Summary/Abstract: The subject of this paper is the interpretation of the recent South Slavic past given in the works of Mile Savić, a Serbian philosopher and social theorist, who recently passed away. The wars for territorial heritage of the former Yugoslavia, the aggression of the NATO alliance on the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, the project of Euro-Atlantic integration of Serbia – are just some of the most significant thematic points of that interpretation. By providing an exhaustive analysis of Savić’s attitudes to these and kindred phenomena of the recent political and social history of the region, the author concludes that, in a large mosaic of knowledge of a ”time rich in misfortunes” (Tacitus), the piece attributed to it by this Serbian philosopher, who left the intellectual and life stage too early, will be, by all means, among the most significant and precious ones.
