Romanian-born historian of religion, fiction writer, philosopher, professor at the University of Chicago, and one of the pre-eminent interpreters of world religion in this century.

Gavrilescu put on a grave smile. Many scholars have accused Eliade of ” essentialism “, a type of over-generalization in which one incorrectly attributes a common “essence” to a whole group—in this case, all “religious” or “traditional” societies. Ronald Indena historian of India and University of Chicago professor, criticized Mircea Eliade, alongside other intellectual figures Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell among themfor encouraging a “romantic view” of Hinduism. Because profane space gives man no orientation for his life, the Sacred must manifest itself in a hierophany, thereby establishing a sacred site around which man can orient himself.

Eliade approaches religion by imagining an ideally “religious” person, whom he calls homo religiosus in his writings. His arm was groping again as he was going along the screen.

They displayed his rejection of liberalism and the modernizing goals of the Wallachian revolution perceived as “an abstract apology of Mankind” [39] and “ape-like imitation of [Western] Europe”[40] as well as for democracy itself accusing it of “managing to crush all attempts at national renaissance”, [41] and later praising Benito Mussolini ‘s Fascist Italy on the grounds that, according to Eliade, “[in Italy,] he who thinks for himself is promoted to the highest office in the shortest of tigancii.


After getting off, Gavrilescu was aware of the same torrid mlrcea and the smell of the melting asphalt. However, Eliade argues against those he calls ” historicist or existentialist philosophers” who do not recognize “man in general” behind particular men produced by particular situations [] Eliade cites Immanuel Kant as the likely forerunner of eliadee kind of “historicism”.

He entered stepping on the carpet which became ever thicker and softer; it seemed as if he were walking on a mattress. Search for a book to add a reference. As the noise died out he discovered an old woman, quite close to him. Eliade lets the reader understand that they are in fact talking about the same woman. He mentions his own field of History of Religions as one of the fields that was obsessed with origins during the 19th century:.

As a result, his daughter decides to have intercourse with a lowly stranger, becoming pregnant in the hope that her parents would consequently allow her to marry her lover.

The Sacred and the Profane. The girls whirled him in a reel, shouting and whistling.

Gavrilescu followed her quite bewitched; yet after a few steps he stopped, as if to ask a question. However, he has been accused of making over-generalizations: If we define shamanism this way, Eliade claims, we find that the term covers a collection of phenomena that share a common and unique “structure” and “history”. The tack is not to try fruitlessly to keep it unchanging, but to discover where it is hiding. Eliade admits that every religious phenomenon is shaped by the particular culture and history that produced it:.

A hierophany amounts to a “revelation of an absolute reality, opposed to the non-reality of the vast surrounding expanse”.

Gavrilescu began fumbling for his wallet, but his hands shook ever tiganc violently and, on finding it among his handkerchiefs, the wallet slipped down onto the carpet.

Who is the gypsy? The girl drew him as gently as before into the carriage with her. Eliade noted that, when traditional societies found a new territory, they often perform consecrating rituals that reenact the hierophany that established the Center and founded the world.

As one of the figures in the Criterion literary society —Eliade’s initial encounter with the traditional far right was polemical: While traveling and teaching in Western Europe in the years following the second World War, he wrote anti-communist pieces in Luceafarula Romanian-language publication aimed toward the advancement of young writers of the new communist state.
