"The problem of the future: forecasting systems, history and Habermas"

This research examines the contrasting narratives of success and failure that emerge in a firm from the perspectives of a user organization and from forecasting scientists observing and evaluating forecasting practices at the firm against idealised norms. We propose to develop a theoretical perspective on this situation drawn from Habermas’ ideas of lifeworld/system in order to explain how different interpretations of rational behaviour in forecasting can emerge.
