The vision of the year 2020 Laszlo sketches is not a science fiction account of a technological utopia, nor is it the doomsday world pictured by pessimists. Laszlo argues for a holistic approach to education, the environment, and political economic systems and shows what is involved in reaching it, and how people today can take an active and positive part in growing toward it.
In this imaginative and visionary book, Ervin Laszlo, one of the world's foremost systems thinkers, takes the readers on a trip to the future. As it approaches, will the dangers we have initiated on our world reach a threshold which will end humanity and perhaps other life?
