Are we the masters or the victims of our instinct for knowledge? Are we blind for the compulsive expansion of science? Knowledge induces production, homo sapiens always becomes homo faber. The problem is that we cannot stop the explosive and infinite development of science white the world is finite. What happened in the Far West of the United States, does happen with the whole world now: the expansion cannot pertain, the frontier is reached. This means increasing tension, as the frontier cannot yield. Psychiatrists have a blind spot for social problems, their 'third ear' does not hear society behind the problems of their patients. But the psychiatrist himself is part of the same society and he cannot withdraw from the discussion on ideology. The psychiatrist meets the symptoms of the increased social tension in his patients psychosomatic and psychosocial problems and symptoms.
