Perceived on many levels of overall social life, anxieties are nowadays largely due to deep changes of the technological, economic and political structures and configurations of contemporary society. Thanks to a phenomenology of both individual and social life difficulties, this paper underlines the necessity of a cultural metamorphosis corresponding to such transformations in order to be able to cope with the spread of inhuman conditions. In this perspective - and also in relation to scholars such as Edgar Morin and Tim Ingold- this paper retraces the reasons for a “new civiliza- tion” capable of enhancing the singularities and the multiple specificities of the homo complexus, namely our reality as partial and open beings of rela- tionship.
