CHAPTER 9: THE KNOWLEDGE SOCIETY—TRANSMODERN AND PLANETARY


In this chapter, I shall show that the knowledge society is necessarily a transmodern society, and that if it does not function well it can even function very badly, it may even lead to catastrophe and to death. I will first define the four dominant paradigms (see Table 1, below)—the pre-modern (agrarian) paradigm, the modern or industrial paradigm, the post-modern, and the transmodern or planetary paradigm, and I shall add the matrifocal paradigm from 5000 years ago, which forever relativises the patriarchy, as we have seen.

Table 1 provides a synthetic view of the paradigms and their differences in various fields. This is the plan that I shall follow for the presentation of this chapter. We discover more and more that we are like an amalgam of four different paradigms. However, the modern paradigm is losing its preponderance. In addition, we are entering the transmodern period after rapidly passing through the postmodern period.
