|mark211||Slightly enigmatic as a heading, I know, but I was just sent this by a friend and found it absolutely fascinating - it's a review of Peter J Bowler's 'A History of the Future' by philosopher, John Gray. Here's a link to the original: https://www.newstatesman.com/culture/books/2017/11/history-future-how-writers-envisioned-tomorrow-s-world||2017-12-17 09:38:38|
|Ironspider||Not sure I'd class this as 'thought-provoking', given that many of the issues he describes are probably coming around for the 42nd iteration. However, I think I'll keep an out for this when it emerges in paperback. If it's still relevant by then!||2017-12-19 04:46:19|
|dandrew72||I found it interesting. I think often, we miss the truly huge changes that shape our species. Look at history with a macro lens for example - let's say the past 1,000 years. The world in 1017 was incredibly different than it is now. As a species though, we are accustomed to viewing the world through a micro lens and thanks to social media, that lens is often zoomed in on the moment. The really big, generational changes, are much harder to discern. ||2017-12-21 15:46:55|
