Summary/Abstract: The modern criticism concentrated on a new human pattern meant to replace rationality and the virtuous ancient behavior. The modern man is dominated by passions and interests thus his behavior is a passionate and interested one. But the end of an age represents only the end of an illusion, the dependences vary and they lead to new solutions imposed by the new social structure. The culture of duty available for the ancient times was changed by the moderns due to their focus on rights and freedom and is interpreted by the Postmodernism at the level of a new structure which involves international organizations meant to decide the image of the world democracy. The culture of criticism has become a communicative culture having political influences spread by the principle of federalization. The crisis of the modern world will have to face obstacles from the spiritual field and its effects will be extended over the present stage to a new human condition characteristic for new premises of criticism.
