enchantment

“the contemporary world retains the power to enchant humans and […]┬áhumans can cultivate themselves so as to experience more of that effect. Enchantment is something that we encounter, that hits us, but it is also a component that can be fostered through deliberate strategies. One of those strategies might be to give greater expression to the sense of play, another to hone sensory receptivity to the marvelous specificity of things. Yet another way to enhance the enchantment effect is to resist the story of the disenchantment of modernity”. Jane Bennett 2001 The Enchantment of Modern Life.
