Droite et Gauche, des cultures aux religions : regard comparatif sur un portrait du couple Bien-Mal

Abstract : The relationship of culture and religion is reciprocal. Cultures are under the impact of religions and these also undergo the impact of cultures. So sometimes these are the cultural elements of an ethnic group manifested more prominently in the religion of the latter, and sometimes it is the religious teachings that influence the culture. The right and left sides form an opposition which has repercussions in the two fields of culture and religion. By their existence in religious texts, this couple acquires a fairly strong religious connotation; it also has an important place in different cultures, whether monotheistic or even pagan. In this article, we will try to focus first on the origin and influence of this couple in one or other of the areas of religion and culture where a physical pattern becomes the criterion of Good and Evil. We will question its multidimensional aspect and study the specifics of this couple evoking a strong dualism. Thus we will study the mutual impacts of the religious and cultural connotations of this couple and this through the study of different cultures. In the second time, we will be interested in the sacred texts of different religions in order to identify the evocations to this dualism. We could then take a comparative look at the texts from different religions and we will dwell in particular on the Shiite jurisprudence which turns out to be fertile ground for the existence of this dualism which would serve as a benchmark between Good and Evil .
