An interesting essay that presents a verifiable fact for all those who teach at any level: the world has changed, and will continue to change, consequently causing confusion in the belief of maintaining the existing Cartesian 17th century model.
This system conflicts with the great change happening today, causing trouble in understanding the universe in a global and integral (but not astronomical) manner, therefore becoming the cause of the world crisis that abates the world. This is not just an economic, technical or scientific crisis, but mainly a moral one. Arrogance, intolerance and the desire for superiority over others have reduced the human being into an object of economic value.
Thus, an encyclopedic and materialistic vision must be surpassed by a more human, educational, spiritual, creative and transdisciplinary vision.
A summary of thoughts and experiences from a new educational perspective that considers accepting the individual as a whole, namely in a holistic understanding of the universe and the part the individual holds in it.
