The Skoptimist

Splinters of thought about the unfinished future

The future is like football - you never know how it will end. And the offside rule is as incomprehensible to us as globalization, digitization, artificial intelligence, fake news and alternative facts. So how do we approach the future? Optimistic or rather critical? Doubtful or brave? "The Skoptimist" is a blazing and inspiring appeal for your own thinking in the post-factual age. A highly creative and imaginative ride through the fog right into the future. The author appeals to his readers not only to keep an eye on artificial, but also their own intelligence and to develop it further. He deliberately leaves it open whether this "ambitious project" can really succeed. You can take a first step yourself: take this book and read it! Have fun.
