The Image of the Future

February 3rd, 2005 | Filed under: Books, Future | 1 Comment »

Fred Polak’s‘ the image of the future’ is available for free download in pdf format. To be honest I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but it sounds interesting and relevant even 50 years after its first print. Polak argues that the human condition is bound to its self-concious image of the future.

“The rise and fall of images of the future precedes or accompanies the rise and fall of cultures. As long as a society’s image is positive and flourishing, the flower of culture is in full bloom. Once the image begins to decay and lose its vitality, however, the culture does not long survive.â€? (Polak, 1973 p.19)
