Editions of The Third Wave by Alvin Toffler
The Third Wave is a book by Alvin Toffler. It is the sequel to Future Shockand the second in what was originally likely meant to be a trilogy that was continued with Powershift: Knowledge, Wealth and Violence at the Edge of the 21st Century in alcin A new addition, Revolutionary Allwas published, however, in and may be considered as a major expansion of The Third Wave.
Toffler’s book describes the transition in developed countries from Industrial Age society, which he bal the “Second Wave”, to Information Age “Third Wave” society. In the book Toffler describes three types of societies, based on the concept of ‘waves’—each wave pushes the older societies and cultures aside. You combine those things with standardizationcentralizationconcentration, and synchronization, and you wind up with a style of organization we call bureaucracy.
The transition from the earlier hunter-gatherer societies to the agrarian and agricultural societies is also known as the Neolithic Revolution.
This coincides with the transition from the Mesolithic era to the Neolithic era respectively, the Middle and Late Stone Age. The transition from the Paleolithic to the Mesolithic Early to Middle Stone Agein turn, largely coincides toffle the emergence of the modern Homo sapiens from earlier, related archaic human species. Nearly extinct in the present-day world, hunter-gatherer societies which one might term the “Zero Wave” societies are not recognized in Toffler’s scheme.
Similarly, in the classical Three-age systemdistinctions are recognized between the Stone Age era Bronze AgeIron Agethe boundary between the latter two c.
None of these phases are clearly recognized in the Toffler scheme, in part due to the prevalence of the latter phase amongst present-day pre-industrial societies.
At present, there is no clear delineation of the latest transition, though sometimes the term Post-industrial societyoriginating from Daniel Bellis used, in addition to Toffler’s “Third Wave society”. The important point is that the nature of society relationships between people and political and economic structures are significantly altered by the impact of new technology.
That to some degree peoples lives are modified to serve the technology. Though the society foreseen is still emerging, with the dramatic transitions of the past two decades e. Cell PhonesInternetthe rise of non-national and super-national powers, etc. Among others, these included. Despite the forecast of the obsolescence of the order of nation-states, and the rise of super-national entities, what was not forecast was the emergence of a world political union cast in the form of the United States of Earth.

In the framework of the Wave Theory of Toffler, such an institution, if constituted along lines similar to present-day nation states, would represent the very archetype of the Second Wave writ large. Curiously, the potential of a federal world union cast in the mould of a heterogeneous vval e.
Toffler left open both the question of what the outcome of the transformation of the structure of democracy was to entail, as well as the question of what kind of world order would supersede the order of nation-states.
This became particularly acute in the addendum War and Anti-War which raised the issue of the “Genie out of the Bottle” nuclear proliferation and the treile of the “Zone of Peace” being broken i. Though talk about another major historical watershed on a par with the Neolithic Revolution may seem premature, given that the Third Wave has only reached its crest with the advent of the Internetalvjn of the central themes of Future Shock is that history, itself, would accelerate to the point where all of the past would catch up with the present.
Therefore, the question has been raised with increasing frequency as to whether a Fourth Wave is looming or already underway with the albin recent dislocations that appear to be taking place in the world. There has already been one book, published intitled Fourth Wave: Mehrtens, which forecasts and advocates the rise of a form of eco-globalism in the 21st century.
A closer reading of the va, however, may mistake its central theme as a partial completion of the questions left open by Toffler concerning the nature of Third Wave society at the global level, rather than another major historical watershed. However, the question is still unresolved and no official word toffled been forthcoming from Toffler.
Nor is one likely, given the quote “the sweeping synthesis [of the trilogy] Powershift. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
