《台灣史的結構》進鄉團及公聽會

The tour and public hearing of "The Structure of Taiwanese Histories" 

我的三叔公是乩童,他告訴我三個故事及一個他在處理靈界事務的方法:「借名」(tsioh-miâ)。在這種方法中,名字會決定一個靈是正是邪,我們也可以理解為在這樣的系統中,階級就是建立在「名」之上,「借名」因此提供了一條面對該位階關係的逃逸路徑。

​我用這種方法來解釋複數的台灣史。

My granduncle is a spirit medium. He told me three stories and a methodology, 借名 (tsioh-miâ), which means "borrowing name" or "in the name of". In the spirit world, names determines whether one spirit is evil or god, which means class structure also built upon names. The methodology 借名 (tsioh-miâ) then provides a escape route under this rule.

 

I used this methodology to explain Taiwanese histories.
