space in our culture for grown-ups. Refuting the widespread belief that the best time of your life is the decade between sixteen and twenty-six, she argues that being grown-up is itself an ideal: one that is rarely achieved in its entirety, but all the more worth striving for.
