라이어널 트릴링의 『성실과 진정』 다시 읽기
Rereading Lionel Trilling's Sincerity and Authenticity
Sincerity and Authenticity is essentially beyond summary, because its value consists largely in detailed nuance and variation. But we need to distinguish between sincerity and authenticity to a point of high focus in order to bring into the glare of the explicit some of the implication we gather from this book. Sincerity is a social virtue, a compact between me, myself, and you; authenticity is an assertion and defiance to cut away the falsities of culture. Sincerity speaks for a conduct of should; authenticity a repudiation of its bad faith. Sincerity implies a recognition of our limits, while authenticity asserts the self as absolute. Sincerity belongs to an attribute of Romanticism, authenticity to training of Modernism. The ground on which Trilling makes his judgement issues from rooted conviction. He wants people to uphold character. He has pursued the intention of sustaining the authenticity of human existence that formerly had been ratified by God. It is his purpose to keep all things and, above all our self from becoming “weightless.”
