亨廷顿(Huntington)教授的论文使我深受启发。他认为,在一个多元化社会里,不同意见是不可避免的。关键在于怎样正确对待不同意见,使之发挥建设性、而非破坏性的作用。他还说,在一个多元化社会里,我们必须注重人际关系,强调合作,多从他人视角考虑问题。如果某些群体自视高人一等,不尊重其他种族或宗教,那么整个社会有可能陷入瘫痪。

我相信,要是我们把上述想法付诸实践,那我们就有可能创造出一种新的文明。Professor Huntington's paper greatly inspired me.According to him,in a plural/pluralistic society,there will inevitably be different opinions.The key is to deal with them in such a way that they can play a constructive rather than destructive role. He argues that in a plural society we must attach importance to interpersonal relationships,cooperation,and looking at issues from the perspective of other people.If some groups regard themselves as superior and treat other ethnic groups or religions with disrespect,the whole society may be paralysed.

就我来说,如果要雇个职员我肯定不会单凭他的长相就作出决定。外表往往是靠不住的。比如说吧,要是你凭外表去判断诸如毛姆笔下的爱德华·海德·伯顿这样的人,你就错了。从外表和举止来看,伯顿好像是个浑然一体的人。他个子很小,满头白发,有着一双温和、蔚蓝的眼睛。他文雅坦率,和蔼可亲,许多人都说他是个世上最令人尊敬的人。然而,他对需要他帮助的朋友却很残忍。他侮辱和愚弄山穷水尽的伦尼,让他去做那样的蠢事。更让人吃惊的是,他对伦尼的死全然冷漠无情。毫无疑问,他是个铁石心肠的家伙。

For my own part,I should certainly hesitate to hire a clerk on his face/appearance alone.Appearances are all too often deceptive.For instance,you might well commit an error in judgement if you went by appearance only with people like Edward Hyde Burton,the character created by Maugham.As far as appearance and manners were concerned,Burton seemed a man all of a piece.He was a tiny little fellow with white hair and mild blue eyes.Kind,gentle and candid,he was described by many as one of the most respectable people on earth.Nevertheless,he turned out to be cruel to a friend in need of his help.He insulted and fooled Turner who was down and out and made him commit himself to an insane venture.What was still more surprising was that he was completely indifferent to Turner's death.Without doubt,Burton was a man with a heart of stone
