THE FUTURES OF THE FUTURE - DAY 3

'Anticipated Futures' presented by Roberto Poli.
The opposition between seeing and knowing

Roberto Poli is professor on social foresight and philosophy of science at Trento University. He has been awarded the first UNESCO Chair in Anticipatory Systems. He is also editor-in-chief of Axiomathes, editor of the series Categories, and Anticipation Science.

This third morning seminar of the summer school focused on the Theory of Anticipation, a new branch of Futures Studies that aims to provide theoretical foundations for translating forecasts and foresight into action in the present. It explores the question if there is a common ground where futures studies and other disciplines meet and work together.
