درست همانطور که جانشتاینبک در کتاب خوشههای خشم از تقابل دو موج از تمدن انسانی، یعنی نخبگان کشاورزی جنوب آمریکا با نخبگان صنعتی شمال آمریکا که به محو کامل موج اولیها منجر شد سخن گفت، تافلرها در این کتاب از رویایی تمدن موج دوم صنعتی با تمدن موج سوم اطلاعات و انفورماتیک سخن میگویند.

به سوی تمدن آینده یک کتاب تخریبگر و انقلابی است و از فروپاشی کامل ساختار قدرت سنتی و جایگزینی آن با یک 'چیز' جدید صحبت میکند.

تافلر میگوید موج اول تمدن انسانی، جامعه کشاورزی بود که برای هشت هزار سال، موج مسلط بر جامعه جها

دیدگاه های سه گانه آینده بشری:
۱. دیدگاه فرانسیس فوکویاما (ژاپنی): غلبه تمدن لیبرال دموکراسی بر سایر تمدن ها؛ پایان تاریخ
۲. دیدگاه ساموئل هانتیگتون (آمریکایی): برخورد تمدن غرب با تمدن اسلام – کنفوسیوس
۳. دیدگاه الوین تافلر: درگیری عمیق و همه جانبه بین تمدن های موج اول و دوم و سوم

موج تحول اول، دوم و سوم:
۱. موج اول: انقلاب کشاورزی؛ هزاران سال طول کشید.
۲. موج دوم: تمدن صنعتی؛ از قرن هفدهم شروع شد و سیصد سال طول کشید.
۳. موج سوم: اطلاعات و ارتباطات؛ چند دهه است که جریان دارد.

به عقیده تافلر، درگیری اصل

Lo primero que tengo para decir es que este libro tiene más de veinte años. Eso quiere decir que nuevamente caí en eso de "no leer libros de más de cinco años, salvo que sean hiper clásicos". Pero esta vez valió la pena. Era de esperar, todo lo otro que fui leyendo de este muchacho es muy bueno, este libro no es la excepción. Es increíble la descripción que hace de la sociedad, se adelanta muchos años con sus ideas (lo que cuenta del futuro de la familia, o de la democracia, es muy bueno). Expli ...more

I loved The Third Wave when it came out. I was in high school and that was my book. I took it to heart and got a technical degree and lived my life. Powershift wasn't bad either, but wasn't as much a building block as Third Wave. In this short book, Creating a New Civilization, the Tofflers really just take some chapters from their four earlier books and try to weave them together to explain the discontinuities in our modern world, circa 1995. But they leave out the explanations. Instead, you ge ...more

This brief, 100 or so page, book serves as a primer for Alvin and Heidi Toffler's futurist philosophy. The premise is that there are three great waves of human change - the agricultural revolution, the industrial revolution, and now the information revolution. Since their 1980 work, "The Third Wave," the Toffler's have been observing how advances in communication and information technology have been making the world smaller and progressively globalized. The authors discuss the implications of th ...more
