9780275965587: Rescuing All Our Futures: The Future of Futures Studies (Praeger Studies on the 21st Century)

The future is the last frontier where nonwestern societies are still free―free to envision desirable futures based on their own worldviews, cultures, and traditions. Yet the discipline of futures studies, this volume argues, has abandoned its goal of exploring such diverse and alternative futures in favor of a single, myopic vision that is incapable of seeing outside the framework of western thought and action. Its overemphasis on forecasting and prediction, its overpreoccupation with technology, and its neglect of nonwestern cultures and concerns have transformed the discipline into an instrument for the colonization of the future. Distinguished contributors from a variety of cultural and disciplinary backgrounds discuss ways of bringing multiculturalism and plurality to the heart of futures studies and point towards new, decolonizing directions.

This groundbreaking text will be essential reading for all those interested in helping shape more pluralistic and humane futures.
