Four Modes of Foresight (graphic from page 32 of review copy)

Qualitative systems thinking as a reflexive futures practice

Advanced praise for Anthony Hodgson’s forthcoming new book

Systemic reality as a recurrent participative process (Sharpe)
  1. “wholeness as unity in diversity and diversity in unity
  2. complementarity from the mutual dependency of opposite poles
  3. relationships enabling dynamism and change
  4. order enabling a field of action
  5. significance arising from reciprocal engagement between system and context
  6. coherence arising from coalescence of essential sustaining factors
  7. manifestation through interplay of structure and process
  8. holism interweaving autonomy and integration
  9. transformation through the correlation of independent but mutually relevant processes”
