Abstract

This paper wants to propose ideas on how the knowledge can become the strategic element for growth and development of humanity in a direction of civil coexistence as a result of the exercise of responsible freedom of each person. The first part focuses on the transformations of some conceptual structures of contemporary society and on cognitive process that involves people in their daily lives, highlighting critical issues and opportunities. Then move the focus on issues concerning the social distribution of knowledge and how it influences the constitution of a human being in person. For the latter presents a critical commentary on the essay by Schütz “The well-informed citizen. Essay on the social distribution of knowledge” that tends to stress its actuality with regard to the affirmation of the necessity of a modern citizenship based on forms of responsible freedom derived from knowledge socially approved.
