內容簡介


如果有一天,人類可以獲得無限壽命,並隨時都能在太空旅行與其他星球上生活,會是什麼光景呢?

本書共含91個章節,每篇的長度雖短,但字裡行間均充滿圓滑睿智的深厚哲學。本書是關於一位在800年後的太空中旅行的王子,以及他對於出生地-地球在二十世紀時的回憶。書中描述了各式各樣的片段,例如生活樣貌、文化以及食物、政治、宗教、感情等,均有諸多描述,而這些文字同時也是作者對於他自身家庭以及生活回憶的投射。而同時文中也有許多對於未來生活的描述,尤其對科技進步和太空中其他生物等有所著墨,以及人類在擁有無限壽命之後,對自身存在的意義進行深刻反思。


This novel consists ninety-one chapters. The chapters are short, but the dialogues between the characters are meant to be philosophical.
The story is about a prince traveling in the space eight hundred years from now, and his memory of growing up and living on earth in the twentieth century. The narrative addresses on different issues related to life and culture, many perspectives such as art, food, politics, religion and love are touched on. The description on food is extensive, and it reflects on the author’s life and family manners.

Although the conversations between the protagonist and other characters on different subjects are fascinating on how the technology is advanced and the encounter of extra-terrestrials in the future life in the space, but it is more important to sense the big question of how human face themselves and how to look for the meaning of existence in unlimited time and space if ever given.

■作者簡介

Dahong Wang
Dahong Wang was born in Beijing on July 6, 1918, and was raised in Shanghai and Suzhou. His father was Wang Chong-huei, an important figure internationally in the legal profession. After graduating from Jinghai Elementary School, he attended Jinling High School in Nanjing and Suzhou Middle School. In 1930, Dahong followed his father to Hague where his father was stationed, and entered La Châtaigneraie School in Geneva. He was admitted in the University of Cambridge in 1936 where his first major was mechanical engineering, but he changed to study architecture later. After Cambridge, he went to the United States, and earned his architecture master from Harvard University.

With education received from Cambridge and Harvard, Dahong Wang was the first in Taiwan to receive a complete modern Western architecture education. During his Harvard years, Dahong Wang was taught by Modernist masters Walter Gropius (who headed Bauhaus School previously) and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and in the same class with some grand names of contemporary architects including I. M. Pei and Philip Johnson.
