Abstract

This is a search for some general principles of a long-range educational policy. The year 2000 is only 25 years away. This is neither too near, nor too distant a future. But educational planning is customarily a short-range affair and it usually takes up only the more technical aspects of education. An effort is made to define the nature of the concept of the future and the methods and uses of futurology, the science of the future. Some views of the methodology of scientfic forecasting are discused, along with their philosophical implications. There are two ways of approach to a comprehensive critique of the present state of education : The sociological or anthropological approach, meaning an evaluation of education from the viewpoint of another culture, and the philosophical-psychological approach, meaning evaluation of education in the light of modern philosophical thinking, e.g. existentionalism. The right method of educational forecasting is the most comprehensive one, based on historical, sociological, cultural and psychological aspects expected to be active in the future. This is an enormous task, not yet challenged by anyone in this country. The author thinks that the universities, or, more precisely, the schools of education should do the basic research needed to shape a sound long-range educational policy. But such an activity will have to be part of a more inclusive futurological effort. The goals, the curriculum and the structure of education for the year 2000 are discussed in some detail. Some principles are tentatively offered. In view of the universal crisis in education and the universal need for a solution for it, there is some hope, that these futurological efforts will not be in vain and futurology will prove itself to be "the history of the future".
