Knowledge Society is a recent
development
                   Knowledge has been
                    necessary in the functioning
                    of any society
                   Why is knowledge considered
                    as something so fundamental
                    to the functioning of our
                    economies?
                   The key is the systematic
                    use of “theoretical
                    knowledge”.
