The paper reinterprets the Weberian disenchantment of the world as the historical accomplishment of the ocularcentrism, the Western ideology that has established the sight as privileged epistemic medium for rational and scientific knowledge. This process has modified the social conditions of human perception, by partially ousting the mystery, in its magico-religious meaning, from the field of sensorial experience.
