|In the postmodern world, the transition from the unconditional trust in human reason and power to the hope in moral responsibility is justified by the criteria that have been more and more insistently formulated over the past two decades. Rationality, underlying the understanding of the phenomenological world, can be seen as an expression of the will of power, with an emphasis on its instrumental and technical side. According to this approach, reason is a threat to mankind, its aggressive function being felt not only by the instruments of technique, by machines, but by the fact that technique separates the being from its essence. Algorithmic rationality is radicalized in a powerful irrational sense, being represented as the most stubborn opponent of thought. Reasoning, like science, is based on concepts.
