TURN OF THE CENTURY: END OR BEGINNING?

Authors

Abstract

Turns of centuries have always been in the centre of interest and thus have become the milestones, the landmarks of history. At the turn of a century some tasks are finished and others are started - at least we like to think so. Fear also gathers around turns of centuries, fear from that fact that the time has come when we are reproached with our sins and faults and we have to expiate thern. The next turn of the century cannot be the time of either impotent waiting or of the silly decisions of the selfI-important, power-hungry Man. The century behind us teaches us patience, responsibility.

Keywords:

change, repetition, turn of the century, fear, symbol, responsibility
