Sample text

Since we hold the present war to be a sequel to a harsh cultural conflict that raged throughout the ages between the Islamic more Tantalic social characters and the occidental largely Sisyphean social characters we have to deliberate on the concepts of Tantalic and Sisyphean social characters. These are related to our personality theory that we have developed in extenso elsewhere (Shoham 1979). This theory identifies two opposing personality types: the “participant” and the “separant”. “Participation” means the identification of the ego with people, objects or symbols outside the self, and the desire to lose one’s separate identity in fusion with these externals.

There can be no admixture between their indigenous cultures and Western culture, especially when the latter exploits the former through political or economic colonialism. Freedom fighting and wars of independence marked most of the second half of the 20th century. Furthermore, the conflictual encounter with Occidental culture and the relatively shallow absorption of their patterns of cultures and norms was linked to a disintegration of the familial and traditional normative structures of Muslim societies.

Consequently, we have to define our cultural continuum and describe the polarities of our social characters, and this, to be sure, is no mean task. The “portrait of a culture”, depicts only the predominant cultural traits and patterns, but every culture is perforce pluralistic and displays, to varying degrees, aspects of the opposite polar type, as well. This is the main reason why a continuum is the most suitable means of describing the polarity and range of social characters. The polarization into Sisyphean-separant and Tantalic-participant social characters has influenced the Weltanschauung of observers from time immemorial.
