"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up."
We live in the ever-changing world that requires innovative and pragmatic approach in tackling challenges in our societies. The complexity and variety of social flows, coupled with outstanding scientific and technological developments in the 20th century, have characterized and directed the humanity towards the 21st century.
The totality of human knowledge, acquired by the previous generations, has been critically questioned with regards to its usefulness for the present-day and the future. Hence, the holistic understanding of the relationship between the human beings, society and the state became a must if we want to preserve our own essence in an automated world that surrounds us and forces humanity into a competitive relationship with the machine.
