Abstract

Much of man’s activity has focused on dealing with “problems” in a variety of forms. The many problem types include knowledge acquisition (essentially traditional science, but more recently systemic science); the implementation of knowledge (most obviously encountered in everyday life in the form of technology); the consequences of technology in society (pollution such as effluent and noise, and the effects of technological change); and difficulties arising from, or within, societal organizations themselves.
