"Being singular plural" in chi's (the great-flowing River)

研究成果: 雜誌貢獻期刊論文同行評審


In his article "'Being Singular Plural' in Chi's (The Great-Flowing River)" Tsu-Chung Su explores the way Pang-yuan Chi organizes her life stories in her 2009 autobiography. Born in Mainland China, Chi is a renowned Taiwanese editor, scholar, and writer who started her autobiographical novel at age 81. In her text Chi describes life stories in a war-torn era, features her migration from the north to the south (1930 to 1950), her experiences in the Second Sino-Japanese War (1937-1945) and the Chinese Civil War (1927-1950) culminating in her successful academic career in Taiwan (1950-). Chi's life stories are infiltrated with patterns of what Jean-Luc Nancy terms "being singular plural." Su employs Nancy's concept in her life writing to define a co-existential ontology of life and a state of being with all its attributes of singularity and plurality.
