There are words and expressions emblematically used by our mass media every day to alert us about the way we are shaping our present and future: work 4.0, globalization, digitalization, poverty, epidemics and pandemics, terrorism, walls, risks, diversity, speed and acceleration, change, transitions, competition, innovation, precariousness, ethical and civil economy, welfare, etc.
