любопытный семинар существует в Колумбийском ун-те

The Future, as History
This undergraduate seminar explores how people have thought about their future and tried to change it. It examines the philosophical aspects of studying history and the future, and how they are related. It begins with the origins of future thinking in eschatology and millenarian movements, the enlightenment challenge to revelation and religious authority, and fictional accounts of utopia and dystopia. Classic texts and scholarly analyses will illuminate modern approaches to the future, such as socialism, imperialism, and “modernization” theory, and areas where they have had a particular impact, including urban planning, eugenics, and space exploration.
