Future Theory: A Handbook to Critical Concepts

Future Theory: A Handbook to Critical Concepts by Patricia Waugh, Marc Botha
2021 | ISBN: 1472567358 | English | 480 pages | PDF | 5 MB

By interrogating the terms and concepts most central to cultural change, Future Theory interrogates how theory can play a central role in dynamic transition. It demonstrates how entangled the highly politicized spheres of cultural production, scientific invention, and intellectual discourse are in the contemporary world and how new concepts and forms of thinking are crucial to embarking upon change.

Future Theory is built around five key concepts – boundaries, organization, rupture, novelty, futurity – examined by leading international thinkers to build a vision of how theory can be applied to a constantly shifting world.
