趙雄健 Hsiung-Chien Chao

兼任講師 Adjunct Instructor 國立臺灣師範大學博士候選人 PhD Candidate, National Taiwan Normal University Email: 學術寫作向來令人望之卻步甚至聞風喪膽的主要原因,可能是其強調理性思考與科學辯證的特性。所以,乍聽之下好似既枯燥乏味又冷酷無情;然而事實恐怕並非如此,因為它從來不屬於一門虛無飄渺、遙不可及的專業知識。我認為: 有時候寫論文就像單人的背包旅行。偶爾難免寂寞孤獨,但路途上超乎想像的各式風景會帶來純粹的喜悅和豐厚的成就感。亦如同跳舞一樣,身體與腳步自然隨著旋律、節奏流轉變化,卻永遠無法預知下一小節將遇見什麼挑戰。 有時候寫論文應該像偵探調查罪案般,需要時刻提高警覺、仔細觀察以及蒐集證據方能確定兇手身份;同時,更要似辯護律師努力捍衛被告,必須依照法條邏輯鋪陳論點、詳述理由,最後再交由法官判決優劣勝敗。 整體而言,學術寫作其實是一種對話的過程。不僅要與自己交流,也會跟千萬個他者互動。其中不斷來回擺盪、迴環往復,終極目標即在找尋且建構個人真正的面貌。 各位同學,暫且擱置你的疑慮吧!提起筆、拿起書,讓我們一起享受探索世界的樂趣!

Writing, she believes, is an intimate dialogue between the writer and herself. “I write […]
