there's a uncomplicated perplexity in our occasions. at the one hand, we ?nd a blind belief in expertise and rationalism. In our neo-liberalistically ruled global simply what may be quickly exploited and commercialized turns out to count number. the one 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 by way of a demagogic fight among cultures. One reason behind the blind belief in know-how is misunderstandings concerning the signal- cance and the appliance of theories within the reception of the so-called Enlightenment. The Enlightenment is basically characterised by means of forces: (i) the belief of society as a social agreement and (ii) the hot technology (New- nian physics, etc.). yet hence we misplaced floor: Atomistic individualism nourished the semblance of a self-contained ego sooner than man’s moving into a shared inter-subjective international. And within the new technological know-how, our buildings of fact grew to become self sustaining and indep- dent of our interventions. hence we turned stuck within the inherent dynamism of our computational structures 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 types) as literal descriptions of reality.
