Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In the contemporary "spatial revolution" critical thinking irremediably loses any remaining trust in the virtuous potential of the Technique. And therefore not only does it lose its faith in the destiny of the "working class", the collective subject to which the twentieth century looked as the cornerstone of every project of social and political transformation. Far more radically, in the "twilight glows", critical thinking loses - perhaps forever - the conviction that all conflicts and the most diverse claims can coalesce around a common project. At the end of the twentieth century, it begins to become clear that the identities of all the 'exploited' of the earth will no longer be able to become knotted together, due to a destiny based on the very logic of development. And that, before the abyss of the destruction of mankind, the horizon of Progress can only be identified with the conservation of the present.
