Show Summary Details


Disenchantment is a condition resulting from the unwarranted elevation of scientific and rational strategies of analysis to the level of determining the general position of people in the world. This dissolves the basic relations people have with their world and allows for the exercise of power and extension of self‐interest. He counters with proposals that would allow for the reenchantment of the world.
