Every morning brings us news of the globe, and yet we are poor in noteworthy stories. This is because no event comes to us without being already shot through with explanation. In other words, by now almost nothing that happens benefits storytelling; almost everything benefits information. Actually, it is half the art of storytelling to keep a story free from explanation as one reproduces it...

If the other is a source of knowledge, the reciprocal is immediate. I am, too, whatever my temporary social position, whatever the ruling that the school institution has pronounced on my account, I, too, am for the others an opportunity for learning. Through my life experience, my professional background, my social and cultural practices, and since knowledge is coextensive with life, I offer knowledge resources to a community.

I have an image, a position, a dignity, a personal and positive value within the Knowledge Space.

All humans have the right to be recognized as an identity of knowledge.
