Sample text

Although the past may condition and constrain the present, images of the future help cause the present too, both because images mold crucial present acts and because such acts importantly create the coming present of times future. Also, a theory of decision-making underlies much futurist work. Decision-making is action-oriented and is, thus, inherently future-oriented. It tends to make future projections of current social realities problematic and to ask how such realities could be maintained as they are or how they might be re-designed by deliberate human action.

If they do not, then mass poverty will occur, because of the exhaustion of materials and food and the inability of the environment to absorb wastes. Although The Limits to Growth has been subjected to withering criticism (Cole et al. 1973), it achieved its major purposes. It stimulated debate, discussion, and more research on an important topic involving human survival. That is, it raised the public’s consciousness about the future, especially the awareness of the possibility of environmental disaster and the resource and food limitations that may face humankind, unless people do something about it.

While I am eager to acknowledge the importance of the existentialists’ emphasis on temporality and the future, I want to part company with their preoccupation with the finality of individuality. Camus’ stranger is the quintessential solitary misfit. Heidegger’s authentic Dasein may die alone, but is this any reason to believe that we must live alone? In his Being and Nothingness Sartre struggles to cross what can only be regarded as a selfimposed ‘reef of solipsism’. All of this philosophical individualism is, I would argue, an artifact of the Cartesian-Kantian tradition in philosophy.
