Moore, Thomas, The Re-enchantment Of Everyday Life
New York, 1996: ISBN 0060172096
Many of our scientists, politicians, and business people are ardently at work building the cathedrals of their own religion of secularism, and in response, religion in its desperation is falling apart or becoming defensive and reactionary.
Yet for all the problems that science and technology present to a world in need of soul, they are not the cause of our disenchantment. They are both full of magic, and I’m certain that magicians of the past would have readily appropriated many of the methods and discoveries of science along with the accompanying technologies. The tendency of reason and science to take up too much room in modern life is just another symptom of disenchantment. The root problem is not science. It is religion.
