WOLSTENHOLME and MAEVE O'CONNOR 0 Copyifh: 1975 C i h Founddon The future as a discipline and the future of the disciplines ALEXANDER KING InternationalFederation of Institutes of Advanced Study, Paris Abstract With the approach of the end of the millennium there has been a recent proliferation of studies of the future. This has been stimulated by the present rapid rate of change-political, economic, social and technological-which necessitates a prospective approach to policy planning.

It is quite true that problems of the ‘real world’ require an interdisciplinary approach. But my very point is that many university scientists have become so specialized that they are almost inaccessible to a non-expert. It is our hope that interdisciplinary contacts within the university will bring about a changed situation, making us more ready to apply our knowledge to society at large. I believe this is vital at a time when man’s future is at stake. Dror: I have no doubt about the importance of the work of the Centre, but isn’t its usefulness going to be partly a question of critical mass, in the sense that if really solid suggestions are to be provided on complex matters, a group of people working on a full-time basis will be needed?

Some ten members of the Centre have contributed to hearings arranged by the government’s Energy Council, which has the Prime Minister as its chairman. To keep members informed about the various internal and external activities of the Centre a monthly bulletin is issued. Besides announcing forthcoming events it also includes progress reports from study groups, travel reports, bibliographical notes and sometimes short papers on topics of common interest. It is possible for people outside the Centre to subscribe to the bulletin and the number of such subscribers is rising.
