Summary This paper argues for the immediate use of Kansei engineering to help deal with the chaotic situation of poorly implemented and disconnected technologies. A theoretical criticism of the current industrial capitalism, together with the promotion of a new postindustrial form of capitalism, lays the foundation for an explanation of how this transition can be achieved through a proper understanding of Kansei.
