Abstract

Restoring the need of contemporary man for certain signs and symbols, the book ” Ipostaze ale simbolului în lumea tradițională” [Hypostases of the symbol in the traditional world], second edition, written by Daniel Cojanu and published by Lumen Publishing House from Iasi, Romania, in 2019, invites to the apparent conciliation between consecrated values and the condition of postmodernity. Structured in two macro-chapters, “Reductionist Hermeneutics” and “Restorative Hermeneutics. Hypostases and Exemplary Functions of the Symbol in the Traditional World ”, the volume especially follows “the epistemological and axiological mutations that occurred at the level of fundamental presuppositions and attitudes towards the world” (Cojanu, 2019, p. 9).
