Renouncing Human Hubris and Reeducating Commonsense
Martin, Jane Roland
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v36 n3 p283-298 May 2017
The thesis of this paper is that we are now in the early stage of a revolution even more transformative than the Copernican. That great upheaval brought about a radical shift in the way men and women conceptualized their place in the universe. The revolution now under way entails a sea change in the way we think about ourselves in relation to the planet we inhabit--itself not a simple matter--and also the reeducation of our attitudes, values, feelings, emotions, patterns of behavior, and modes of living. All of which is to say that it requires us to become very different people from the ones we now are.
