USING IDIOMS 活用成語2017-11-20

Chinese practice 集思廣益 (ji2 si1 guang3 yi4) collecting opinions is of wide benefit 諸葛亮(西元一八一~二三四年)是三國時期蜀國的軍師與丞相。《三國志.卷三九.蜀書》記載,諸葛亮向屬下官員提供了建議,他說:「當你參與政事時,把許多人的智慧結合起來是很重要的,吸收各種意見對你來說會很有幫助。」他繼續說,若因為怕得罪人而避免提出不同的意見,會讓人更難做事。 諸葛亮用「集眾思廣忠益也」來表示收集許多人的不同意見是有助益的。成語「集思廣益」便是由此而來,其字面意思是「收集意見是很有助益的」,或「由廣泛的建議中獲益」。 一個意義類似的英文諺語是「two heads are better than one」(兩個頭比一個頭好),其中「two」意指「多於一個」。我們已知這說法在十六世紀中期之前已在使用了,因為它被收錄在英格蘭作家約翰‧海伍德(約西元一四九七~一五八○年)的《英文諺語全集》中。海伍德寫道: Some heades haue taken two headis better then one: But ten heads without wit, I wene as good none. 海伍德此言說明集結眾人的點子雖是件好事,但如果這些人不是特別聰明(「without wit」),結合眾多人(例如此處所說的十人)的意見卻沒有好處。 英國小說家和學者C.S.路易斯(西元一八九八~一九六三年)為這一概念增添了歷史的面向。他寫道:「Two heads are better than one, notFULL STORY
