Modernity: Convenience – Inconvenience

Tradition is a cultural heritage that we must pass on from generation to generation. It is the essential component of the identity of a community. This is somehow the memory of facts, habits, lifestyle, achievements of man in his fight deal with the elements of nature, in its immemorial project to get a place in the universe and keep it. This tradition is scalable and is enriched with new achievements, new visions, and the pace of progress of the group that is responsible, consciously or unconsciously to maintain it. It is in this scalability tradition takes root modernity.

Ask the question: But modernity as a relatively recent phenomenon is seen as against the root of the tradition. It is indeed an awareness and a conscious choice to get rid of the tradition to engage without return to the path of progress. It goes without saying that as with any new trend, opponents erect as defenders of tradition against those who advocate the renewal and liberation from the yoke of tradition considered reducing the potential of the individual.

Announce the plan’s issue deserves attention, and that’s what we’ll try to do, opposing the opinions of some to those of others. And if it is true that one can not speak of modernity without opposing the tradition, we will choose to test modernity. Also, given the nature of the subject, it seems wiser to opt for a dialectical thesis. Our map will update some of its benefits, then the antithesis will oppose their counterbalance the disadvantages we deem appropriate to this effect. Finally, we conclude with a summary where it will be appropriate to take a position for or against modernity.

Development History: Modernity, as we often tend to believe, is not a new phenomenon. It has always accompanied the great changes in the lives of men. Since ancient times, step that marks the end of prehistory, the man was confronted with these dynamic things that always require a questioning of the foundations that represents the tradition, to assimilate the one hand, but above the other, transmit, and it is in this appropriation-transmission that operates modernity. Reference may be among the major movements that have marked the apparent immutability of humanity, the debate between Plato Aristotle to the top of the Greek civilization, or later at Al-Mou’tazila against Al -Acha’irites to the time of the glory of Islam, or even closer to home, the famous quarrel between the Ancients and the Moderns. But it was not until the Enlightenment that modernity, as a current of thought or philosophical doctrine, acquires acclaim. Indeed, humanism advocates sovereignty rights. The latter is now seen as the measure of all things. Reason and science take over of religion and tradition. Modern man uses his reason to enter the objective knowledge, and thus to progress. We then speak of world citizen, universal citizen. The boundaries of the traditions and customs of companies must fall, and the free movement of new values will be the guarantor of human reason in its modern sense. Two centuries later, in the age of the Internet, the world has only geopolitical boundaries and we’ll talk more and more globalization, internationalization or globalization. While these concepts are in the field of the market economy, but the fact remains, they speak for themselves about the idea of abolition of borders and the concept of predefined universal citizen in the informed Century. Modernity is both dependent and promotes progress. And so it is in the life of the city that modernity evolving. The city itself being pure product of the evolution of man. Wherever there is group of men, they are working hard to improve their lives and the growing phenomenon, they eventually build prosperous cities, which attract more and more believing people find wealth, but it is actually the work that thrives there, and the quality of life gets better. This is what we can now call the consumer society better to say this is where convenience – inconvenience of modernity lies.
