The Calling of Regeneration

Decoupling Innovation from Creative Destruction

Situated at the intersection of sociology, economics, philosophy, and ethics, the article illuminates the urgent choices facing society amid stark global challenges such as poverty and misinformation. It contrasts the utopian promise of “innovation for regeneration” with the darker reality of “disruptive innovation,” represented metaphorically by the global arms race. Drawing from a broad range of theories—including sustainable development, existentialist philosophy, and conflict theory—the article explores the complex socio-economic and ethical dimensions of
these choices.

We stand at a pivotal juncture with far-reaching implications for the course of our common future. Whichever direction we turn our gaze, we encounter the puzzling interplay between innovation oriented towards regeneration and the widely recognised phenomenon of “creative destruction.” While the immediate debate frequently revolves around the business domain, our curiosity compels us to adopt a more expansive viewpoint. It calls for a rigorous analysis—an intellectual endeavour enriched by philosophical and sociological dimensions—dedicated to scrutinising, contemplating, and defining the choices that hold the power to mould our collective future.

Nevertheless, this thematic consideration should be far from a mere academic exercise; instead, it ought to form a compelling account intricately interwoven with every facet of our existence, exerting its influence over prevailing economic system, global and national political configurations, individual ethical contemplations, and collective psychological dynamics.
