Abstract At times, the age of globalization is interpreted as a reproach in respesect to the past of human race, such a radical censure that everything which was previously believed or done is made irrelevant, thus resulting in an irrelevance of the historical narratives as well as other forms of memory transmition. Parallelly, it is also accepted as an ineradicale given background of human condition of our days the fact that a twist of practices and knowledge, more or less aimed at financial efficiency, has taken the upper hand in the articulated and complex cultural identity of our race, to such an extent that it imposes strong constraints to future development of the human knowledge. The image of oneself that every individual tries to affirm in respect to others is inspired on the largest autonomy and personal freedom; identity cultures that modern societies, based on the rights of independence and mutual respect, recognize and contribute to formulate a modern idea of adult age.
