"Increasing his knowledge increases his ignorance," Friedrich Schlegel said.


"I live more and more with the consciousness and the feeling of the presence of the unknown in the known, of the enigma in the banal, of the mystery in all things and, in particular, of the advances of a new ignorance in every advance of knowledge" says Edgar Morin.

Thus he undertook in this book to patrol the new territories of knowledge, where reveals an inseparable trio: knowledge mystery ignorance.

In his eyes, the mystery does not devalue the knowledge that leads to it. It makes us aware of the occult powers that command and possess us, like Daimon inside and outside of us. But, above all, it stimulates and strengthens the poetic feeling of existence.
