近代中國保守思想家中至少可以區分成兩類,第一類是本能地反對任何改變現狀的思想,第二類是回到一個重要的思想基盤(如宋明理學、大乘佛學)上戰鬥。在這次演講中,我想討論第二類思想家,以宋育仁(1859-1931)、熊十力(1885-1968)、唐文治(1865-1954)、劉咸炘(1896-1932)、錢穆(1895-1990)等人為例,討論一個思想史上的問題:當晚清以來的新派一直在變的時候,反對或批評他們的人,其實也一直在變換他們的言論,同時也變換他們對傳統的解釋,以便對應挑戰。
此外,我在比較仔細地審視他們的思路之後,認為他們不只是「回到本來」的樣子,而是有一個微妙的新創過程。譬如他們有時候會用「提高一格法」,把儒家思想,尤其是宋明理學,作一種新的調整、詮釋。借用卡夫卡的話:「當你凝視深淵時,深淵也在凝視你」。
