Ambivalences of Maturity


In an autobiographical stye, this essay suggests that the lack of maturity of the most part of the contemporary society depends on an very epochal crisis of the symbols and moral values of the patriarchal age, which had many “rites of passage”. But rather than to regret the premodern age, it would be better to looking for a psychological “good maturity”.
