THE FUTURIST is a bimonthly magazine published since 1967 by the World Future Society.
Edited by Cynthia G. Wagner and founded by Edward Cornish, former president of the World Future Society, THE FUTURIST explores the technological, scientific, environmental, social, and policy trends shaping our collective future. The magazine takes no stand on what the future will or should be like. We strive to serve as a neutral clearinghouse of ideas.
Each issue contains feature articles written by outstanding experts in a wide range of fields: consumer technology, business, creativity, education, economics, environment and resources, values, and more. In addition, several departments offer shorter news briefs, book reviews, and other items of interest from a variety of sources.
Among the many influential futurists and experts who have contributed to THE FUTURIST are: Gene Roddenberry, Newt Gingrich, Al Gore, Alvin and Heidi Toffler, Buckminster Fuller, Frederik Pohl, Isaac Asimov, Hazel Henderson, Robert McNamara, B.F. Skinner, Nicholas Negroponte, Helena Norberg-Hodge, Arthur C. Clarke, Ray Kurzweil, David Walker, Edward N. Luttwak, Clay Shirky, Phillip Zimbardo, Lewis Lapham, Douglas Rushkoff, William J.
