I made this diagram as a student in the Open University. I think the ideas behind it probably come partly from the geographer David Harvey [1], although I can't remember exactly where. When one considers how the world is changing, it's helpful to look across these different sectors:

  1. nature
  2. technology
  3. social relations
  4. organisation of production
  5. mental conceptions of the self
  6. habits of everyday life
  7. administrative arrangements


I suppose a lot of people have some sense that we are living in a transitional period, which has the potential to end badly.
