In our neo-liberalistically ruled global in simple terms what will be speedily exploited and commercialized turns out to count number. the single opposing response to this sort of rationalism is an severe rejection of every kind of reasoning, and infrequently attendant spiritual fundamentalism. yet rather than re?ecting at the limits and possibilites of reasoning, discussion is changed by means of a demagogic fight among cultures. One reason behind the blind belief in expertise is misunderstandings in regards to the signal- cance and the appliance of theories within the reception of the so-called Enlightenment.

And within the new technological know-how, our structures of truth grew to become self sufficient and indep- dent of our interventions. therefore we grew to become stuck within the inherent dynamism of our computational buildings of truth. technology, because it is utilized at the present time, operates with some distance too uncomplicated parameters and model-theoretic structures – erroneously taking the latter (the types) as literal descriptions of reality.
