《鳴鼓集》儒釋知識社群的衝突源於彼此對佛教戒律的不同期待，傳統文人將佛教戒律視為重要的倫常規範，不可逾越，復加長期以來儒釋同源或三教合一的觀念，故傳統文人堅持不懈，維護佛教戒律。林德林不畏傳統禁忌，為開拓佛教新內涵而與儒者論辨，甚至公然舉行佛式婚禮，可惜支持者寡，使得其佛教事業由盛轉衰。論述《鳴鼓集》除精熟其文獻，尚須配合崇文社所有徵文、徵詩與傳媒，才能充分掌握問題的全貌。《鳴鼓集》反佛教破戒文學的創作與其維護倫常規範是一體兩面，互為表裡的，論者或以「色情文學」稱之實未允當。詮釋《鳴鼓集》固然不容疏離當前的生命處境與價值觀，然亦須注意儒學與佛學的核心價值，方不致使問題流於以今律古，才能較周延闡釋儒釋衝突的文化意義。 The conflict of Confucian knowledge community of Ming Gu Ji is originated from different expectations on Buddhist abstinence. Because traditional literati regard Buddhist abstinence as ethical norm, and the Confucian and Buddhist share similar concepts, the literati strived to protect the Buddhist abstinence. Lin De-lin defied traditional taboo, and engaged in debate with Confucianists on the new connotation of Buddhism and even held Buddhist wedding. However, with little support, his Buddhist organization receded. Understanding Ming Gu Ji needs to be familiar with its literatures as well as the solicited essays, poetry, and media reports, in order to grasp the problem. The anti-Buddhist literatures in Ming Gu Ji and conservation of ethical norm is one issue with two aspects. Interpretation of Ming Gu Ji not only should supplement with the current lifestyle and values, as well as the core values of Confucianism and Buddhism, in order to expound the cultural connotation of Confucian knowledge.
