A Look at the Genesis of Foresight Studies: On Elke Seefried’s ”Zukünfte. Aufstieg und Krise der Zukunftsforschung 1945-1980”


The history of foresight studies and of thinking on the future has given rise to many books and articles, largely by American and French authors. However, unless we are much mistaken, no one has paid such attention as Elke Seefried to showing how this “non-discipline” was perceived in Germany in the aftermath of World War II. For that reason, this review by Corinne Roëls sheds interesting new light on the question — not least for the controversies to which it may give rise.
