Nuccio Ordine goes over the opinions of great philosophers and writers whom defend the importance of knowledge, forgetting about the economic objective. He remarks the degradation of an education based only in reliance on markets.
This brief manifesto, invaluable at this crisis moment, is a warning, an attention shout, because if we kill the useless skills, we´ll also kill the possibility of a more human society.
