520    This volume presents a selection of the Proceedings of the
       Workshop on Anticipation, Agency and Complexity held in 
       Trento (Italy) on April 2017. The contributions contained 
       in the book brilliantly revolve around three core concepts
       : agency, complexity and anticipation, giving precious 
       insights to further define the discipline of anticipation.
       In a world that moves increasingly fast, constantly on the
       verge of disruptive events, more and more scholars and 
       practitioners in any field feel in need of new approaches 
       to make sense of the complexity and uncertainty that the 
       future seems to bear. The theory of anticipation tries to 
       describe how possible futures are intrinsically 
       intertwined with the present.
