ABSTRACT. Philosophy of the future is a platform for rethinking the philosophy of education and policy futures in education. While policy futures may draw on the techniques and methodologies of futures studies it is not reducible to this field, or to its siblings–futurology, scenario planning, foresight, or science fiction. I am much more inclined to see futures in an applied philosophical framework that is akin to what Foucault, after Nietzsche, calls ‘histories of the present’ which is driven by a genealogical investigation of value and guided by the epistemological question of how the historical awareness of our present circumstances affect what and how we know and can know.
