The future company

A book that tackles tomorrow from a philosophical perspective has just been published

 

You need to have an idea of the future. To have a goal to achieve, objectives to accomplish. And you also have to use tools for the interpretation of reality that can lead to a correct vision of what will happen. You need a philosophy that leads to the future without illusions. This is also – and especially – true for companies.

Reading “Filosofia del futuro. Un’introduzione” (Philosophy of the future. An introduction) by Samuele Iaquinto and Giuliano Torrengo (both from the Department of Philosophy at the University of Milan), is therefore a good thing to do for more or less everyone; even for managers and entrepreneurs.

The book offers an introduction – which is both accessible and meticulous – to the most recent developments of a fundamental branch of current philosophy: the philosophy of the future, precisely. The attention is focused on the key questions of the contemporary debate. Has the future already been written or there are alternative paths that time may be able to take? Does existing simply mean being present or are there genuine real future objects? Are we truly free to choose what actions to take and to change the course of events? These questions can be transposed from an individual plane to the multiple planes of business activities. And the answers to which get progressively more complex. Starting with their own philosophical interpretation.  The debate around these issues, in fact, explores an area of intersection between metaphysics, logic and ethics, and involves different disciplines such as physics, psychology and economics. Every aspect is reflected in the actual layout of the book which takes into consideration in sequence: metaphysics, logic, travelling and the ethics of the future.

“Filosofia del futuro” is not a book that explores fashionable arguments, but a tool better to understand what is happening around human activities and then attempt to be better prepared for tomorrow.
