Today's society is used to the change that follows the diffusion of technologies.
Some people are raising the issue of ethics and risks involved in a scientific development led without rules nor
shared goals. Many hope that things will automatically adjust themselves and expect a better society supported by
a more widespread prosperity.
People expect almost everything from the machines, almost nothing from mankind, as if the human beings could only progress
with the support of technologies or exploit their potential only with “technological prosthesis”.
The spread of higher level of education and television have augmented, in the quantitative side, both knowledge and communications,
and made culture much more homogeneous.
We were not committed to developing consciousness of what we are, of forms of thought, of how we can improve, or what we want to do.
Philosophy has lost its meaning for most people, but has not been replaced by the search for a deeper understanding.
How will society lead the fast happening changes without developing self-consciousness and understanding of real goals?
