Roman Empire

A New Renaissance

Edgar Morin, France

(Submitted by the author)

A deterioration in quality for the sake of quantity is the hallmark of our civilisation crisis, since we live in a world dominated by a technological, economic and scientific logic. Only that which is quantifiable is perceived as real, everything else is dismissed, from political thinking in particular. Unfortunately, neither love nor suffering, nor pleasure, enthusiasm or poetry are quantifiable.
