Summary/Abstract: Secularization is a phenomenon supposing major mutations on the social level.Thus, based on the principle of rationality, secularization has led to theremoval of religion from the social sphere, the desacralization, aiming,ultimately, that the sacred disappear altogether from man's life. Within theglobalizing-secularizing society, economics seeks to take possession of theentire social and spiritual life, helped by a policy-aggressive mercantilementality. Secularization has led to manipulation of man so that he believes hehas to build his future by abstaining from religion. The secularized man hascome to the conclusion that only by his own forces helped by reason, economyand technology he can be the one who creates progress, namely perfection forhimself and for the world he lives in. The hypermodern man is a man ofephemerality, a human being looking for his accomplishment in trifles, who nolonger has deification as his final goal. The problems that man is facing todaycan be solved by taking the eternity as reference system for them.
