Summary/Abstract: The article is trying to answer to the question what is postmodernism, and especially how and why should it be overcome? In first, the postmodernism must be overcome because it offered to man a religion without religiosity, a superman without a term of comparison, and gods without glory and sense. Secondly, the postmodernism is reproached for reversing the meaning of beyond, the word on which postmodernists have built their sand castles, reversing its meaning and transforming it into an here immanent and atheistic. The solution proposed by the author to overcoming the postmodern impasse is just emanating from this concept of beyond, which can alo be seen as a relocation of man in mystery and transcendence. Beyondism means, as a philosophical concept and solution, not only presence in the everyday reality, but also a promise for absence and openness to mystery. In other words, with Heidegger's terminology, the opening of Dasein is not just to here (Das da), but to beyond and universality.
