By Samuel Kotz

This is often the second one of a quantity number of seminal papers within the statistical sciences written prior to now a hundred years. those papers have every one had a very good impact at the improvement of statistical thought and perform over the past century. each one paper is preceded by way of an advent written via an expert within the box delivering history details and assessing its impression. Readers will get pleasure from a clean outlook on now well-established positive factors of statistical concepts and philosophy via turning into conversant in the methods they've been built. it's was hoping that a few readers might be encouraged to review the various references supplied within the creation (and additionally within the papers themselves) and so reach a deeper heritage wisdom of the root in their paintings.

Sample text

It is difficult to predict the future development of the problems or even to establish who the problem owner is. Complex societal problems are also referred to as wicked problems or problems with deep uncertainty. The field of the Methodology of Societal Complexity is a multidisciplinary field. Complex societal problems are in several ways multidisciplined. The problem itself is interdisciplinary, involving aspects that are subjects of study in several disciplines. The content knowledge needed for analyzing the problem extends to more than one discipline.

5 Kind of Study In 1990 at the start of the research for the dissertation (DeTombe 1994) little research existed on complex societal problems, let alone on defining and handling them. For that reason the study was an exploratory theoretical study that reflects on the scientific literature of problem handling in general, with an emphasis on the analysis and the defining of complex societal problems. Twenty years later the Theory of the Methodology of Societal Complexity is better known, and there is a need for a handbook, which includes an updated explanation of the basic theoretical foundation of the field of the Methodology of Societal Complexity, and the Compram methodology, and of in real life examples to illustrate the application of the methodology.

In Chap. 13, Implementation, Ethical Aspects, Validation, and Testing of Complex Societal Methodologies, different methodological concepts are discussed. The chapter starts with discussing the use of the Compram methodology for avoiding opposition to the implementation of large technological projects in the view of global safety. 5. The chapter discusses the ethical aspects of the use of methodologies for handling complex societal problems, the validation of research of complex societal problems, and testing methodologies for handling complex societal problems.
