Thought

"'If a man dwells on the past, then he robs the present. But if a man ignores the past, he may rob the future. The seeds of our destiny are nurtured by the roots of our past."

-Asian saying

In large human ecology deply goes under this. It sees to the history, the present time and the future. To work interdisciplinary is what we have to do and not missing that the history tells alot where we are today and what we should do tomorrow. Most projects just see what to do in the future. That perspective is not sustainable in the long term.

In small – emphasizing that, for Mead, people live in the present, and their interpretations of the past and the future are shaped by the present. We can consider the implications of his perspective for the understanding of the self, interaction, and society.
