Succintă analiză comparativă între obiectele lumii tradiționale, ca elemente identitare, și obiectele lumii postmoderne, ca bunuri de consum
This paper aims to present the influence of the consumer society on the way we relate to objects. Comparing the way of reporting to the object of the traditional world and of the consumer society we can observe significant changes. The consumer society promotes a certain standard of life that you can only access through consumption. In the paper I pointed out that the objects of the traditional Maramureș world have profound meanings, they represent a symbol between generations. The traditional object is characterized by sustainability as opposed to that of the consumer society whose life is very short. The consumer society creates artificial needs that deepen the dissatisfaction of not owning enough. In a society that incites to unlimited consumption, building a moral attitude based on discernment is of utmost importance.
