Description The study is concerned with The Road, a post-apocalyptic novel by Cormac McCarthy, and with its film adaptation. McCarthy novel can also be read as a postmodern argument against the rationale of modernism: instrumental behaviours stand opposed to ethical behaviour, which is irrational in that it disadvantages those who engage in it. The study examines why, in McCarthy, this divine, ethical principle does not go the way of the rest of the bygone symbolic system, i.e. devolves into a mere phantasma.
