波兰苏格拉底之死

纽约——

你可能未曾耳闻的最重要人物中的一位在上周五辞世。当我们埋首于那些明日就将被遗忘的繁杂事务中时,我们往往较少去关注致力于求解永恒问题的人物,即那些试图将我们的视线转向更高层面的哲学家、道德家与贤者。然而从长远看,正是后者发挥着最重要的影响,在其他的当务之急转瞬即逝之后,他们的重要性却经久不衰。这些先生和女士们改变了他们身边的世界,即便其他人在许久之后方才对此有所察觉。

莱谢克·柯拉柯夫斯基便是其中之一,他是一位全球知名的哲学家,在牛津、耶鲁和芝加哥等优秀学府担任教授,并为其全世界的同行们所敬仰。他的著作涉及斯宾诺莎、十七世纪荷兰的神学争论以及其他深奥的主题。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
