作者:Timo Schmitz (德国) 韩美科学家Knox Kwon 写了:“金亨稷的志愿思想在国内外几乎没有得到深入研究。 他的思想对于理解韩国近代史具有重要意义。然而,关于他的论文或小册子很少,也许是因为对他缺乏兴趣。 更糟糕的是,在韩国出版的一些历史书籍,如果有的话,引用史料和分析事实的显然缺乏客观性。我认为有必要依靠客观史料,认为对金亨稷的正确历史评价有助于更好地了解韩国的历史和身份。”(Kwon, 2013年: “Kim Hyong Jik’s idea of ‘Jiwon’ has barely been studied in depth both at home and abroad. His idea is of great importance in understanding the modern history of Korea. Nevertheless, there have been few papers or pamphlets on it, perhaps for lack of interest inContinue reading “志愿:韩朝两国的共同机会”

[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “Reality” (2013)

The anise grows under the nebo, The trees behind her, a huge crowd, The grass is soft and wet, the background just so loud. A cat is quarreling with a mouse, The wolf is quarreling with the geese, A sudden scream – release. And the cat stops quarelling, And the wolf is quiet too, AndContinue reading “[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “Reality” (2013)”

[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “Go away” (2013)

My heart just wants to cry, When I miss you too much, my July. I let you go – I have to admit, My lovely little heart, you have hit, Nine months I dedicated to you. I had a lovely winter, the autumn was so sad. Spring arrived and my interest came back, actually itContinue reading “[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “Go away” (2013)”

[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “Passing by” (2013)

One step, and then another one, Very softly, as if you are not on the run, And moving forward, slowly but sure, Fleeing the past and fleeing the future. In this small space you walk around, The legs so pretty, no man won’t like, And you move forward, start to hike, Nothing seems to beContinue reading “[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “Passing by” (2013)”

Daphnis et Chloé de Longus 1,17-1,21

Traduit par Timo Schmitz, basé sur la traduction de la société athénienne de 1896 Chloé ne pouvait plus attendre : ravie de tant d’éloges et désireuse depuis longtemps d’embrasser Daphnis, elle se leva et l’embrassa, simplement et naïvement, mais pourtant son baiser avait le pouvoir d’enflammer son cœur. Dorcon, profondément agacé, s’enfuit pour réfléchir à unContinue reading “Daphnis et Chloé de Longus 1,17-1,21”

Xénophon : Helléniques, II 3,17. (Traduction Timo Schmitz)

ἐπεὶ δέ, ἀποθνῃσκόντων πολλῶν καὶ ἀδίκως, πολλοὶ δῆλοι ἦσαν συνιστάμενοί τε καὶ θαυμάζοντες τί ἔσοιτο ἡ πολιτεία, πάλιν ἔλεγεν ὁ Θηραμένης ὅτι εἰ μή τις κοινωνοὺς ἱκανοὺς λήψοιτο τῶν πραγμάτων, ἀδύνατον ἔσοιτο τὴν ὀλιγαρχίαν διαμένειν. Mais quand, à cause du grand nombre qui fut continuellement et injustement mis à mort, il était évident que beaucoupContinue reading “Xénophon : Helléniques, II 3,17. (Traduction Timo Schmitz)”

Aristotle’s dilemma: the essence within the thing which is

Though every object has a share with the idea, the perfect and flawless form which exists for itself, the object has no self-nature, because the share with the idea only makes the nature graspable, but is not the nature of the thing itself. If the chair had a self-nature, then the chair would already beContinue reading “Aristotle’s dilemma: the essence within the thing which is”

Why the spiritual dimension matters more than the confession to a particular denomination

Until today, there is the dispute of what God has to be like: a personal God or an impersonal force. I made the attributes of God clear already, but yet I did not answer whether God is a good listener or just a passive necessity. And honestly, how could I answer this? How could anyoneContinue reading “Why the spiritual dimension matters more than the confession to a particular denomination”
