跟 Alex 侃侃而談,才發現他所學所長看似專業獨門,其實精髓在於「雜」。中學選理科,入讀香港大學卻選了社工系;然而最後並沒學以致用投身社工行列,反而轉攻工商管理學。在職其間在商界南征北戰,最後再考的學歷卻是 I.T. 資訊管理。本來履歷已非常多變,但他出版的幾本書籍,卻是融入哲學、心理學、神經學及認知科學的「四維思考」研究。問他曾否受過該學科的正規學院訓練,他不無驕傲地說:「沒有。不過我初中已讀了大量哲學書籍,可說是無師自通。」現在花大量時間研究的「四維思考」,是他飽覽群書後的心得,透過研究去了解人類的思考模式在這個全球化社會、甚至「後全球化社會」下的演變;同時也希望了解少數天才從「三維思考」跳躍到「四維思考」的突變。

別以為他一開始已志願寫書;他的著作系列除了「四維思考」外,還包括貿易、資訊管理、中國經濟觀及CEPA細則;而他的創作生涯原來始於工作。「當時在消費者委員會工作,需要運用在職的專業意見來撰寫文章;後來跟不同業界的人士合輯書籍,那就是第一次出書。」第二次則獲得同事兼朋友的邀請,同樣因為其專業意見而合著CEPA書。其後也因為機緣巧合而繼續著書立說,由公開商界經驗,到後來分享自己的哲學心頭好,幾個年頭已出版了4, 5 本書籍了。



「我會繼續寫,因為還未有完全表達自己所想之作。」他謙虛地說:「真正值得傳世的作品,至少要蘊釀二十年。現在我只寫了十年左右而已。」除了繁忙的公事,他亦抽空寫作;跟出版社多番合作,雙方已建立默契:「我的思考方式太跳躍,不愛受約束,所以追求自主性強的出版模式;當然,我寫的都是經長期研究的心血,當然希望著作權都完全屬於自己。」問到除了現在撰寫中的「後全球化思考」及「四維思考」外還有什麼大計,他貫徹始終其又廣又「雜」的興趣:「就連我自己也不知道;不過我會繼續寫下去。」

Communication
Philosophy is the origin of all knowledge, which includes natural science, social science, literature and arts. The developments of human civilizations are also linked to the emergence and evolution of different schools of philosophy. One good example is the Age of Wisdom. Those philosophies in the well-known Wisdom Age of the ancient civilizations of Greek, Egypt, India, China and Mesopotamia are still affecting our daily life.



On the other hand, the emergence of the Age of Technology has a great impact towards the whole human civilizations when Internet and other information technology products become much common.



After the Age of Renaissances, a lot of bright philosophers appeared in the European countries, for example: Francis Bacon, Descartes, Spinoza, Immanuel Kant, Rousseau, Voltaire, Friedrich Nietzsche and Hegel. All of them gave a lot of contributions towards the human development and civilizations in the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries.



Modernism, Existentialism, Post-Modernism, Structuralism, De-structuralism and Symbolism as well as Neo-Protectionism became the dominant philosophies in the twentieth century.



The development and expansion of Capitalism via Globalization and technology made the world closer than before. Nowadays, it is hard to divide city A from city B in terms of civilization perspectives, especially in United State of America.



In this book, the author tried to formulate a new way of communication - the Synchronized Thinking. The main idea of it is to find out an easier approach to understand and explain the things happening in this twenty-first century and the mechanism of the origin.



The book is divided into three main portions:

1. The Five Elements of Human Beings

2. The Four Dimensional Thinking Theory

3. The Resources-Innovation-Communication (RIC) Model

Not only Capitalism and Globalization, but also the possible future stages of human civilizations would be illustrated in the book.
