Publisher Description

The received conventional wisdom within the global futurist community is that the future is unknowable. Knowing our future outlines a full theory of how knowable the future really is. Using case studies of prescient predictions of the social future from the time of the French Revolution through to the present Michael Lee argues that there are sound theoretical grounds for establishing a science of the future and accurately predicting it time after time. Drawing on mathematics, social theory, physics, economics, social biology and philosophy and referencing great thinkers from the Marquis de Condorcet, Herbert Spencer, Newton, Einstein, George Bernard Shaw, Stephen Hawking, Bertrand Russell and Roger Penrose, amongst others, Lee brilliantly presents the argument that the future, far from being mysterious and unknowable, can be understood and predicted.
