Futurist Toffler as a multidisciplinary thinker

Alvin Toffler is often described as a sociologist, but his masterpieces suggest that he is actually a multi-disciplinary thinker who integrates sociology, psychology and history into a grand framework of futurism. Of course, for Toffler, the history of scientific and also technological changes is economically , politically as well as socially transformative. In his magnum opuses, Toffer also outlines and explores the forms of reactionary resistance to progressive changes on a really global scale. It is Toffler himself who uses the word "reactionary" frequently in his still-very-useful books, like Future Shock, Third Wave and Powershift.

Toffler again offers insights into future world
