Toward the Institutionalization of Change. Working Paper No. 11.
Wilson, Albert; Wilson, Donna
In connection with plans for the publication of an annual series of reports on the "Future State of the Union," conceptual problems of such an undertaking are explored and some of the features to be included are examined. Philosophical prerequisites discussed include a model of change; a cybernetic model; some social indicators for change; and values, preferences and goals. Potential features of the proposed yearbooks explored include technological and environmental forecasts, discussions of highly predictive societal development, and surveys of critical situations and needs, and societal options.
