The re-enchantment of the world

For more than 99% of human history, the world was enchanted, and man saw himself as an integral part of it [integral part of both the world and the enchantment -ed].  The complete reversal of this perception in a mere 400 years has destroyed the continuity of the human experience and the integrity of the human psyche.  It has very nearly wrecked the planet as well.  The only hope, so it seems to me, is in a re-enchantment of the world.

How did we become so arrogant as to believe that the scientific worldview trumps all others, and that any culture that sees the world differently has a distorted lens on reality, whereas we take our own cultural bias as objective Truth?
