The issue of the future is one of the biggest human issues. Since the beginning of its history, mankind has been trying to predict the future, from weather conditions to predicting the events of people's lives. As human mentality became more complex and human societies became more civilized, the issue of the future took on more complex dimensions. In general, it is possible to distinguish two different types of attitude towards the future, or in general, two types of "future". First, the meaning of the term "future ahead" (both in the short-term and long-term sense) is the idea that a person has of the state of a certain issue in a certain time or period of time. And there is also a special idea of the future, which means the final destiny and destiny in general. This kind of future is the end of history. The main question of this research is what are the futuristic elements of Hegel's thought? According to the research method which is based on documentary and library studies based on the first-hand works of Hegel and his followers, It was found that: Hegel's view of the future is dialectical according to his scientific method. He believes in historical essence and sees everything as historical. Also, the fundamental elements of Hegel's thought about the future are: existence and identification, causality, interaction, freedom, plasticity, time, dialectics, and the philosophy of history.
