Der Band verknüpft zwei Forschungsfelder, die seit einiger Zeit große Aufmerksamkeit in den Geschichts- und Sozialwissenschaften finden: Sicherheit und Zukunft. Epochenübergreifend zeigt er, wie Vorstellungen von Sicherheit und Zukunft zusammenhingen und politische Dynamik entfalteten. Denn Sicherheits- und Zukunftsentwürfe betrafen immer auch Fragen der Macht. Die geschichts- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Fallstudien reichen von religiösen Endzeitdiagnosen und präventivem Zukunftsmanagement in der Frühneuzeit bis zu Bemühungen um eine gemeinsame Sicherheit im internationalen Völkerrecht, von Sicherheit vor Seuchen bis zu Diagnosen eines nuklearen Weltuntergangs im Kalten Krieg, vom Sicherheitsdilemma staatlicher Überwachungspraktiken in einem liberalen Staatswesen bis zu Diskursen über Nachhaltigkeit und internationale Wettbewerbsfähigkeit.

Hoffnung, Erwartung, Wunsch, Vorausschau und Prognose - kaum etwas bewegt das menschliche Bewusstsein mehr als der Vorgriff auf die Zukunft. Dieses Buch fragt nach den Grundlagen, Bezügen und Horizonten, in denen wir Zukunft denken. Der Band versammelt Beiträge, die mittelalterliche Endzeiterwartungen, Finanzmarktprognosen, den chinesischen Fortschrittsglauben, südostasiatische Ewigkeitskonzepte sowie städtebauliche, sprachliche und philosophische Zukunftsentwürfe thematisieren. Diese interdisziplinäre Zusammenschau gewährt eine vertiefende Einsicht in die mentale Repräsentation und die kulturelle Logik der Zukunft.

Learning from the future. A neat, eye-catching turn of phrase, that. A good title for a book, no doubt designed by some marketing sort to grab your attention, because, of course, it's a statement of the impossible. You can't learn from the future, because it hasn't happened yet. Or can you? Mary Hykel Hunt, functioning intuitive and researcher in the field of human consciousness, reveals that it's entirely possible to access your future AND that it's based on good, demonstrable science. Yes, it'll require some considerable shift in your conventional thinking, because reality is not as we see it, as science is increasingly and convincingly revealing

An inquiry into the limits of the possible.

The range of this enthralling book is immense: from the re-making of the human mind to the vast reaches of the universe. Newly revised, even the remarkable events of the last decade have affected few of the exciting speculations by Arthur C. Clarke - a scientist whose expert and wide knowledge is matched only by his brilliant imagination.

In an age of globalization characterized by the dizzying technologies of the First World, and the social disintegration of the Third, is the concept of utopia still meaningful? Archaeologies of the Future, Jameson's most substantial work since Postmodernism, Or, the Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism, investigates the development of this form since Thomas More, and interrogates the functions of utopian thinking in a post-Communist age. The relationship between utopia and science fiction is explored through the representations of othernessalien life and alien worldsand a study of the works of Philip K. Dick, Ursula LeGuin, William Gibson, Brian Aldiss, Kim Stanley Robinson and more. Jameson's essential essays, including "The Desire Called Utopia," conclude with an examination of the opposing positions on utopia and an assessment of its political value today.Archaeologies of the Future is the third volume, after Postmodernism and A Singular Modernity, of Jameson's project on the Poetics of Social Forms.

The Curriculum of the Future

From the "new Sociology of Education" to a Critical Theory of Learning

In this important book the author looks back on the 'knowledge question'. What knowledge gets selected to be validated as school knowledge or as part of the school curriculum, and why is it selected? Looking forward, Young discusses how most developed countries have high levels of participation in post-compulsory education, but still use curricula designed for a time when only the elite pursued further education. He argues the need to rethink post-16 education to shift focus onto vocational education, school-work issues and lifelong learning.

Social scientists from various disciplines discuss and offer predictions about the future. Predicting the future is notoriously difficult. But systematic analysis leads to clearer understanding and wiser decisions. Thinking about the future also makes social scientists focus their research into the past and present more fruitfully, with more attention to key predictors of change. This book considers how we might think intelligently about the future. Taking different methodological approaches, well-known specialists forecast likely future developments and trends in human life. The questions they address include: How many humans will there be? Will there be enough energy? How will climate change affect our lives? What patterns of work will exist? How will government work at the local, national, and world level? Will inflation remain under control? Why have past forecasts been so bad? The book concludes with a discussion of the intellectual and historical context of futurology and a look at the accuracy of predictions that were made for the year 2000. Jed.
