The French sociologist Gabriel Tarde is well-known for his theory of social imitation. His work Fragments d'une histoire future is less quoted as it is a prospective essay on the future of humanity. The article deals with the narrative of this history and focuses on the special writing of the end of a cycle. How do human beings react in extreme circumstances when one major source of energy disappears? How do they change their traditional world vision? What are the main values that we can save in order to ensure the revival of humanity?
