Overview Edit

The American Academy of Arts and Sciences formed its Commission on the Year 2000 in 1965 "to anticipate social patterns, to design new institutions, and to propose alternative programs." The results of the Commission's work appeared in 1967 in a special issue of Dædalus, the journal of the Academy.

The volume consisted of "working papers," prepared by the Chairman of the Commission, Daniel Bell, twenty-three memoranda written by such scholars as Daniel P. Moynihan, Erik Erikson, Ernst Mayr, David Riesman, James Q. Wilson, and Samuel P. Huntington, and an edited transcript of the vigorous discussions provoked by the documents.
