Based on the criticism of the culture that George Steiner displays in his especially works, especially in In the castle of Bluebeard (1971) and in Antigones (1984), this article attempts to expose the concept of crisis as a constituent element of Steinerian analyses about Western civilization after Auschwitz. According to his interpretation, both from a historical and structural point of view, European culture has been traversed by a (self) destructive drive that should be placed in debt to the interpretations of Sigmund Freud. Under the pressure of relations between Athens and Jerusalem in an era of the epilogue that is giving way to the dawn of another to be qualified as a transhumanist, it is necessary to map some of the consequences of the conflicting actuality of the notion of tradition itself. Having in consideration the symbols of the castle of Bluebeard and the destruction of Troy, our proposal takes into account the need for grief without incurring the devastating oblivion of barbarism.
