Abstract:In the present study, we intend to grasp the proper means to spot Lovinescu’s critical system, by appealing to several significant moments of the Romanian and European literary criticism, as it figured itself during the inter-bellum period. Consequently, this study focuses on the doctrine works as such (namely, Istoria civilizaţiei române moderne [The History of Modern Romanian Civilisation] and Istoria literaturii române contemporane [The History of Contemporary Romanian Literature]). The integrationist perspective provided by the general frame of cultural analysis represents the methodological standpoint of the present study. Hence, the investigation and the foray of Lovinescu’s sources must always stick to mentalities in general, and to the ideological bedrock of his criticism. Most of all, we found that the capital trace on Lovinescu’s works is left by a sui generis humanist and liberal thought, marked with imprints of individualism and rationalism.
