The Landmarks of Tomorrow is a book by Peter Drucker which appeared in 1959. It describes a change in society which took place between 1937 and 1957, whereby the precepts of the Cartesian world-view no longer hold sway. Cause is no longer the central concept in understanding the world, but rather pattern, purpose and process.[1] He described this as the post modern world.[2]

It is the source of the concept "knowledge worker".[3]
