Whether for economic, personal, or political reasons, people have always wanted to know what the future will bring, and there have always been those who think they can tell us. A Brief History of the Future chronicles the most influential futurists over the years: Delphi's virgin visionaries, pop futurists, science fiction writers, trend gurus, and evolutionary experts. This fascinating story ranges from Da Vinci's flying machines to Mendeleyev's periodic table, Marx's political futurism and von Neumann's game theory that nearly led to World War III to Buckminster Fuller and Corbusier's visions of social change through architecture.
