Our dominant way of thinking is characterised by:
1. materialistic – only the material reality is considered real; this results in an attitude towards life that is primarily oriented towards material values.
2. Mechanistic – denies immateriality and explains the dynamics of the cosmos and humans as processes that work like a machine.
3. patriarchal – is shaped in culture, economy and society by the dominance of male(ish) values.
4. rational – characterized by the highest dictate of science, objectivity.
