Future Trends Program: Course Outline. (Appendix II, Futurizing the Power Industry.)
Harkins, Arthur M.; And Others
Consultants hired by a power company in the Central United States cooperated with employees to design a unique nine-month program called "Future Trends." The course, stressing the traits of man which enable him to adapt to the future, is outlined in this appendix. The course is divided into a preview and eight topic segments. A short description of the content of each segment is followed by a list of books, reprints, and tapes or guest lecturers. The topics covered include: the future of management, of learning, of the family, of health and medicine, of material wealth and social freedoms, of communications, of democratic participation, and of natural and artifical environments. This course outline is appended to a paper in the preconference volume of the American Anthropological Association Experimental Symposium, which accompanies the papers presented at the American Sociological Association Seminar on the Sociology of the Future, New Orleans, August, 1972. These two volumes are not currently available. (KSM)
