Abstract

The main idea of this article is that the hermeneutics of Mircea Eliade and Lucian Blaga equally continue to be relevant because it does not omit the specifics of the living condition of contemporary man, located at the crossing of two modes of existence: one, sacred, the other one, profane. Unlike the man of traditional societies, the contemporary man lost the ability to relate to the sacred in what concerns his genuine activities; therefore, in search for a specific meaning of his life and his vital activities, the contemporary individual should return to the religious man of archaic societies, as a powerful source of inspiration.Both Eliade and Blaga are aware of the importance of the sacred, imposing transcendence as one of the fundamental values of the human condition that essentially marks the existence of contemporary man. The sacred depicted by transcendent archetypes can be camouflaged, destructed, forgotten, and revived in particular historical contexts. Lucian Blaga and Mircea Eliade plead for an urgent re-sacralization of the contemporary world and time. The re-sacralization of the condition of contemporary man will constitute the solution for his meaningful existence.
