Part of the Nato Conference Series book series (NATOCS, volume 6)


In our developed countries, society is now tending to describe itself as “post-industrial”. The main distinguishing features of this society, which have been the subject of many studies, may be defined as follows (Ref. 1):
  1. 1)

    economic sector: the change from a goods-producing to a service economy;

  2. 2)

    occupational distribution: the pre-eminence of the professional and technical class;

  3. 3)

    axial principle: the centrality of theoretical knowledge as the source of innovation and policy-making for society.
