在学校图书馆借来,读了不到十页,大家自己读读下面几段中文,会让你怀疑人生。


P3

我希望它们能容易地帮助我的感激之心,如同它们使我确信对阁下重大和增长中的义务那样。我确信,如果我不是(极其)敏锐地感受那些恩惠,我写这部《论认识》不会有任何和不抓住这个机会向世人证明,我是阁下多么忠顺的仆人。

I wish they could as easily assist my gratitude, as they convince me of the great and growing engagements it has to your lordship. This I am sure, I should write of the Understanding without having any, if I were not extremely sensible of them, and did not lay hold on this opportunity to testify to the world how much I am obliged to be, and how much I am,

MY LORD,

Your Lordship’s most humble and most obedient servant,

JOHN LOCKE


P6如果我故意使它带有错误,因此易于使最明智,最好的读者厌恶,我并非不知道在这里我是多么没考虑我的名誉,不过那些知道懒散是易于用任何口实使自己满意的人们,会原谅我,如果我的懒散占了上风,我想在那里我会有一个很好的口实

I am not ignorant how little I herein consult my own reputation, when I knowingly let it go with a fault, so apt to disgust the most judicious, who are always the nicest readers. But they who know sloth is apt to content itself with any excuse, will pardon me if mine has prevailed on me, where I think I have a very good one.

P6因为我在辩解中不会宣布,具有不同方面的同一意念,会便于或必然证实或表明同意谈论的若干不同部分和因此它在这书中的许多部分已经发生:但是由于拒绝了这一点,我坦白承认,我有时在同一论证中停留过久,而且用不同的途径,不同的设计来表达。

I will not therefore allege in my defence, that the same notion, having different respects, may be convenient or necessary to prove or illustrate several parts of the same discourse, and that so it has happened in many parts of this: but waiving that, I shall frankly avow that I have sometimes dwelt long upon the same argument, and expressed it different ways, with a quite different design.


P7我相信很少人看不到自己或别人,以所建议的一种方式来表达是十分含糊,而以另一种方式来表达则十分清楚和明白:虽然心灵在事后会觉得它们在用语上只有很少的区别,而且会奇怪为什么一种表达方式会不如另一种那样被人理解。

There are few, I believe, who have not observed in themselves or others, that what in one way of proposing was very obscure, another way of expressing it has made very clear and intelligible; though afterwards the mind found little difference in the phrases, and wondered why one failed to be understood more than the other.


不打算往下看了。。。page 10以后,会有什么变化吗?
