Futures' methodologies as scientific tools for the emergence of humankind

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    A rational basis can be found for dealing with the epistemology of the various futures' methodologies. According to “Conventionalism"—the modern school of philosophy of science, the main reason for preferring one science over another is its utility, rather than its authenticity. This means that according to “Conventionalism,” which perceives the “utility” in the improvement of the psychic state and security of man as the main principle of any scientific thought, futures' methodologies, in their striving to achieve this end, is no less a “science” than any other science.
