Mircea Eliade

La nostalgie des origines


Mircea Eliade, qui a consacré une partie importante de son œuvre à l'histoire des religions, s'est proposé de souligner dans ce recueil le rôle culturel que l'historien des religions est appelé à jouer dans une société désacralisée, en contribuant à l'élaboration d'une culture de type universel. En effet, l'analyse des religions archaïques et exotiques ne se limite pas à leur importance historique. Le philosophe, le théologien et le critique littéraire peuvent également tirer profit des découvertes faites dans ce domaine.

Dans cette perspective, Mircea Eliade s'est efforcé de présenter et de discuter des documents tirés de religions peu ou mal connues, dans l'espoir qu'un «nouvel humanisme» pourrait être engendré par la confrontation de l'Occidental moderne avec ces mondes étrangers.
