SOME NEW TRENDS IN FUTUROLOGY

Mariana Todorova

Abstract: In this article I present a more unusual look at some new trends in fu­turology, for which confirmation served (me) my participation and attendance at the annual conference of the “World Future Society” held in Orlando, USA. These are not revolutionary new phenomena, but ones observed over the last several years, however they are sustainable and that turns them into trends. That is why the text is more of a pe­culiar reflection, an anthropological field work on the role and impact of futurology in different areas and public spheres. My goal is to present a kind of image on a smaller scale of what happens in the field of futures studies.
