Chance is All That is Left

“The sands of Kantian rationality are running out in the West. People who depend on the human mind to shape nature’s configuration are in an unenviable position when they come to believe, after decades of being taught otherwise, that reason is a weak and uncertain reed on which to lean. If everything depends on rationality and reason is dead, then there is only chance. That is when Tyche, the goddess of fortune, comes into her own. Daniel Bell is on the right track in seeing tychism—a reality dominated by unknown forces—making a resurgence. “When life has grown arbitrary one becomes obsessed with, and prays to, chance.” (Herbert Schlossberg, Idols for Destruction, p. 166).
