tural values, to integrate them into the present way of life, and thereby to envision future possibilities.
One of the weaknesses of Locke's position is that he overemphasized the importance of analyzing the cultural values of past civilizations. Although we need to focus our telescope on the past in order to understand the present, we must also focus on the present and future. Foresight is stressed by process philosophers such as Dewey and Whitehead. A combination of foresight and hindsight methodologies will strengthen Locke's scientific humanism and help overhaul education in both America and Africa.
