...to find ways to better understand the changes occurring in the world, now understood as the global problematique . The renowned Limits to Growth study grew out of the club's planned programme to explore the alternatives to the problematique driven by manifestations of stress in the world system such as excessive population, rising pollution and increasing inequality in standards of living. This study was based on Forrester's system dynamics approach. The publication of this work in World Dynamics ( 1971 ) received much attention in the press,...

...of the approach was to construct sequences of these possible futures, which came to be known as ‘future histories’. The policy implications they explored revealed that only a handful of possible futures were at all desirable. Furthermore, due to the interrelatedness of the problematique , the desirable futures required fundamental changes in the industrial culture. SRI developed a Center for the Study of Social Policy to continue the work, of which Harman became director. He went on to assess the conceptual foundation of thinking and doing that might support...

While they did not use civilizational terminology, Ibn Khaldun ( 1332–1406 ), Giambattista Vico ( 1668–1744 ), and Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel ( 1770–1831 ) definitely contributed to the civilizational problematique and to two opposing theoretical schools of civilizational study, the cyclical and the progressive.

...basis of civil–military relations is a dilemma: what Peter Feaver has called the civil–military problematique , which requires a given polity to balance two concerns. On the one hand, it must create a military establishment strong enough to protect the state. On the other, it must somehow ensure that this same military establishment does not turn on the state that established it ( Feaver 1996 ). The response of a polity to the civil–military problematique can be seen as a bargain negotiated among three parties: the citizens, the civilian governmental...

As the nuclear sword of Damocles was lifted with the end of the Cold War, many problems came to the surface that had initially received little international public attention. The former East-West problematique has been replaced increasingly by a North-South problematique, illustrated by a highly polarized distribution of wealth and resources in favor of northern and developed countries. The combined wealth of the second largest continent, Africa, does not equal the wealth of a single European country, such as the...

...narrative; and meaning – if there is to be found any meaning – must be understood as immanent in this new human existence rather than transcendental ( Lash and Friedman 1992 ). With this in mind it is interesting to note that, similarly the sociology problematique, the core problematique of IR theory has always been the paradoxical search for order under conditions of anarchy. However, for this task, sociology has not relied upon a Realist canon of classical political thinkers, but upon Émile Durkheim, Karl Marx, and Max Weber. Order, Anomie...

...of free speech, self-auditing, and self-criticism” (p. 192). The differences between the Greek and the modern subject are of course immense, not least in terms of world view or cosmology. Nevertheless, at various points in history the Western world has taken notions from the Greek experience and world of thought as an inspiration for raising certain questions (or with Wagner, problematiques ) in new ways. Cornelius Castoriadis elaborates these connections and their historical uniqueness as a “break” with the normal situation as follows: This situation, as...
