M. Doni - S. Tomelleri, Without Dreams and Without Mercy: The Sacred Today

This article deals with an old subject through a new approach. The old topic, maybe one of the most typical and peculiar in the social sciences, is the sacred; the new approach is represented by the intent to invert the modern (weberian) process of secularization. If Modernity is to be defined as a process of slow, inexorable removal from the holy foundation of the social bound, «post-modernity» (whatever it means) marks a kind of «return to the sacred» not in the sense of a collective conversion to the oldest forms of religious devotion, but, on the contrary, in the sense of a social «sacrifice» of what could be considered the last, most important and disturbing sphere of social attraction and affection: the consumerism.

Keywords: capitalism, consumption, devotion/conversion, emotion, sacred.
