The Power of Materialism

  • Kalervo V. Laurikainen

Abstract

Finnish cultural life is still in materialistic shackles. Structures which originated in Finland at a time when a world view based on materialism was especially respected for political reasons still determine the basis for appraisal in many questions — without people even realizing it. I have always come up against this fact when I have tried to initiate discussion about the philosophical problems of atomic physics. Now is the time for criticism.
