Summary/Abstract: Recently, the world of education lives a deep crisis. The educational universe is more strongly dominated by a relentless set of phenomena that can hardly be interpreted with the traditional categories. The crisis of formal education, and then of school, is reflected in the emergence of an even more marked distance between educational outcomes and strategic programming objectives. Against school’s anachronism as a place of learning and against educational offer’s inadequacy, the challenge consists in trying to link formal educational experiences to the numerous other educational experiences lived outside the “official” educational environment in life and in everyday’s history. In other words, it is necessary to reinterpret the educational tasks for the educational institutions, re-positioning knowledge and its paths according multiple points of view, expanding in a creative and constructive way the cognitive space and think an original “encyclopedia” of knowledge and skills in permanent advance. The first arrangement which would have to surrender and be re-founded is the human psychic reality “vision” of man.
