 Abstract
Essentially envisaged as a rebellious, subversive trend, postmodernism has often testified to its being highly dependent on tradition, be it only in order to debunk or at least challenge the latter. Focussing on some of the most influential critical views on this issue, the paper aims at demonstrating the way in which, in the relation with tradition, postmodernism steers clear of nostalgia, establishing the balanced status between a parasitic trend and a revolutionary one

 Rezumat
Considerat în esenţa un curent rebel şi subversiv, postmodernismul s-a dovedit adesea dependent de tradiţie, fie doar pentru a o demitiza sau a o pune sub semnul întrebării.Concentrându-se asupra unor opinii critice reprezentative, lucrarea îşi propune să demonstreze modul în care, în relaţia cu tradiţia, postmodernismul se delimitează de nostalgie şi îşi stabileşte un statut echilibrat între un curent parazit şi unul revoluţionar.
