Summary: This article examines the modern ÔÇťturn to the selfÔÇŁ, in order to see if Western society is heading towards the ideal of authenticity or towards a sort of dangerous narcissism. Might it be that the right to be different and unique is degrading to a supposed right to be indifferent and egotistic? First this paper focuses on some sociological data about the increasing consciousness of self-identity and the value attributed to autonomy and privacy since the sixteenth century. In the second part, those data serve as a background to illuminate the present debate on authenticity. Finally, an appropriate theological answer is sketched to respond to the modern quest for self-fulfillment.
