We do not learn for life, but for school." These irony-laden words end Seneca the Younger's 106th Moral Letter to Lucilius. Although the quote comes from antiquity, the content and the associated question of why we learn is an omnipresent topic for our society today. Knowledge has significant value in our society, and is becoming even more important due to economic developments and socio-cultural changes. In this regard, the increasing importance of the internet represents a particularly large change and challenge. Digital technologies provide faster and easier access to knowledge; our knowledge pool is growing faster and faster. This leads to knowledge increasingly losing relevance, and at the same time findings are called into question. The lecture deals with these issues, and the consequence that we must get used to a process of lifelong learning.
