君子該有的情感表現

以前只知道儒家對君子的表現有既定的規範,沒想到原來阿里士多德也有類似的教導:

Aristotle’s description of the temperate person for a standard for what is constructive emotional behaviour:

Our emotions must be in the right amount, proportional to the event that called them forth; they must be expressed at the right time, in a way that is appropriate to the emotional trigger and the circumstances in which it occured; and they must be expressed in the right way, in a way that does no harm. (P. 53)

Ekman, Paul. Emotions Revealed: Recognizing Faces and Feelings to Improve Communication and Emotional Life. new york: Owl Books, 2004.

簡單點說,就是情感表達要適量 ,適時和適當。

牟宗三反覆強謂,哲學的本義為實踐的智慧學,這可算是一項小證據了。
