not an end

I thought that what Kosso meant by saying "it's not the end of the world," was simply that viewing the world through the lens of a different model was not the same thing as reinventing it completely. But Lukacs' use of "the end" confused me more. He didn't seem to be explaining the end of a scientific world view, he was embracing a new kind of world view using evidence from the sciences. I know that his use of it was a direct quote from Heisenberg, but it seemed like less of a cultural shift away from science and more a redefinition of what science, and thus the worldview, was. In that way, their interpretations of quantum and relativity seemed to be parallel and produce similar results.
