  • Hello everyone! ;D

    it's 13 April 2022 2.00 AM in Malaysia. Facing with these 2 big phrases in the quiet early morning: 人生觀 and 價值觀.

    How would you translate these into English?

    人生觀 = your life's view?
    價值觀 = your value systems?

    Aren't both similar? ;D

    Thanks for validating. These 2 phrases just feel like same one. Just suspect if got any subtle differences.

    Hard to say when one is not born into the Chinese mindset.
    In the other post you got a reply in Chinese which basically expands the idea of the "worldview" phrase to its ethical extents and further to the physical outcomes into physical mainfestations/realisations. So "virtue" may be an aspect to consider too, but in the West we dont have too many phrases covering all of those.
    I like to go trying to  catch the literal meanings for the characters to the translation and not put too much interpretation into it. Of course half of it is lost because the characters have so many different meanings and one can make totally different translations of them. E.G. I have some ten different translations of the DaodeJing, and once you compare the actual texts, these arelike  ten different books.
