summary Education is an authority, it is a power. The power of independence and freedom first for teachers and then for theirs students. Teachers are responsible for an intellectual formation of students, who will build the future world. The teachers decide will they become creative people or only a well instructed members of a society. We are used to treat the education as a process of discovering and extending, but it can either be a process of covering and distributing only a selected part of knowledge. In my text I am trying to present a "picture" and a "word" as symbols of two kinds of transferring information, two kinds of culture, and education. The division line goes between teaching instructions ("pictures") and teaching ideas ("words").I am undertaking that subject because of the fact, that our life is more and more dominated by consumption, subordination to technology, and overproduction of senseless information. People are loosing theirs individuality. Our civilisation becomes very superficial and "pictorial". I belong to the "books generation", probably it is the last generation for whom the books are so important. I am conscious of that, and that is why I am trying to emphasise the importance of a "word" for a contemporary world, and for education.
