Origins of Futuristic Fiction

For nearly two thousand years, the future was a realm reserved for prophets, poets, astrologers, and practitioners of deliberative rhetoric. Then in 1659 the French writer Jacques Guttin published his romance Epigone, which carried the subtitle "the history of the future century." Unlike the stories of space travel that were popular at the time, or the tales of travel to distant earthly lands which had long been a familiar literary genre, Guttin's romance described human societies displaced by time as well as by space and heroes not of his own day but of a future age. Paul Alkon's Origins of Futuristic Fiction examines the earliest works of prose fiction set in future time, the forgotten wri...

The first Manifesto of Futurism was published on Le Figaro on February 20th, 1909. It was to become the first avantgarde movement in art, with the multiple aim of: changing the function of art within society, foster Italian culture beyond its provincial domains, and last, but not least extend language as free expression of a new and forthcoming society of technology. Art in life, was the deep aim of Marinetti’s poetry, which was then to expand well beyond Italian borders and well beyond artistic expression, becoming an attitude for entering the new society. The more society was developing social constraints, the more artistic expression would become free of canons to let imagination fluently overwhelm reality. The main topics proclaimed as crucial by Futurists are the contemporary most influencial topics for social stability: politics, communication and technology as well as the major movers of social change. What can we still grasp from the radical claims of avant-garde art?

Your Futuristic Future

You are destined to become that person that you are going to become. You are chosen. The higher powers have decided who you are going to become that fit your criteria until the end of your times. It is not your choice who you become since it has been chosen by the upper powers. The higher powers can choose to flip the switch in your mind from negative or positive thinking to good or evil. They possess the power to do so. The harder thing to do and the right thing to do are usually one and the same. You cannot choose how you are going to live your life as it has been chosen for you, as we speak. Believe me, goodness is in the present, as well as evil. The mysteries of the unknown will exist until someone breaks the code. Each of us has no complete freedom to choose. You already know this. Too often, humans get so tensed and stressed out due to responsibilities that they forget to take pleasure in the moment. This is where Dr. RJ Sumner, the scientist, is going to fix and change who you’ve become by breaking through the human-locked codes. Welcome aboard, my loving people.

Dawn of the New Man

DR. PHILIP DERON is a twenty-first century scientist with a very unique personality and outlook on life, who volunteers as the subject of an experiment in suspended animation. He awakens three-and-half centuries in the future, where he is confronted with two societies at opposite ends of the sociological, economic and political spectrum: Terra and FWF. They both evolved from the ashes of a Last War, which brought mankind to the brink of extinction, and marked the transition of the Old Era into a New Era of technological wonders that can mediate benevolent as well as ominous social tools, habits and institutions. In Terra, Philip is confronted not only with this technological progress, but al...

This volume, Futurism and the Technological Imagination, results from a conference of the International Society for the Study of European Ideas in Helsinki. It contains a number of re-written conference contributions as well as several specially commissioned essays that address various aspects of the Futurists' relationship to technology both on an ideological level and with regard to their artistic languages. In the early twentieth century, many art movements vied with each other to overhaul the aesthetic and ideological foundations of arts and literature and to make them suitable vehicles of expression in the new Era of the Machine. Some of the most remarkable examples came from the Futurist movement, founded in 1909 by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. By addressing the full spectrum of Futurist attitudes to science and the machine world, this collection of 14 essays offers a multifaceted account of the complex and often contradictory features of the Futurist technological imagination. The volume will appeal to anybody interested in the history of modern culture, art and literature.

Futurism

"Futurism, the brainchild in 1909 of Italian writer and cultural impresario F.T. Marinetti, was the defining avant-garde art movement of the early twentieth century. Inspired by the cities, technology, speed and latent violence of the world around them, as well as by the ideas of thinkers such as Bergson and Nietzche, the Fururists created an art and ideology for their heroic and highly politicised vision of modernity. Giacome Balla, Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carra, Gino Severini, Wyndham Lewis and Kasimir Malevich are among the artists featured here."--BOOK COVERED.
