Book Title:The Reenchantment of the World
Author(s):Berman, Morris
Religion(s):Hinduism
Publisher Name:Cornell University Press
Place of Publication:Ithaca, N.Y.
Date of Publication:1981
Annotation:In this critique of Western modernity, industrial capitalism, and modern science as the inevitable products of a progressive “disenchantment of the world” that began in the sixteenth century, Berman argues that addressing contemporary social, psychic, and ecological ills requires a fundamental change in worldview. Although he does not advocate a simple return to animism, Berman seeks “a modern and credible form of re-enchantment” to replace the dominant technocratic worldview.
