Abstract objectification and technological approaches to realities methodically lack value. This is the reason for their effectiveness and flexibility. However, such approaches obstruct value and access to the absolute dimension. How can abstract objectification, mere information and the environment reduced to a set of resources be put to work towards quality and value? This can be by preventing science and technology, know-how and information technology from becoming empowered and governing our lives.
All these structures operate with specific and, therefore, sensory and qualitative entities. Therefore, when reflecting and constructing it must always be taken into account that everything qualitative is sensory and specific. It cannot be handled adequately other than with the formal parameters used to handle the specific. In language, both at the phonological level and the semantic or narrative level, everything is axiological, sensory and specific. The same can be said of basic anthropological and communicative structures.
As long as the anthropological argument of a ‘composite of body and spirit’ or its secular version, a ‘composite of animal and rationality’ is maintained, adequate study of the values suitable for societies of innovation and constant change will be impossible. When human nature is viewed as a composite of body and spirit, key human values tend to be become immutable and aspire to be eternal. The spirit is not subject to needs, and it is thought that cultures are spiritual creations, although they must serve the body under different survival conditions.
