Mankind been faced with such an uncertain tomorrow and such gloomy colours very few times in history. We all ask ourselves: what will happen? Peter Frase answers this question with an energetic, polemical, radical, profound and visionary book. Four Models of Future has the rare merit of being, in a short space, both an illuminating read and a political gesture capable of tracing a new path.
Frase deploys the tools of social sciences and speculative fiction. He wonders about the impact of automation and how we will tackle the scarcity of resources and social inequalities. In a whirlwind tour through science fiction, social theory and new technologies, he proposes four possible models, in search of the right equilibrium between promises of possible well-being and the fear of social and economic barbarism into which we could all collapse.
