The New Enlightenment

Chapter
Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 105)

Abstract

As is frequently lamented, with today’s explosive geometric growth in scientific knowledge and technology, a development underway now for centuries, we are facing a real upheaval in our view of the world and in our approach to life and its conditions. Unprecedented events like our probes sent to other planets, extraordinary inventions transforming human life in time and space like the aircraft shrinking the globe for us, instant telecommunication, and the many appliances easing and accelerating the pace of everyday life have not only transformed in numerous ways our existence but also have us on the alert for further wonders and shocks. All humanity simply expects and is in some dread of a never ending, advancing transformation of life.
