Abstract 

Within the world economic context, the “spiritual value” in Bernard Stiegler’ terminology (2005) seems to be losing ground to the detriment of the “libidinal economy”, to use an expression belonging to the same author; this economy is characterised by consumerism, speculation, excessive mercantilism, totalitarian marketing, virtual values, greed, glaring inequality and the “reign of quantity” (René Guenon, 2008). On this background – one of disenchantment of the world, and annihilation of the old myths – older or very recent authors, the “technological utopians” as we have called them, reassure us that we are entering a new golden age – courtesy of technology – which is about to put an end to poverty, and bring abundance instead; it may also affect – to annihilation – even the human being and life on planet earth. This is why we advocate for a reification of reason, a new psychic individuation, more balance, as well as a re-enchantment of the world. 

Keywords: Value, spirit, utopia, technologism, crisis, immorality, totalitarianism, distribution, myths, post-human era.
