ABSTRACT

Today on the eve of the twenty-first century we are facing an age of transition-transition to an internationalized society, transition to an information-centred civilization, and transition from a fiftyyear life span to an eighty-year life span. The further advance of science and technology in the twenty-first century will require a re-examination of our way of living and a careful effort to maintain our humanity. Education must respond to these requirements of the new age.
