As the twenty-first century advances, life conditions in many countries have reached a dynamic stage; technologies to deal with every aspect of life are being developed at the speed of light, and count-less individuals, institutions, and organizations, having varied and oftentimes contradictory interests and goals, are leading this development process. A “world in transition” has emerged, where impersonal, institutional, and profit-maximizing entities and ideologically radical forces are assuming the leading role in instigating change, managing changed situations, and producing transformations of immense proportions and deep societal implications. A world in transition is a world in a state of continuous change, where change transforms living conditions, and living conditions transform ways of life, causing further change.
