The loss of faith in transforming stories

Skjermbilde 2014-02-24 kl. 18.24.10The children of postmodernity know that they are making it up. Whether it is the ironic liberalism of tenured professors cleverly “constructing” reality or whether it is the popular peddling of New Age “spiritualities,” it is a matter of telling fairy tales. And no matter how many fairy tales we tell, when we know that they are fairy tales, they cannot re-enchant(re-fortrylle) the world”

Neuhaus 2004, p. 104
