Abstract

This article reflects on how much we live in a time of increasing complexity, which seemed to have already overcome all problems, given the security that confidence in scientific and technological processes seemed to have returned to us. But when these processes, as now happens in the Coronavirus pandemic, show their weakness, they reveal, as never before, their weaknesses. These are the weaknesses that result from depositing all the objective value in these processes, believing that in them was the capacity to redeem us from all our ills. Running after innovation and success at all costs, without ethics, without respect for nature and for others, without regard for the past and without anchoring the future in it, reduces the stability and structural security of the societies and individuals that compose them.
