What will Happen in the Future of Human Society?

In the age of discontinuity, non-linearity and acceleration, can we predict the future?

The answer is No.

We cannot “predict” the future. But we can “foresee” the future.

By using “Dialectic Thinking”, we can foresee the future.

The Five Laws of Dialectic as follows.

The First Law 

The Law of Development through “Spiral Process”

The world develops as if it were climbing a spiral staircase.

The Second Law

The Law of Development through “Negation of Negation”

Current “trends” always “reverse” themselves in the future.

The Third Law

The Law of Development through “Transformation from Quantity to Quality”

When “quantity” exceed a specific level, the “quality” changes dramatically.

The Fourth Law

The Law of Development through “Interpenetration of Opposing Objects”

Things which oppose and compete each other come to resemble each other.

The Fifth Law

The Law of Development through “Sublation of Contradiction”

Contradiction is the driving force for the development of the world.

Then what kind of future we can foresee by using Dialectic Thinking?

We can foresee "Twelve Paradigm Changes” as follows that will happen in human society in the future.

If you are interested in the Five Laws of Dialectic or the Twelve Paradigm Changes that will happen in human society in the future, you would find very important insights in this book.
