This paper explains that Stan Davis' "Lessons from the Future" is a collection of essays, mainly selections or essay excerpts from his previous work. The author points out that, in most of Part One ("Ideas"), Davis breaks down the process of thinking, especially the need to identify the question and the ideal area for future direction, which helps the individual focus his or her thoughts. The paper relates that, where privacy was the greatest concern for the information economy and pollution was the greatest threat in the industrial economy, ethics will cause the most problems and necessitate new solutions in the bioeconomy.
From the Paper:"Explaining the "architecture" of information, Davis outlines form and function in relation to information. The form of information includes the shape and how it is structured. The function part refers to the activities carried out for the sake of information. Information in the current economy comes in the four forms of data, text, sound, and image. These inputs make the senses of sight and hearing more important than the others. Davis suggests that, in the future bioeconomy, the other senses may play a greater role."
