Present Trends and Future Developments in Education: A European Perspective.
In these three lectures, the author approaches the study of the future with a respect for its intricacies and elusiveness, and discusses the schools of the future from social, economic, and political perspectives. The essays are entitled: The Purposes of Futurologic Studies in Education; The School in Contemporary Society: A Swedish Point of View; and, Functions of the Schools of the Future. Topics discussed include the purposes for futurology, assumptions about society at large and education, educational developments in advanced European educational systems, and the problem areas of mass communication, health, family and leisure, bureaucratization, and manpower needs.
