  现代的人在其外面的生活上集中巨大的力量,而现代艺术却企图把那内面打得贫穷暴露出来让人们看,一个从别的星球来的观察者,看到这种悬殊的不同,要大吃一惊也是当然的。毕竟,现代是发现了原子能又能又加以利用的时代,在几年内,甚至几个月内,就会有原子动力的飞机,能够飞往外太空,好几个礼拜都无需回返地球。人类还有什么做不到的事呢?但是如果一个从火星来的观察者,把他的目光从这些人力发挥尽致外表的工具,转移到现代小说,戏剧,绘画,雕刻,所显示的人的形状,他就会发觉那是为疑问和否定,弄得满目疮痍,面目全非的一个生物。

  这种外表的威力和内在的脆弱,二者对照的激烈令人可怕,因为它表示人类落在他自己造出的强大工具的后面,已达到危险的程度。像迫近的黑夜一般悬在我们头上的原子弹的恐怖,就因为这种落后而将来临。那是一定的,原子战争的结果,一切归于毁灭。艺术家和哲学家早已在我们这个时代开始时,就认真地在考虑这“无”的世界,而一般的人也触目惊心,开始注意到这个问题了。

  William Barrett - Irrational Man

  An observer from another planet might well be struck by the disparity between the enormous power which our age has concentrated in its external life and the inner poverty which our art seeks to expose to view. This is, after all, the age that has discovered and harnessed atomic energy, and that will, in a few years (perhaps in a few months), have atomic-powered planes which can fly through outer space and not need to return to mother earth for weeks. What cannot man do? But if an observer from Mars were to turn his attention from these external appurtenances of power to the shape of man as revealed in our novels, plays, painting, and sculpture, he would find there a creature full of holes and gaps, faceless, riddled with doubts and negations.

  This violent contrast between power and impoverishment is frightening, for it represents a dangerous lagging of man behind his own works; and in this lag lies the terror of the atomic bomb which hangs over us like impending night. Here surely the ordinary man begins to catch a fleeting glimpse of that Nothingness which both artist and philosopher have begun in our time to take seriously.
