Critiques of the ‘enlightenment’

The critique of the enlightenment has turned into a cliche, but the real issue as noted is the factor of modernity, and the mysterious modern transition that led up to it. And the real question is, is the world system better off after that transition? Much of the innovation is trial and error/experimentation. Consider kant, a flawed human being, yet who produced the key to the question of ethical judgment (we suspect, the question is almost antinomial), with a brilliant take on aesthetics. What came in the wake of this? The Nietzschean degeneration of all ethics along with the confused ethical reasoning of marxists, etc…
The marxists have a key ethical stance however on issues of the economic, disguised behind a brand of scientism.
We have suggested here a broad stance for the transition to postcapitalism: a balanced take on modernity as a whole and that is not the same as a monofocus on the ‘enlightenment’ which is in any case a broad spectrum of thinkers…
