“We can speak of the emergence of a new type of self-education technology in the information society — computer technology that characterizes self-education’s transition to a qualitatively new level, in which it comes to be a factor of material and intellectual production. The development of technology in the information society fosters the shaping of a type of social relations in which the individual, ridding himself of economic dependency and various forms of social oppression, can, through self-education, realize his creative potential and rise to a new level of spiritual and intellectual freedom” (p.75).
