关于现实世界中经济增长速度不等的一个解释框架 by Yazhe Jin
Price: Free! Words: 730. Language: Chinese (simplified). Published: May 15, 2018. Categories: Essay » Sociology
最近几个世纪人类经济总量经历了大幅增长。人类经济增长的一个重要因素是“知识”（更准确的说是“人类所发现的知识”）的增长。“知识”影响了经济增长，但“知识”并不是独立存在的，而是需要“人”去掌握/发现知识后再去参与经济过程，并最终得到经济结果。换句话说，“人”掌握“知识”程度的不同会造成经济结果的不同。 而这种对于“知识”不同态度的原因就需要追溯的“人”生命中最基本一些问题。例如“我是谁？”，“我来自何处？”，“我生命的目的是什么？”…… 有人到“神赐予人的知识”（宗教）中去寻求答案（不同宗教之间又有着显著的区别）；有人到科学（“人类所发现的知识”）中寻找答案；也有人到科学和哲学（也是“人类所发现的知识”）中寻找答案。而这些不同的取向导致现实中“人”对“人所发现的知识”的态度和欲望的不同。这种不同的态度部分导致了不同的经济增长速度。
