Abstract: 

Adopting the modem approach that is the point of departure to what has been known as the modem rationality and in order to preserve and prove the human's superiority on nature, the modem knowledge was initiated having characteristics, such as rationality, objectivity, realism, verifiability and performativity. In the direction of subtlety and exactness of modem rationality and in accordance with the standards that this sort of rationality determines, modem knowledge continues its way through a reductive process to be settled down within a new equation of the information age. Relying on one of the well-known theories and emphasizing on J.F. Lyotard's analysis of the status and development of knowledge, science and technology in contemporary societies, the present study pursuits its purposes in the realm of education. Accordingly, in order to have a conscious confrontation with the challenges of the present time, education needs to provide a philosophical reflection within the frame of "return to presuppositions", to reduce the problems that arise from the accelerating and sometimes explosive movements within the domain of decision, also it needs to promote the political insights of teachers and students and equip them by deep understandings of knowledge issues and their relations to other domains.
