ResumenEducation allows people to know and to be able to know. It could be right to consider knowledge as a vital part for our well being as food, shelter, and security. Those are basic requirements for survival. But the interesting question for our paper is if there is a limit, if there should be something that should be kept in secret. That would imply the acceptance of a moral and political nature of knowledge. Here we find how this question can become difficult. We know the need to preserve some personal information in secret. If not basic elements of human life such as privacy and intimacy would disappear. On the other hand it is not easy to claim the right of intimacy in the era of computers and networks. Suspicious as we are, we tend to accept the evidence of an extremely invasive screening in our life, whereas we like or not.
