Modernitate versus tradiţie (II)

  • Subiect: There are essentially two perspectives from which we could watch the world: the modern one, specific to the contemporary man and the pre-modern one, corresponding to what we call the traditional man. To these two perspectives, which basically observe and judge the same world, correspond as many dominant mentalities. Even if there are several things that separate these perspectives than those they approach, they are not in all their aspects of particular nature on divergent or incongruous positions. About the modern perspective we can say that it belongs to the world we live in today, at least we, who consider ourselves to be part of the “civilized world”. In its general features the modern thinking is located on positions which were defined as “humanist” and which place in the center of the universe of man his personality, too. It is a vision that corresponds to a mental anthropocentric perspective designed on an autonomous world in relation to God and where the evolution, progress, innovation, development, democracy are values that today seem undeniable. The other perspective, the traditional one, corresponds to some historical periods that preceded the modernity. It is certainly a perspective peculiar to a bygone world and that today we can only glimpse in the cultural heritage of the past or, sometimes, in the historiographical works. This angle of view over the world and human existence was a theocentric one and it considered the divinity as the foundation of the world, sensible or supersensible, alike. The supreme values corresponding to this vision were the tradition, persistence, identity, divine order, meritocracy and they were also undeniable, at that time.
