In recent decades, profound changes have been taking place in the world. They are marked by an accelerating pace of technological innovation and a transformation of societies towards what is now called the era of the knowledge economy. This rapid advance in scientific knowledge and the regular emergence of new technological products, especially those from the digital world, are radically transforming our way of life that can no longer distinguish between the real world and the virtual world. In this great metamorphosis of our daily life, it is important that we keep in mind the meaning of things and that we do not lose sight of our fragile humanity. While advances in technology are leading humanity towards greater control of the environment and pushing the frontiers of knowledge further and further, they also raise social problems such as sidelining a social fringe of society. bigger and bigger. While these advances bring progress, they also bring more complexity and more possibility of marginalization. Finally, we do not know whether these technological advances are accompanied by an improvement in the well-being of the individual or rather in his regression. We are, therefore, challenged to better manage the changes of our time by investing in the development of social and emotional intelligence of individuals. The way would be to further develop the multidisciplinary culture, where our consumption of the products of technology, in its classic and new form, advances in concert with our consumption of artistic products, cultural and those of the human and social sciences. Encouraging the consumption of products of these so-called soft sciences, will allow to develop a better social conscience, and a better civil responsibility.
This newspaper declares to position itself in this niche of coexistence between the hard sciences and so-called soft sciences, intends to play a role of federation between the different specialties and the different tendencies and to develop a language which allows the publics of the various disciplines to meet. It is a tool available to authors from all specialties and a space of publication and expression, broad spectrum where combines the scientific spirit to literary criticism.
It is open to anyone who wants to develop ideas, write essays, publish research results or expose the product of experiences to participate in creating a dynamic of intra- and extra-university exchanges. It is also a space for the exchange of opinions and free experiences, well documented, thoughtful and well-argued.
This first issue contains articles from several horizons, cinema, television, architecture, agriculture, thermodynamics of human societies, responding to the multidisciplinary spirit of the journal. It is a diversity that expresses the complementarity of visions, unifying wealth from different horizons. This multidisciplinary spirit is now necessary to better understand these incredible changes in our rhythm.
way of life.
Finally, this journal expresses the policy of the Carthage Culture and Science Foundation, which consists in making the link between the university world and its environment. It proposes to present in each issue a facet of the Tunisian higher education system, which may be a university, a school, a faculty, a research  center or a research laboratory.
In this way, we will shed light on typical aspects of this system that suffer from lack of legibility and visibility, in order to help link this spider’s web of a teaching and research system, which tends to be folded on itself, with its social and economic environment.
