The old renaissance man is dead. Long live the new renaissance human

The self is not a closed capsule but a shareable entity. Man, as the center of the universe, a subject against the infinite objectified world around, has an unsustainable future. Self-help, self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-knowledge are all inward-looking concepts that evolved from centuries-old self-centrism and were modelled on scientific isolationism. The new human is race-less, colour-less, sexually ambivalent, aware of the earth’s perils and increasingly open to making systemic changes.
