Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks for putting in the effort to explain a H&A's paragraph. As it is contingent to my remark, allow me a personal reflection. I simply find that phrases such as
The ideal of enlightenment is the rational explanation of the world in order to control nature. In it, understanding is replaced by the formula.

are utterly berift of interest or significance. Out of fairness to H&A I would rather read it in context in the remote hope that there may be a smattering of argumentation to justify it. Beyond that, assertions such as this are irrelevant to my admittedly meager cognitive grasp of what is around me.
