PUBLIC LECTURE: THE FUTURE AS COGNITIVE PROSTHETIC
MONDAY, JUNE 20, 4 – 6 P.M.
Rosecliff Mansion, Salon Room, 548 Bellevue Ave, Newport, RI
Jake will introduce concepts for thinking more effectively about the future, and the need for raising our collective foresight capacity. Human civilization will be dealing with unprecedented volatility and complexity over the coming generations. And yet, we’ve inherited a way of looking at the future that assumes consistency, linearity, and predictability. We cannot predict a single outcome for any complex system; therefore, the way forward is to better prepare for a range of possible futures.
