Abstract:

We live in an age that is rich in experiences but also heavily burdened by uncertainties and risks. This age is also one of perplexity--if not relativism--when faced with so many contradictions, not to mention striking absurdities: the availability of knowledge and practices that seem to ignore it; abundance and waste living alongside scarcity and hunger; apparently standardised information alongside radical claims for the right to difference.
