Is future studies a science or an art?

This is the title of an interesting Disinformation article by Alex Burns of the Australian Foresight Institute. It looks at the legitimisation of future studies as a profession and how much science or art is involved. Unfortunately one needs a vocabulary featuring words such as telos and hermeneutics to get the best out of it so, despite the interesting subject matter, my eyes started glazing over half-way through. Worth a try though. There's a PDF version which doesn't have the links but also lacks the distracting animated gifs.
