However change is impossible without learning, just as learning is impossible without change. Characteristics of our Current Society We live in a world in crisis, in a knowledge society, and in an era in which time is fluid, nothing lasts, everything changes and is unstable.
The diverse and heterogeneous society of the new millennium is characterised by a series of internal crises in the welfare state: The major challenge facing a knowledge society is the generation of collective intelligence: According to Baumanwe have gone from linear time to pointillist time: Later, the objective shifted to ensuring that citizens were well-trained, and more recently it shifted once again to the awakening of the critical spirit.
Today, the ideal is creativity: In a knowledge society, education is the capacity to be creative in an environment of particular uncertainty, the capacity to properly manage the cognitive dissonance that gives rise to our failure to comprehend reality Innerarity, Therefore, in the world of liquid modernity, we must move away from sporadic education and towards lifelong learning.
This entails overcoming security-driven resistance: Conventionally, education has been understood as preparation for life, as personal realisation, and as an essential element in progress and social change, in accordance with changing needs Chitty, He describes education of the sort we have seen thus far as a possible problem, and argues for a new type of education: This is not an argument for ignorance but rather a statement that the worth of education must now be measured against the standards of decency and human survival.
