This chapter presents some concluding thoughts. The transformation reform proposed in the book involves multiple requirements: a new outlook on texts and human and social contexts, mobilizing knowledge and skills, and rebalancing legitimacy and authority in the production of norms and ethics. It means refusing immobilism, formalism, blind imitation (of all kinds), or fatalism.
