But vitalism has re-emerged in the social sciences in recent decades, driven by a concern to understand ideas such as complexity and uncertainty, the hybridity between organic and machine and the evolving processes of information technology and the world wide web. Lash (2006) says the notion of ‘life’ has always favoured ‘becoming’ over just ‘being’, action over structure, the flow and flux. Vitalism, Lash argues, always presumes an emergent form. In the return to vitalism as an underpinning idea used to explain life, the senses become important, an experiencing based on a sensate connection as a form of knowing.

Crediting the idea to Lévy-Bruhl (1921/1926), Jung (1921/1971) uses the term ‘participation mystique’ to describe how indigenous peoples do not distinguish themselves sharply from the environment, believing that what went on outside also went on inside of the self, as captured in much mythology.
