It has been asserted that learning to learn and learning to live together are the two cornerstones that reflect the new challenges education must face in the context of the far-reaching transformations that society is undergoing. The former sums up the educational challenges involved from the perspective of cognitive development, while the latter is a summary of the challenges related to the construction of a social order in which we can live together in unity, but retaining our identity as individuals. In order to understand the factors that have made it possible and necessary to postulate the two cornerstones in question, we need to consider the trends and the logic which are currently prevalent in the dynamics of what has begun to be referred to as the "knowledge society".
