Gurevich, P. S. Futurological Boom

Published in journal "Philosophy and Culture", 2012-7 , pages 4-5.

Resume: Nowadays social philosophy offers a great number of contradictory scenarios, models and prognoses. Quite often we get the impression that the history is fraught with tectonic quakes. Computers are assuming the role of oracles. The author underlines how valuable all the prognoses are but at the same time he draws our attention at Oedipus effect which means a hidden and manipulative implementation in sociology. The author also makes a suggestion that there should be many scenarios because it would provide a wide choice in social philosophy.

Keywords: philosophy, oracle, storm of the future, scenarios, politics, humankind, consciousness, futurological boom, expertise, social practice.
