La culture comme religion : l'interpretation postmoderne de la relation entre la culture et la religion

Abstract : Postmodernism affects the report between culture and religion. It introduces in philosophy three theories: the weak thought based on deconstruction, the liquid reality and the discontinuity of philosophical discourse. Mutation of philosophical approach changed the definitions of culture and religion and allowed to formulate the central question of this research: is it possible that culture absorbs religion and creates a religion of culture? New definitions give the understanding of how the postmodernism rejects the idea of transcendence and reduces religion to culture. The postmodern philosophy generates conditions allowing the appearance of the religion of culture which manifests itself in the New Age movement, the new paganism, the atheistic spirituality and in the pop-cults.The new religion base itself on the anthropology transformed by liquidity, relativism and new spiritual researches outside the institutions. Constructed on this modified fundament, the religion of culture is devoid of God, revelation, institution and has no historical line. With the new mysticism, this religion situates itself in opposition to the great historical religions.
