The lecture of M. Bertrand de Jouvenel concerns particularly the activities of the Futuribles project on studies in conjecture, centered in Paris, France, of which M. de Jouvenel is research director. The international venture wishes to stimulate speculation about likely social and political changes, as is indicated by the word Furturibles, meaning possible futures the venture is made possible by the Ford Foundation. Other interests of the members of the Futuribles group are the problems arising from social change and the machinery for coping with these problems. Futuribles has obtained essays, from experts in a variety of fields, on such speculations as likely changes in political regimes or the future of transportation, rural society, or the City of Science. Most of the essays were published by Sedeis, the Society for Economic, Industrial and Social Study and Documentation, of which M. de Jouvenel is director. M. de Jouvenel also relates the activities of the French Work-Group, the purpose of which is to speculate on likely economic changes during the period between 1960 and 1985.
