海德格尔说向死而生。

孔子说未知生焉知死。

曹雪芹说古今将相在何方,荒冢一堆草没了。

佛说生死即涅槃。

医生说有一种病叫“死亡恐惧症”。

暴徒说我对生命绝望所以就去报复社会。

自杀者说我用死亡来寻求对生命的解脱。

殉道者说我用死亡追求真理。

……

一千个人就有一千种对死亡的态度,你自己或者你身边的人都有哪些态度呢?你认为有没有一种态度是最理想化的?我们是否都应该以此为目标?有人说应该把每一天当作生命的最后一天去过,你认为可以做到吗?怎样做到?

反观我们的感知视角,如何开辟一条路径,把抽象之理,他人的精神世界和个人的特殊情理切实的结合起来,汲取养料,从而丰富、加深我们自己的感知。
