La sociedad del conocimiento: inclusión o exclusión
Abstract: In the history of every society, knowledge has been monopolized by an elite, who uses it to keep power. Limitations were set to exclude the mass from relevant knowledge. The supremacy was granted to only some and the majority were confined to physical or less paid jobs. Recently, the term knowledge society was coined to designate our current society, which seems to put at everybody´s hand such precious knowledge. With this research, we intend to analyze whether this benefit is for everyone or if it is a disguised form to continue excluding and marginalizing a large part of the society, since the reality shows that humankind has greater access to only information through the technologies of information and communication and the Internet, but, that information needs yet to become utilitarian knowledge. What we actually find is an information society that does not really ensure that it can be shared with everybody. The benefits provided by the driving knowledge of societies only provide the necessary knowledge to compete in a globalized world in which each individual, according to their abilities and skills, must find its place.
