Abstract:

The theme of this paper, which is really part of a larger general subject that might be called The Quality of Life in the Future, will be discussed in terms of normative planning. Without dwelling on preliminaries, during which definitions would need to be established, assumptions ordered, and clarifications--semantic as well as logical--provided so that the argument following can be glued together as tightly and neatly as possible, this discussion will move directly to the somewhat special perspective of planning. Such a perspective may help to organize a number of surrounding points into a pattern, in ways that are not always obvious and in terms of a frame of relationships that may lead to some interesting conjectures.
