AbstractIn the age of globalization, societies and people are asking with the same urgency the same questions about modernity: where are we going? How did we arrive at this point? What is today the power of knowledge in the evolution of societies? What is the role and meaning of science and technology, of philosophy and the humanities in general? Today modernity does not belong to the West any more. It has become our common problem. Modernity is fundamentally a mutation of the conception, role and organization of knowledge in society.
