there's a uncomplicated perplexity in our occasions. at the one hand, we ?nd a blind belief in know-how and rationalism. In our neo-liberalistically ruled global simply what could be swiftly exploited and commercialized turns out to count number. the single opposing response to this type of rationalism is an severe rejection of every kind of reasoning, and occasionally attendant spiritual fundamentalism. yet rather than re?ecting at the limits and possibilites of reasoning, discussion is changed via a demagogic fight among cultures. One reason behind the blind belief in know-how is misunderstandings concerning the signal- cance and the applying of theories within the reception of the so-called Enlightenment. The Enlightenment is basically characterised by means of forces: (i) the perception of society as a social agreement and (ii) the hot technological know-how (New- nian physics, etc.). yet consequently we misplaced floor: Atomistic individualism nourished the appearance of a self-contained ego sooner than man’s stepping into a shared inter-subjective global. And within the new technological know-how, our structures of fact turned self sustaining and indep- dent of our interventions. therefore we grew to become stuck within the inherent dynamism of our computational buildings of fact. technology, because it is utilized at the present time, operates with a long way too basic parameters and model-theoretic buildings – erroneously taking the latter (the versions) as literal descriptions of reality.
