Condiţia Lumii după revoluţiile anului 1989

Într-un articol recent din revista NEW REPUBLIC, domnul Mark Lilla, profesor de Umanioare la Columbia University, analizează condiţia Lumii după revoluţiile anului 1989 petrecute în Europa de Est. Şi Mark Lilla recunoaşte pe faţă : “Ne lipsesc conceptele adecvate, chiar vocabularul, pentru a descrie lumea în care sîntem acum imersaţi.” Spre surpriza mea, profesorul Mark Lilla recurge la calea ideologică primară pe care am încercat-o şi eu (dar strict limitându-mă la tradiţia de la Sfântu Sava). Domnul Mark Lilla scrie în mod expres : “What is, or was, ideology? Dictionaries define it as a “system” of ideas and beliefs people hold that motivate their political action. But the metaphor is inapt. All practical activity, not just political activity, involves ideas and beliefs. An ideology does something different: it holds us in its grasp with an enchanting picture of reality. To follow the optical metaphor, ideology takes an undifferentiated visual field and brings it into focus, so that objects appear in a predetermined relation to each other. The political ideologies born out of the French Revolution were particularly potent because they came with moving pictures that disclosed how the present emerged from a comprehensible past and was now moving toward an intelligible future.” Deci Mark Lilla se referă la Ideologia lui Destutt de Tracy asociată cu paradigma thermidoriană.
