This chapter draws on the ideas of Karl Marx and the more recent contributions of Antony Giddens and Paul Pierson to argue that if people are to understand the present and shape the political future, they need a sense of time and historical context. The discussion applies this to the development of welfare policies. It also identifies changes in the understanding of time itself, linking these to changes in both political theory and practice.

Keywords:   Karl Marx, Antony Giddens, Paul Pierson, welfare policies, political future, political theory
