Arnold Ghelen


“In the absence of specialized organs and instincts, man is not naturally adapted to a specific environment, unique of its kind, and consequently has no other recourse than to transform its intelligence with any preconceived natural condition. Poor sensory apparatus, without arms, naked, embryonic in all its habitus, insecure in his instincts, he is the being whose existence necessarily depends on the action”.

Arnold Ghelen – “Man in the age of technology” – 1957
