Criterion’s representations acquire consistence through the three fundamental concepts: generation, spirituality and experience, which give the measure of complexity to an intellectual group that combined vernacularism’s tradition with the Occidental idea’s movement. The intellectual debate, provoked by the young generation around these concepts, highlights the conscience of elite that this generation impressed to the Romanian space, through the major role assumed, in forming a new strong culture; open to a teeming dialogue with the European intellectual backgrounds. Moreover, these concepts, as operational instruments, are the essence for understanding the functioning mechanism of the Criterionist elite, which refers not only to a generational becoming, but also to a natively spiritual tradition, which assures its specificity in the Romanian intellectual history.
