Overview
Hope and the Future is a critically important book by one of our times' most respected and original social thinkers. This second edition includes a new preface and additional examples that more specifically address unsettling events of the last four years. From the book's back cover: "Hope and the Future addresses what legitimate hope for the future necessarily depends on. It describes how we face a growing number of challenges that require that we think, act, and relate in new ways—often fundamentally new ways. And it explores how effectively addressing those challenges will require not just fresh ideas, but a critical "growing up" as a species. "This essential book also looks at ways needed changes are already happening, and how when we are ready for them, they can seem surprisingly straightforward, indeed, like common sense. Hope and the Future is an exploration of the "new common sense" on which our future depends." Of all Dr Johnston's books, Hope and Future is written most specifically for a general audience. It is the place to start if you are not familiar with his work.
