    Summary: 
    "In this paper, I outlined a framework for understanding how and why future related biases took root in the human mind, and made some suggestions about possible ways we might be able to mitigate their effect in the context of the strategic foresight practice. My primary research methods consisted of a broad literature review covering pertinent areas of cognitive science, evolutionary psychology, management science, and future studies, as well as expert interviews with experts representing these fields. I concluded the paper with suggestions about how to integrate the findings from fields that scientifically investigate human foresight and decision making under uncertainty with the practice of strategic foresight."--Abstract.
