Chapter Summary

This section presents a glossary of key terms that occur in the book Future Matters: Action, Knowledge, Ethics. Some of the terms include abstract future, conatus, dasein, divination, empty future, and future present. While the focus of social life is narrowing down to the present, the futures we create on a daily basis cast ever longer shadows. This book addresses this paradox and its deep ethical implications.

Keywords: abstract future; action; dasein; empty future; ethics; knowledge; social life
