The emergent paradigm

Author: Peter Schwartz

Abstract:

In this paper those stories are called paradigms or world views, but I am saying the same thing: a fundamental shift in basic beliefs and assumptions about the nature of things and the human condition is going on. Because those beliefs and assumptions are among the foundations of human existence, when they change, radical shifts in individual values and societal conditions will follow. This paper presents the thesis that such a paradigm shift is under way and explores the potential consequences of that change.
