dc.description.abstract佛斯特的作品雖然經常被視為充滿溫柔敦厚的人文主義精神,然而貫穿其幾篇重要作品的共通主題「聯繫」,事實上充滿了搖擺不定的辯證性,而本篇論文主旨便架構在此共通的「聯繫」主題之上,探討佛斯特的小說《霍華園》與《印度之旅》中的諸多倫理問題。本論文第一章旨在探討《霍華園》一書中以施勒格爾姐妹為代表的自由派中產知識分子,在面對上層與下層社會階級時展現的相左態度,正好說明了中產階級本質上的矛盾性。本章接著探討佛斯特由自由主義而衍生出的罪惡感如何促使他在小說中一再質疑敘事語言與再現系統。第二章藉由德希達的「待客」思想探討小說人物與他者(階級和種族他者)交流的矛盾與困境,也藉此探問真正的友誼交流是否可能? 亦或友誼依然只是被結構在經濟與權力關係之中? 本章更進一步藉由儂曦對於「解構的共通體」思想解讀佛斯特理想中個人與群體的關係,以及透過小說的偶遇情境,進一步與儂曦的邊界經驗展開對話。第三章藉由分析《印度之旅》以及佛斯特所建構的「比政治更為寬廣」的指向,來探討「撤出」政治群體的可能性,並藉由諸多思想家對於倫理選擇與自由的論述,進一步探問透過個體的倫理選擇是否可能撤出政治群體,以及其是否可能是某個朝向自由的倫理時刻?zh_TW
dc.description.abstractE. M. Forster is often called a humanistic writer whose works are filled with sympathy toward human relationship. However, his motto “only connect” does not merely express a humanistic view: it ushers us into a dialectical space of connection and disconnection. Focusing on the theme of (dis)connection, this thesis is a study of the ethics in Howards End and A Passage to India. The first chapter examines how the Schlegel sisters, as representatives of the intellectual and liberal middle class, are divided in their class identification and how the opposition of their identification reveals the internal dilemma of the middle class. In this chapter, Forster's sense of guilt inherited from the liberal tradition is also discussed in relation to his highly reserved attitude toward his own narrative voice. Based on a discussion of Jacques Derrida's concept of “hospitality,” the second chapter investigates the dilemma involved in the efforts to connect with one's social or racial other. Also dealt with in this chapter is the problem of friendship and its relationship with power structure and economic interests. Furthermore, based on a discussion of Jean-Luc Nancy's concept of the “inoperative community” and the “limit experience,” Forster's vision of an ideal relationship between individual and community and the chance encounters that characterize his works will be reinterpreted. In the final chapter, A Passage to India is reread from the perspective of what Forster says about the book: “something wider than politics.” This perspective leads us to reexamine the possibility for an individual to “retreat” from the political collectivity. Further explored in this chapter is the possibility for a personal freedom to come into existence through an ethical decision.en_US
