Richard David  Precht - Hunters, Herdsmen, Critics


The future is not coming – we are making it

The fact that the world is changing at a breath-taking pace has become common knowledge. But how are we reacting to it? Some people are welcoming the digital future with appalling naivety; others are vociferous in their warnings about the dictatorship of digital companies in Silicon Valley; and then there are those who would rather go back to the past.

Richard David Precht has sketched out a picture of a desirable future in a digital age. Would we lose out if the achievement-oriented society we know now were to come to an end? As far as Precht is concerned, it would be an opportunity for us to live more fulfilled and self-determined lives in the future. For this to happen, however, we must set the course now for a systematic change of our social system. After all, the future is not coming – we are making it. The question is not: How are we going to live? But rather: How do we want to live?

"The discussion Precht is calling for is indeed overdue."
