LANGUAGE AND RIGHT OF MAN BECOME ‘SORCERER’S APPRENTICE’ IN POSTMODERNITY: THE NEW PREDICTIVE HERMENEUTICS DIRECTION AT THE TIME OF THE APOCALYPSE ‘POST-INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTIONS’
Published: 11 Aug 2016
Abstract: This research takes into consideration a specific part of Günther Anders thought, ‘The obsolescence of Evil’, in particular: ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice metamorphosed’. In ‘The Obsolescence of man, vol. II’, the destruction of human life is perpetrated by the man transformed in a ‘Sorcerer’, without a master of the atomic arrangement. In the industrial revolution era, this is a negative result for excellence, the maximum point of ‘Promethean gap’. The objective of this research is to move the reflection from Anders philosophical view to a law philosophical perception, searching for legal responses to the postmodern ‘logos’ that seem to have removed the central position of human nature; the logos is now free of the nomos. Is it possible an hermeneutic way, searching human nature over its obsolescence due to the modern power of products and machines? Over the ‘Promethean gap’, thanks to law and philosophy?
Keywords: sorcerer’s apprentice, logos, nomos, obsolescence, human metamorphosed, predictive hermeneutics
