大学生必读的十本书

作者:贾洵

一只杯子,只有倒净里面的浊水,才能再注琼浆。读这十本书之前,最好先扔掉那些贴着励志与心灵鸡汤标签的垃圾,尤其不要被那些伪君子老好人的口水给蒙蔽了。言归正传,以下十本书,你不妨一读:

一何三坡《灰喜鹊》

之所以将此书列为第一,是因为作者是一个年届四十的孩子,一个喜欢读童话的诗人,这本诗集正如其名字,汇集了山林里的歌声。

社会是一座钢铁的丛林,为了生存,我们要忘却多少童年的记忆,才叫成熟?我不否认,生存之术防人之心谋财之道……这些对刚走入社会的你都很重要,但有一个代价是不应该付出的,即那颗赤子之心。

推荐这本书,是希望穿越丛林的你,面对挫折肯定要坚强,但内心还要有一个温暖柔软的处所,留给山间的明月、雪枝上的灰喜鹊、远方的亲人、杮子树下的朋友……

二王小波《沉默的大多数》

他笔下那只特立独行的猪,曾给过多少人追求自由的勇气;他创造的王二,像一朵雄性的花儿,在几多风霜中坚挺着生命与爱情的灿烂。王小波的意义,尤其对80后一代青年而言,是导师性的。你的同学中,也许很多人通读了王小波的著作,向你推介他的书,每一本我都不忍割舍。

王小波留给我们的遗产,是独立思考的精神、追求自由的勇气。当你的身体汇入了社会的洪流,别忘了内心还有一只特立独行的猪。

三吴怀尧《怀尧访谈录》

当你刚刚翻开大一课本时,17岁的吴怀尧已经高中退学,在北京从事编辑工作;当你为就业而愁眉不展,吴怀尧已经在《财经时报》担纲封面报道,首创《中国作家富豪榜》产生巨大社会影响,引发万人争议,成为公众了解中国作家群体变化和国民阅读生态的风向标。

经历只是表象,我感兴趣的是,吴怀尧因不满教育制度而退学,以及师从《现代汉语词典》所表现出特立独行、绝不盲从的独立精神。

不依附任何新闻机构的《怀尧访谈录》,正是这种精神的灿然开放。我不期望中国的大学教育能为你培养独立思考的精神与能力助一臂之力,但只要你翻开《怀尧访谈录》,就会对中国文化界的现状一清二楚。在了解文化领袖真实观点的同时,看透社会的真实面目,轻松获取他们为人处事的经验,在人生路上少走弯路。

四王实甫《西厢记》

推介这本书,是因为你正在恋爱的年龄。

记得《小凤直播室》采访一个女嘉宾(好像是“打工女皇”吴士宏),谈到她在美国留学时追求者众,而最终选择了某男,是因为他们都会背白居易的《长恨歌》。可见,有点古典文学的底子,会给爱情增添许多色彩。

《西厢记》在中国古代文学史上是个绝对的另类,它文辞华美,故事跌宕,却遭受了刻意的忽略,原因是其恋爱观冲击了传统伦理。但人们还是割舍不了对此剧的喜爱,后经卫道士对故事进行选择性阐释而广为流传。金圣叹老师将其列为第六才子书。而港台导演也从中不断挖掘着爱情片的故事资源。

五朱熹《四书章句集注》

本来想推荐《论语》,但实在难以割舍《孟子》。记得刚走出校园,在广东打工时,遇见一位工友名叫朱庸巍,他谈起孟子时的神情与气质,深深感染了我。“虽万千人,吾往矣”,金庸笔下的乔峰,实与孟子精神同源。

语孟学庸,此四书本是传统小学读本,今日大学生实应补上这一课,做人的理想与道理,岂非人生必需?不忧不惧不惑之境界,岂非人生期达?

若寻单行本,《论语》可读钱穆先生的《论语新解》,于丹老师的鸡汤就算了吧。

六钱穆《国史大纲》

“历史是任人打扮的小姑娘”,但历史知识又不可或缺,要启发独立的思考力,最好多读几本不同的历史书。如果只读过历史课本,反不如只听听评书,但只听易中天他们的评书,也会导致脑残。

钱子的《国史大纲》,对中国历史虽少批判,但总比为了某集团的利益而说假话要强得多。经历了对传统文化的全盘否定,从钱子这里再捡回一点自信与热忱,也没有什么不好。

七羽戈《从黄昏起飞》

本来想推介一本有关法学的著作,这样的年头,法治观念从我做起,不但能保护自身权益,亦能为社会发展尽一份薄力。但我对法学不甚了解,求之方家,也难寻普及读物。

羽戈老师是法学出身,以时事评论、思想随笔行世,深入浅出,运笔遣句中自然注入了一种法学的思辨精神,故以此书代之法学读物。

八亨利•赫兹利特《一课经济学》

推介这本书,并非我认为这是经济学中的杰作,我只是认为,别管你是不是学经济的,至少都应该读一两本经济学方面的书。

就业困难,薪水太低,工作不好做……如果总是纠缠于其中,生活也就太无聊了。何不跳出这怪圈,站在上面看一看:金钱原来是这么一回事,社会分配是这样造就穷人富人的……这样的话,也许心胸能开阔一些,求职不成没准儿瞄到了创业的机会。

九重庆老康《全中国最穷的小伙子发财日记》

蛋糕已经分完了,就业尚且困难,“发财”已如说梦。老康,这个无权无势又年轻的迷茫青年,从身边着手,去寻找最小最近的机会,老老实实,深入一行,在那些看似渺茫可笑的机会背后,一次次抓到了实实在在的金钱,用最笨最平庸的发财之道,日积月累,越做越大。

你刚刚毕业,我不期望你能像老康一样“发财”,但在这个严酷的竞争环境中,生存下去是第一位。你不是官二代也不是富二代,读读老康的发财日记,至少你能丢掉不切实际的幻想,有能力直面生存的挑战。

十余华《活着》

生命是美好的,社会也是可以美好的,但现实不一定如此。最后,我想选一本书,诉说现实的残酷性。听说慕容雪村的《原谅我红尘颠倒》就很黑暗,但我还没有看,担心只有黑暗。最终还是选择了《活着》。其实,《活着》的价值倒不在于它揭示的现实的残酷性,而是生命的韧力。 (文/贾洵)

毛泽东给儿子开的书单

中华读书报 张铁民

中国自古代以来的经书典籍很多,想要人们一本本地读过去,恐怕就是搭上大半条性命都不算完事,古人所谓的皓首穷经,也就是这个道理了,那么这时要是有一张由读书多的人开出来的书单在手,那可就不一样了。这里就有一份毛泽东为他的儿子们开的一张书单,今日读来,颇有令人可玩味处。

电视剧《延安颂》说到毛泽东给儿子写信寄书的事。确实,在延安时毛泽东曾两次寄书给正在苏联上中学的儿子岸英和岸青。1939年寄去的一批书,途中丢失了。1941年1月寄出第二批书时,他写信说:“关于寄书,前年我托西安林伯渠老同志寄了一大堆给你们少年集团,听说没有收到,真是可惜。现再酌检一点寄上,大批的待后。”少年集团,泛指和岸英、岸青一起读书的中国学生。

这是一批什么书呢?毛泽东随信附了一张书单,并注明了册数。上面写道:“精忠岳传2,官场现形4,子不语正续3,三国志4,高中外国史3,高中本国史2,中国经济地理1,大众哲学1,中国历史教程1,兰花梦奇传1,峨嵋剑侠传4,小五义6,续小五义6,聊斋志异4,水浒4,薛刚反唐1,儒林外史2,何典1,清史演义2,洪秀全2,侠义江湖6.”

细看这份书单,既在意料之中,又在意料之外。《高中外国史》、《高中本国史》、《中国经济地理》和《中国历史教程》,大概都是当时的中国教科书,可用来补充岸英他们只读苏联教科书的不足。《大众哲学》是书单中唯一的一本政治类书,毛泽东对艾思奇的这本著作曾反复读过,并和作者当面讨论过,认为写得通俗易懂,有利于马克思主义哲学的普及。这些都在意料之中。

古典文学和历史小说在这份书单中占有很大比重,也是意料之中的。因为毛泽东自己从青少年时代起就十分喜爱读这些书。这里的《三国志》恐怕不是陈寿写的记传体史著,而是罗贯中的《三国志演义》,1950年中华书局还曾以《三国志》为名出版。《精忠岳传》即清人钱彩编著的《说岳全传》。“洪秀全”即清末黄小配写的《洪秀全演义》,章太炎写有序。《清史演义》,当时流行有三种:陆士锷《清史演义》、蔡东藩《清史通俗演义》、许啸天《清宫十三朝演义》。毛泽东寄出的,很可能是蔡东藩的。1936年毛泽东致电在西安的李克农:“请购整套中国历史演义两部(包括各朝史演义)。”就是指蔡东藩写的《中国历代通俗演义》。

《子不语》是清朝乾隆年间的大才子袁枚写的笔记小说,正编二十四卷,续编十卷,都是怪异的民间故事,包括神狐鬼怪、三教九流,长则数千字,短则几十字,如《四耳猫》一则仅两句:“四川简州,猫皆四耳。有从简州来者,亲为余言。”书名取自《论语。述而》“子不语怪力乱神”。《何典》是清乾嘉年间上海才子张南庄用英语方言写的讽刺滑稽小说,通篇描绘了阴曹地府里的形形色色的鬼。刘半农于1926年获得四十七年前的印本后,标点刊印,一年之内居然印发了两版。鲁迅对《何典》也非常感兴趣,曾感叹“访而不得”,故刘半农请他写序时,竟在1926年5月25日一天内写了《题记》和《为半农题记〈何典〉后作》两篇文章,并向日本友人增田涉推荐,被收入日本编印的《世界幽默全集》。

毛泽东向儿子推荐《子不语》、《何典》这两种带有“野狐禅”味道的书,似乎有点出乎意料之外,岸英他们毕竟还是中学生嘛。但更令人意外的是,毛泽东居然寄出了好几部武侠小说。《小五义》、《续小五义》讲的是“七侠五义”后代的故事。《峨嵋剑侠传》类似著名武侠作家还珠楼主写的《蜀山剑侠传》。《侠义江湖》不知是否是平江不肖生的《江湖奇侠传》或《侠义英雄传》?现在风行的金庸、梁羽生、古龙等新派武侠,均源于这些武侠小说。武侠小说历来遭到正统派人士的贬斥,却在民间广泛流布,迟至近年才引起学界的重视。中华书局《文史知识》杂志设辟过“武侠小说漫谈”专栏,学者陈平原著有《千年文人侠客梦》一书,中国人民大学开设过“新武侠小说与中国传统文化”讲坛。确实,青少年读一些武侠小说,有利于开发思维能力。试看那些剑侠,上天入地,修身寻道,仗义除恶,既是江湖社会的折射,又突破了时空界限和人力界限,跟西方当代影视作品中的“超人”、“魔幻”形象异曲同工,极具幻想力。而思维幻想力是思维创造力的基础。剑侠使出种种剑光斗武,或紫金色,或青白色,岂不就是激光武器?那些邪恶的剑侠,往往采集毒物用作武器,岂非就是细菌化学武器?

武侠小说和《岳传》、《三国》、《水浒》、《洪秀全》、《薛刚反唐》等历史小说,是中华民族的尚武精神在文学创作中的反映,前者多用浪漫笔法,后者多用写实笔法。浪漫的尚武,现实的英雄,构成了这些书的文化主调。而毛泽东的文化性格,正恰是充满浪漫气息和英雄气概的。反观时下为提高学生素质而推出的种种必读书目,谁会选入《子不语》、《何典》、《小五义》、《峨嵋剑侠传》、《薛刚反唐》等?这是胸襟所使然!

《兰花梦奇传》,笔者查过一些资料,未见著录,望有识者补正。
