Sumario: Both spatial mobility and change of settlements embody the necessary conditions for crossbreeding (mestizaje). Day after day, the relevance of the contents, proceedings, attitudes and values of the so -called “cross-cutting” subjects in the curricula seem more obvious, among them, “Intercultural Education”. This “cross-cutting” nature nurtures itself precisely from the fundamental elements that Henri van der Leer called “twentieth-century humanities”. Nowadays, three social processes are revitalizing the problem: migration movements and their consequences, the flourishing of nationalism and cultural entrenchments and the self-asserted appearance of a new world made up of information that, similar to a black hole, seems to absorb everything in a hitherto unheard of globalization. In this situation of generalized intercultural contact, the encouragement of a plural and open mentality becomes a basic education goal. To develop that mentality I propose six content organizers, six frames to foster attitudes, six criteria on which to build strategies, positions from which the value of social understanding among different citizens can be unraveled.
