Futurology is the Wikipedia-privileged - but somewhat outdated name for what is more frequently referred to in the last few decades as futures studies. Futures studies is a transdisciplinary field focused on medium to long-term futures[disambiguation needed]. While the dominant methods of the sixties and seventies involved extrapolating present technological, economic or social trends, or by attempting to predict (forecast) future trends these methods have been superseded by critical/normative or preferred futures and civilisational or cultural/interpretive futures.[1] More recently two new approaches to futures studies have emerged: emancipatory/activist and integral/holistic futures[2][3]
