CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION

The aim of the project is to examine how, since the mid-19th century, attempts have been made to renew Christian civilization in a rapidly changing world subjected to the industrial and technical revolution. The broad socio-cultural contexts of the formation of the great documents of the Church, especially the encyclicals: Aeterni Patris, Rerum novarum, Pascendi dominici gregis, Divini Redemptoris, Quadragesimo anno – as documents that changed the Church’s approach to issues of social issues and science, which were the reaction of representatives of the Church, and therefore of Christian civilization, to completely new phenomena. The project will examine attempts to renew Christian civilization in terms of history, in the fields of philosophy, art, sociology and the humanities. Philosophical works will be examined, historical, sociological, as well as literary, painting and musical works. It will be examined to what extent they carried Christian civilization in a new form, and to what extent they preserved, by changing their form, their traditional identity. The project is interdisciplinary in nature. The research encompasses various fields: philosophy, philosophical anthropology, philosophy of law and social philosophy, sociology, sociology of the family, history of art, or literary criticism. The aim of the research is to analyze the peculiarities of Christian civilization, present in various manifestations of human activity, its adaptability and ability to imprint itself on many different spheres of social life while maintaining its own identity in changing conditions. In this context, an important element is to point to contemporary conditions, to the currently civilization changes that are taking place. The research will also include the theme of examining the reasons for the failures of some civilization projects.
