Ethics in the age of technology. Part II
The transformations of ideologies in the age of technology: politics as more and more subordinated to economics,economics to technology; nature as reduced to raw material; religion and nihilism as linked to God’s death; history as such that the idea of progress is replaced by the one of a simple, pointless development.
Technology and the fall of ideologiesy. How politics moves from human government to the government of roles and functions. The subsumption of nature under the category of dominion and the exploitation of the earth. The twilight of religion and the secularization process. The pointless features of technology and the consumption of history’s sense.
