Abstract

The essay dedicated to I. D. Sîrbu comes in the context of celebrating 100 years since the birth of the great novelist, playwriter and essayist. I insisted at the beginning of the essay on his relationship with Lucian Blaga, professor of philosophy during the time of the refuge of the University “Regele Ferdinand I” from Cluj to Sibiu (1940-1944), focusing on the catalytic influence of the professor in the formation process of the young writers. Lucian Blaga was in favour of a bright “paideic model” like Socrate’s maieutics.

Abstract

Since he was a high school student in Bucharest, Constantin Noica was fascinated by Lucian Blaga’s philosophical, poetical, and dramaturgical evolution. Between the Two World Wars in Romania only few people managed to understand the expressionist vision in Lucian Blaga’s theater. More notable is the precise intuition with which the young Constantin Noica noticed the extraordinary value of Master Manole, which was played both in Romania and in Switzerland. Later on, this was considered to be Lucian Blaga’s most outstanding dramatic play. In the decades to come, Professor and Academician Lucian Blaga kept Constantin Noica in a high esteem.

Abstract

In this study we conducted a research on the Facebook page of the Romanian Gendarmerie, to understand the magnitude of the effects of the crisis this institution is facing after the Diaspora Protest ended in violence. We monitored the posts from August 10 to December 31, 2018 and analyzed the most relevant 50 comments from each post, in order to determine their character: positive, negative or neutral. In conducting this study, we started from the hypothesis that this event has affected the image of the Romanian Gendarmerie in the long time, and the crisis communication strategies used by the representatives of this institution have made a significant contribution to postponing the image restoration.

Abstract

The school can therefore accommodate television screens and computers but provided they are confined to specific practices, limited, criticized, to allow time and space for a transmission of knowledge, know-how and skills which require a group, microcosm of humanity, and an authority, carrying values and ends. The screen must lose all its fantastic power, its omnipresence, to remain a complementary and partial tool in a school world, a space and a time proper, intended to instruct and educate the pupil or the student, to lead him towards a citizenship that is not confused with a consumer or with a player on screens.

Abstract

This essay proposed to analyze the profile of Adriana Bittel’s writing with deep meta and intertextual accents. In a transgressive and textual framework of the 80’s generation prose, the work presents a new way of approaching the narrative by intentionally disposing all its mechanisms of conception, in a context in which the fiction self-comments and brings the reader with all the tools and components of “textual engineering”.

Abstract

The article outlines the evolution of anthropomorphism, from the prehistoric phase in the contemporary one, along with related concepts such as animism and personification. A number of food brands now use this metaphorical language to influence consumers behavior. Anthropomorphic archetype becomes thus the stereotype of communication strategies and the environment in which messages propagate is governed by the paradigm of corporeality. The rhetoric of many advertising campaigns “sex exploits” successfully the cliché of carnal seduction, namely to arouse gastronomic appetite by the erotic appetite.

Abstract

The present conference discusses the symbolic meaning of bread in the religious mentality of the Ancient Near East. We will find that bread, besides being a food necessary for its existence, also represented a cultural archetype that summed up and assumed in itself either different divinities of Oriental civilizations, or had a ritual-sacrificial character, in order to facilitate man rather immortality.

Abstract

Vasile Băncilă is a thinker to be placed where he fits in the hierarchy of values of Romanian philosophers. Therefore, this text invokes some “start-up frames”, through which we offer a range of accents of the reception of the intellectual and philosophical dowry left by the author. Vasile Băncilă left posterity printed texts, but also thousands of sheets written over four decades of life, unfinished and not ready to be printed. Some of them are from his youth; on some of these focuses this text, namely on what meant for the young philosophy professor Vasile Băncilă the act or the process of philosophizing.

Abstract

For two days, together with friends across the country, Craiova celebrated Ion D. Sîrbu. Only those who deliberately ignore him do not understand the spiritual force of this creator who left a undenieble fingerprint upon the place where he lived his life. His books, but also his existence full of tribulations and restrictions have been subject of reflection in the events that took place in several places that have been close to the great writer and moralist.
