THE FUTURE
  • From the moment people are capable to understand – through their actions and the way they think about their actions – how the way they see things is conditioned by the context they are in , they will start seeing things in a different perspective.
  • That does not mean that the context they are in will change by itself.
  • What has changed is that until now they had seen reality as something they could not change, but they now see reality with other eyes. They see reality for what it is: as a historically and culturally defined condition, created by people’s actions – and therefore as a condition in which they can bring about change through their own actions as well.
