Jeder kann die Zukunft aktiv mitgestalten. Zukunftswerkstätten - Wege zur Wiederbelebung der Demokratie. Wer sich gegen Kernkraftwerke, Massensiedlungen, Fernstrassen, Flugplätze, Automatisierung, Einfkaufszentren, Lebensmittelfabriken, Verdatung, Überwachung des Privatlebens und wachsende Rüstung zur Wehr setzt, wird als Nestbeschmutzer und Feind verketzert. Sein Widerstand hat nur geringe Bremswirkung. Deshalb müssen sich alle, die mit dem, was die Mächtigen machen, nicht einverstanden sind, zu Bürgerinitiativen zusammenschliessen. Robert Jungk und Norbert R. Müllert beschreiben Modelle von Zukunftswerkstätten und die praktischen Phasen der Werkstattarbeit. (Zit. vom Umschlag)
Die Zukunft hat schon begonnen; Amerikas Allmacht und Ohnmacht by Robert Jungk( Book )

18 editions published between 1952 and 1969 in German and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

America's most widely read and most influential commentator casts his gimlet eye on our singular nation. Moving far beyond the strict confines of politics, George F. Will offers a fascinating look at the people, stories, and events--often unheralded--that make the American drama so endlessly entertaining and instructive. With Will's signature erudition and wry wit always on display, One Man's America chronicles a spectacular, eclectic procession of figures who have shaped our cultural landscape--from Playboy founder Hugh Hefner to National Review founder William F. Buckley Jr., from Victorian poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to Beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, from cotton picker--turned--country singer Buck Owens to actor-turned-president Ronald Reagan. Will crisscrosses the country to illuminate what it is that makes America distinctive. He visits the USS Arizona memorial in Pearl Harbor and ponders its enduring links to the present. He travels to Milwaukee to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of an iconic brand, Harley-Davidson. In Los Angeles he finds the inspiring future of education, while in New York he confronts the dispiriting didacticism of the avant-garde. He ventures to the Civil War battlefields of Virginia to explore what we risk when we efface our own history. And on the outskirts of Chicago he investigates one of the darkest chapters in American history, only to discover a shining example of resilience and grace--the best the country has to offer.--From publisher description

Technologie der Zukunft by Robert Jungk( Book )

11 editions published in 1970 in German and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die "technologische Vorausschau" (Fachterminus: "technological forecasting"), deren erste Methoden und Resultate in der nachfolgenden Aufsatzsammlung vorgestellt werden, kann stets nur ein Teilstiic:k der umfassenderen Perspektiven bieten, mit denen sich die Zukunftsfor schung beschaftigt. In der kurzen Zeitspanne, die seit der Publikation dieser Arbeiten in einer Sondernummer der englischen Monatszeitschrift "Science Jour nal" verging, haben sich eine Reihe neuer Zweige der "Futurologie" entwic:kelt, die andere Akzente setzen und daher ~ndere Gefahren aber auch andere Moglichkeiten in der kiinftigen Entwic:klung hervorheben. Sie stellen die Technik als Ganzes in Frage und bemiihen sich, sie in einem weiteren Zusammenhang zu sehen. Es handelt sich dabei urn: die "gesellschaftliche Vorausschau" ("social forecasting"); die "menschliche Vorausschau" ("human forecasting" oder "anthropological forecasting"); die "umweltliche Vorausschau" ("ecological forecasting"). Dazu kommt noch die schon seit langem etablierte und in ihren Methoden wohl am weitesten entwic:kelte "wirtschaftliche Vorausschau" ("economic forecasting"). Es hat sich die Auffassung durchgesetzt, daB die Beriic:ksichtigung all dieser Aspekte und die Untersuchung wie sie aufeinander einwirken fur die Ausarbeitung von Prognosen und Planen unerl1iBlich seien. Die "Cross Matrix"--Methode von T.J. Gordon bietet ein erstes Instrument fur solche Arbeiten 1. In einem solchen weitergespannten Rahmen wird die Technologie der Zukunft anders gesehen als zuvor. Wurde bisher vor allem gefragt, was technisch machbar und okonomisch tragbar sei, so stellen sich nunmehr vordringlich die Fragen, was von gesellschaftlichen, mensch lichen und umweltlichen Gesichtspunkten aus erwiinscht (oder nicht er wiinscht) sei und vermutlich sein werde
