    • Abstract:
      Western science, from the Renaissance onwards, and above all since the Enlightenment, has developed by progressively differentiating itself from the symbolic and mythical ways of thought characteristic of traditional Society, to which it opposed a methodology based on the rational and quantifiable. Linearity, subject/object dualism, a dialectic based on the principle of identity rather than contradiction, the exclusion of every possible transcendence of the world of sensory experience--all in the name of the human mastery of nature: these are some of the pivotal features of the ideology of science which are worth recalling because they have also influenced the development and specialization of the so-called human sciences. However, it appears that while on the one hand the results of the natural and mathematical sciences seem to be undermining the whole epistemological edifice of exactitude and quantitative reduction of the world, on the other, the human sciences are indicating the non-realizability of that which we can consider, at this point, the great positivist Utopia.
