Default Is Future Given?



Hi,

Here's a new book that might interest this group:

IS FUTURE GIVEN?
by Ilya Prigogine (Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, 1977)

[Only registered users see links. ]

In this book, after discussing the fundamental problems of current
science and other philosophic concepts, beginning with controversies
between Heraclitus and Parmenides, Ilya Prigogine launches into a
message of great hope: the future has not been determined. Contrary to
globalisation and the apparent contemporary mass culture society,
individual behaviour is beginning to increasingly become the key
factor which governs the evolution of both the world and society as a
whole. It is a message that challenges existing widespread views,
implicitly or explicitly, through mass communication; moreover the
importance of the individual's actions implies a reflection of each
person on the responsibilities that each one assumes when taking or
acting upon a decision. This responsibility is associated with the
freedom of thought as well as a critical analysis of fashions,
customs, preconceived ideas, and ideologies, externally imposed:
exactly contrary to the ideas of those who wish us to be "perfect
consumers" in a world dominated only by monetary wealth.

Challenging this drive towards the elimination of freedom of thought
in the individual is now imperative if we are to save man and his
planet from catastrophe, which seems to be ever imminent and
(unfortunately) irreversible.

This last book of Ilya Prigogine provides a small, disputable, but
nonetheless valuable contribution towards that end.
