Utgivarens beskrivning

1. Introduction We can add to the well-known expression of Gadamer "a comprehensible being is language" [1] another not less famous from Spaeman "the wealth of reality only becomes unveiled through the language that links us to others" [2]. Both judgments introduce the idea of what else we could try from the educational perspective in order to contribute to the solution of some relevant problems. Both theoreticians of education and educators--those who apply their energies to practice--think about the following paradoxical and peculiar stages of Post-modernity. People use efficient elements of information; nonetheless, they lose interest and motivation in understanding reality. People have access to communication technology that facilitates establishing contacts over the limits of space, and somehow over time; nonetheless, isolation and anomie are the lived experience of many people. It is paradoxical that our culture praises the value of liberty, creativity and subjectivity, ignoring that the number of problematic subjects, uprooted and lost among novelties, which is proportionally increasing with that idea.
