We are more likely to be pissed off or super happy than disenchanted or enchanted. For all its arcane trappings, though, this particular question is crucial. It produced a standard definition of Western modernity that lasted until the turn of the twenty-first century—when it was reconsidered and decisively challenged. This means that the world is disenchanted.
Recovery from 'mental illness' as a re-enchantment with life : a narrative study
Indeed, he draws attention to the fact that the history of disenchantment is at the same time the history of re-enchantment. As Asprem indicates, Isaac Newton is a prime example. If people today can count themselves as witches and pagans and believe in poltergeists, astrology, and so on, then either the world is re-enchanted or people have continued to regard the world as enchanted despite the disenchantment thesis. Newton did not seem to regard his theological and alchemical work as antithetical to his scientific labors. The suggestion here is that many ethical naturalists do not suffer Weberian disenchantment, because they do not make the fact—value distinction: by grounding normativity within nature, nature in some sense remains enchanted. It is not obvious in what sense Darwinians, secular humanists, and new atheists regard nature as enchanted, or at least as not disenchanted. Nor is it clear that Darwinians, secular humanists, or new atheists resist the fact—value distinction.
