We are on the cusp of a sweeping revolutionâone that will change every facet of our lives. The changes ahead will challenge and alter fundamental concepts such as national identity, human rights, money, and markets. In this pivotal, complicated moment, what are the great questions we need to ask to navigate our way forward?
David Rothkopf believes in the power of questions. When sweeping changes have occurred in historyâthe religious awakenings of the Reformation; the scientific advances of the Age of Exploration; the technological developments of the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, and the Industrial Revolutionâthey have brought with them, not just new knowledge, but provoked great questions about how we must live.
With the world at the threshold of profound change, Rothkopf seeks the important questions of our timeâones that will remake the world and our understanding of it. From the foundational questions: Why do we live within a society? and What is war? to modern concerns such as Is access to the internet a basic human right? The Great Questions of Tomorrow confronts our approach to the future and forces us to reimagine fundamental aspects of our livesâidentity, economics, technology, government, war, and peace.
