Abstract:
We are living in a situation where the 'system world' colonises the 'life world'. Morality is merging in oblivion. The threads of group life have loosened, the bonds of community life have broken down and the hold of religion is fading away. Values and morality are waning fast. Did actually humanism decline? Does it pose a threat to social life? This paper analyses the parametric effect of generational and rural-urban differences on the perception of changes in values and declining humanism.
