The founding father of modern futurism, if there is one, may well be a mild-mannered German professor who,
as early as the mid-1940s, began speaking and writing about the need for what he termed "futurology."
... Flechtheim argued that universities ought to teach about the future.
Even if systematic forecasting did no more than unveil the inevitable, he asserts, it would still be of crucial value.
