THE SOCIOLOGICAL IMPLICATIONS OF THE PHILOSOPHY OF NIETZSCHE: THE ANTI-CHRISTIAN CHARACTER OF POSTMODERN FORM OF SOCIALIZATION
Languages of publication
The present article is an analysis and interpretation of the sociological dimension of the philosophy which admittedly initiated the postmodern era: the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche. I will try to show that the overthrow of the institutional as well as the ethical dimension of Christianity along with the Christian image of humanity was unavoidable for the cultural and social changes which we witness nowadays. Nietzsche’s philosophy opposed modern tendencies that retained Christian morality but rejected faith in the religious message of Christianity. Therefore the “death of God” had to result in the postmodern “revaluation of all values”. The conceptualization of the sociological dimension makes it possible to realize that the demarcation line between modernity and postmodernity is a radical withdrawal from Christian axiology and forms of socialization. While in premodern and modern times social integration focused on those philosophical ideas which made human life meaningful, in postmodern times forms of socialization concentrate mainly on the topic of human lifestyle.
