Laudato Si - Clarification

In Para. 121 the document states, “We need to develop a new synthesis capable of overcoming the false arguments of recent centuries.”

What is:

1)the new synthesis
2) false arguments.

Thanks and God Bless

The new synthesis does not yet exist. Francis is urging its’ development.

Francis describes the “false arguments” of the “Technocratic Paradigm” and “Modern Anthropocentrism.”

Thank you for your reply.

What form will the synthesis take? To whom is the Pope referring? Who will start this synthesis?
