The author uses the comparative analysis to compare the foundations of futures studies, using examples from the academic journal Future Human Image, specializing in futures studies, as well as the physical education teachers’ perspectives which are revealed in the Journal of Teaching in Physical Education (JTPE). This journal focuses on the stimulating discussion, study, and critique of teaching, teacher education, and curriculum in fields related to physical activity in schools, communities, higher education, and sport. As a result of the analysis, the author concludes that in spite of ideas of transhumanism and other futures studies, physical culture and physical education, which move into the mass consciousness actively, retain topicality. The recommendations are taken into account in futures studies and studies in the field of physical culture.
Keywords: futures studies, Future Human Image, physical education, physical education teacher, physical culture, Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, transhumanism.
