Abstract

The debate on “magical thinking” opened by the CENSIS 2021 Report and focused on the diffusion of irrationalistic and anti-scientific topics appears inflyed by a background vice because it does not see that further dimension of irrationalism that is linked to capitalist naturalism and scientist neopositivism. The emergence of these positions is the consequence of an organic crisis that dismantled the consolidated forms of the expression of the established dominant classes. A great transformation of international force relationships has indeed determined a phase leap, under the foundations the capacity of the leading groups to produce consensus. Only a new hegemony or a counteregemony, and not a simple lighting operation can counter these drives. However, the cultural defeat, as well as politics, of the progressive trends does not allow it to be optimistic, while the cultural and ideological land of modern democracy seems to fall.
