Desacralization of life

Other Names:
Absence of the sacred
Disenchantment of the world
Lost sense of sacredness
Epistemological despiritualization of the world

The dominant culture has lost the sense of sacredness in the relationship of individuals to the world around them. The world people live in has become "disenchanted", a world made up of discrete, disconnected (or unmeaningfully connected) objects, with which people are free to do with what they please. It is increasingly unclear what people should do and what their rightful place is within this context.
