Perpetual Need for Human Sciences
Today’s crisis of the human and social sciences is there for all to see. This is a complex problem resulting from an equally complex dynamism that implies the spirit of the times, the interests and values orientations which prevail today. We live in an era of materialism, an era of new paganism that institutionalizes the superiority of the natural sciences and naturalizing paradigms. This article tries to show how a certain philosophical approach can contribute, on the on hand, to the dialectical reorganization of the framework of sciences and knowledge and, on the other, to the recognition of the perpetual value of the human and social sciences.
