The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is published by the Union of International Associations (UIA). It is available online since 2000, [1] and was previously available as a CD-ROM and as a three-volume book. [2] The online Encyclopedia is currently in a redevelopment phase. [3]

The Encyclopedia was started in 1972 and now includes more than 100,000 entries and 700,000 links, as well as 500 pages of introductory notes and commentaries. The Encyclopedia collects information you problems , strategies , values , concepts of human development , and various intellectual resources.

Notes and commentaries within the Encyclopedia projects

The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential contains nearly 500 pages [8] of introductory notes and commentaries. Some of them just provide readers with usual information about the work content and its organization. Most of them, however, represent extensive reports on the exploratory work done by the editors in eight projects (also called research areas, or sections). Here are those projects, with illustrative examples of key ideas in the notes and commentaries.

Encyclopedia of world problems and human potential project

A first objective of the editors in that project [9] is to collect and present information on the following subjects: the problems with which humanity perceives itself to be faced; The organizational, human, and intellectual resources it believes it has its disposal; The values ​​by which it is believed any change should be guided; The concepts of human development considered to be either the means or the end of any such social transformation. A second objective is to clarify the conceptual challenge of interrelating such plentiful and disparate or even contradictory information. A third objective is to enable alternation between viewpoints from different cultures, ideologies, beliefs and even “facts”, As a way to become an empowered citizen. [10] [11] [12]

It is the disagreement amongst the advocates of different approaches to problems or solutions which hinders the training of any consensual strategy and the mobilization of adequate resources. That is why the Encyclopedia uses an approach that is as general and minimally structured as feasible without losing coherence and utility. The intent is to clarify the nature, extent, and interrelationships of problems and solutions. Even the distinction between problems and solutions is not always clear. For instance, the problem of urban overcrowding and the death of individuals is a problem. [13] [14]

The Encyclopedia is a database that is designed to help you understand and communicate your ideas. As a result, the possibility of focusing on feedback loops has proven to be an important feature of the Encyclopedia , and a program has been carried out to identify ” vicious problem loops “. A vicious problem loop is a chain of problems, each aggravating the next, and with the last looping back to aggravate the first in the chain. Here is an example: Man-made disasters, Vulnerability of ecosystem niches Natural environment degradation, Shortage of natural resources, Unbridled competition for scarce resources, Man-made disasters. Solutions that focus on a problem, Because the cycle has the capacity to regenerate itself, and also because several cycles may interlock, forming tangled skeins of interlinked global problems. The loop detection program detected more than 50,000 loops (of up to 9 elements) in more than 12,000 problem profiles. It is thought That a similar work done Could Be Mutually about Facilitating gold loops constraining strategy, so as to Constitute a dynamic response to aggravating gold Reducing loops of problems through a circle of matching strategies. [15] [16] [17] It is also possible to analyze and analyze the results of a process. [15] [16] [17] It is thought That a similar work done Could Be Mutually about Facilitating gold loops constraining strategy, so as to Constitute a dynamic response to aggravating gold Reducing loops of problems through a circle of matching strategies. [15] [16] [17]

World problems and global issues

That project [18] endeavors to present all the phenomena in society that are perceived negatively by groups transcending national frontiers. Those phenomena constitute a challenge to creative remedial action. Groups are strongly motivated by the problems that infringe their values ​​and arouse their indignation. As such, problems are a major stimulus driving the development of society. Although there are many problems there are. Likewise, while it is becoming increasingly evident that problems interact with one another, and constitute complex networks or systems, little effort has been made to map that complexity . The perceptions in which projects are carried out in the context of the project. The aim of this study is to analyze and analyze the results of the study. [19] [20] Or projected in the form of blame on some other social group. [19] [20] Or projected in the form of blame on some other social group. [19] [20]

Views on problems are extremely varied. Several pages in the notes and commentaries deal with that variety. Problems are agenda items for assemblies or conferences; Action targets for organizations; Issues for political parties or governments; Events or topics for the media; Markets for businesses; Sins for religions; Puzzles for science. [21] Problems can be viewed as synonymous with chaos and disorder, or as elements in an ordered array; As static or dynamic entities; As discrete or continuous phenomena; As objective things or subjective experiences; As directly experienceable phenomena or as indirect implications of seemingly innocent phenomena; As inherently comprehensible or incomprehensible entities; As the results of due process or as spontaneous phenomena. For many people in the West, it may be considered as artifacts of concerned minds, about which reason, principles, or history are relevant, while in the East. [22] Other pages of Notes and commentaries Extensively deal with the variety of point of view under headings Such As Approaches to problems , [23] Beyond the problem lobby mindset , [24] or Problem perception and levels of awareness . [25] [22] Other pages of Notes and commentaries Extensively deal with the variety of point of view under headings Such As Approaches to problems , [23] Beyond the problem lobby mindset , [24] or Problem perception and levels of awareness . [25] [22] Other pages of Notes and commentaries Extensively deal with the variety of point of view under headings Such As Approaches to problems , [23] Beyond the problem lobby mindset , [24] or Problem perception and levels of awareness . [25]

Global strategies and solutions

This project [26] aims at identifying the complete range of strategies perceived by constituencies acting at the international level.

The conventional way of addressing any problem situation is to elaborate a strategy, but given the number, variety and interrelationships of the problems, it is uncertain if any conventional strategy could be adequate. [27] In general, many groups have “answers” to the current crisis. The proponents of each of these are the key factors in determining the relevance of a society’s future. However, the focus on “answer production”, a vital moving force in society, obscure the manner in which such answers, in the absence of integration between them, undermine each other’s significance. [28]

It appears to the editors that the elements of the strategic challenge at this time include:

  • A vast and perceptible network of perceived problems;
  • A vast and changing network of conceptual tools and knowledge resources, which is not controlled by any single body;
  • A vast and changing network of agencies, organizations, groups and active individuals spanning every conceivable human interest and extending from the community level to the international level.

The strategic problem, therefore, is to ensure that the appropriate organizational resources emerge, and are assisted with the necessary conceptual tools, in response to emerging problem complex. It would be a good idea to have a good understanding of what is going on and what to do. The challenge is to clarify the conditions of a network strategy, ie an approach which facilitates or catalyses (rather than organizes) the development of organizational networks in response to problem networks, in the light of values ​​perceived in various parts of the social system. [29]

Many pages of notes and commentaries describe in details various approaches to global strategies, and their limits. Such are Strategic ecosystem: beyond “The Plan” , [30] Governance (a series of pages we carry from the Club of Rome , the Commission on Global Governance , and four others groups), [31] Strategic denial: Action inhibition , [ 32] Post-crisis opportunities: range of strategies , [33] and Post-crisis opportunities: strategies in chaos . [34] A series of pages explores how to ” Move beyond the unimodal answer and acknowledge that because each of the forms of action has both strengths and weaknesses, the key to a more effectively multimodal answer to the various unimodal answers so that they correct for each others weaknesses and counteract each others excesses . “But, it must also be asked, is integrated action of any type feasible at this time? The exploration begins with Strategic appropriateness: questionable answers , [35] and finishes with Action implications: consensus, uncertainty and action formulation . [36] Conditions for progress in strategy-making are more Explicitly Brought up in pages Such As Strategic ecosystem: Integrating constraint and opposition , [37] and Post-crisis opportunities: in quest of radical coherence . [38]

Human values ​​and wisdom

That project [39] aims at registering a complete range of values with which people identify, to which they are attracted or which they reject as abhorrent. [19] The notion of wisdom is explored as a way, an art, of dealing with value dilemmas. For instance, Complexity: understanding value systems [40] is a text interpretation of a negative interpretation, a paradoxical negative interpretation of the positive, and a paradoxical positive interpretation of the negative. Another text, Insights: wisdom and requisite variety , [41] gives a list of several sources of wisdom which, in interrelation, Viability of a complex society. [42]

Human potential and development

The purpose of this project [43] is to provide profiles of human development approaches and modes of awareness , and their relationships, as perceived by different beliefs systems, disciplines, religions, and cultures. Much of the material in this section is about the limitations of language in expressing levels of significance beyond which which can be effectively captured by words, so that, seemingly, Not know! That paradox is explored in a page of language and the reconstruction of reality . [44] Other challenges relating to human potential and development are Explored in pages Such As Phases of human development through challenging problems , [45] gold Barriers to transcend insight and social transformation . [46]

Patterns and metaphors

The purpose of this project [47] is to review the range of communication possibilities of metaphor , pattern and symbol . New conceptual tools are required to configure very large quantities of information into patterns that are both memorable and meaningful, and metaphor is often the only means to deal with complexity. [48] Moreover, exploring “new ways of thinking” in the light of enhanced mental imagery (or mental model ) is essential inasmuch as further “mobilization of public opinion” and the “political will to change” Complex to be easily communicable. [49] For instance, Limitations of dualistic thinking are well-known and holistic approaches may represent more desirable alternatives, but how is it possible to implement such alternatives? The page Challenge: transcending the “switch” metaphor deals with that question. [50]

Integrative knowledge and transdisciplinarity

The purpose of this project [51] is to assemble descriptions of the range of conceptual approaches which are considered integrative and which are held by some international constituencies to provide a key for strategic response to the global problematic. Buzzwords like “global”, “networking” and “systematic” are often used as magical “words-of-power”. Nevertheless, a fragmented, disparateness, or opposition, integrative approach, has now become inadequate or too difficult to implement. [52] In order to go beyond that difficulty, it seems necessary to creatively introduce novelties, Such as a science or art of disagreement that could be clarified how to disagree intelligently rather than in a mindful manner requiring some form of violent or repressive reaction to eliminate the disagreement as soon as possible. [53] There is a wide variety of initiatives Pertaining to integrative knowledge and transdisciplinarity , and a page like Significance: previous, parallel gold related initiatives [54] presents Several of Them. With regard to interdisciplinary relationships between organizations, problems, strategies, values ​​and human development, [1] [1] [2] [2] [2] [1] [1] an integral part of the Integrative Matrix of Human Preoccupations . [56]

Transformative approaches to social organization

The purpose of this project [57] is to provide a context for the presentation of new approaches to the challenges highlighted in the other projects. The emphasis is on configuring information in new ways, through a variety of accessible techniques, so as to allow easy navigation through complexity , and so to evoke imaginative insights in response to such complexity. [19] [58] The Overview [59] page presents about forty Of Those approaches or techniques, Including interactive database use, q-analysis , visualization information , artistry confidence , tensegrity organization, I Ching ,

Contributors

The project was originally conceived in 1972 by James Wellesley-Wesley, [60] who provided financial support through the foundation Mankind 2000, [61] and Anthony Judge , by whom the work was orchestrated. [62]

Work on the first edition with Mankind 2000, matching those of the UIA . The publisher Klaus Saur , of Munich, provided funds, in conjunction with those of the UIA, for work on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th editions. Seed funding for the third volume of the 4th edition was also provided on behalf of Mankind 2000. [63] In the nineties, Website and make progressively available for free the Encyclopedia databases as from the 1994-1995 edition. In turn, this proven knowledge management capacity enabled the UIA, on the initiative of Nadia McLaren A consultant to the ecologist who has been a primary editor for the Encyclopedia , [64] to successfully instigate two multi-partner projects funded by the European Union, with matching funds from the UIA. The work done through Those Two projects, Ecolynx: Information Context for Biodiversity Conservation [65] (Mainly) and Interactive Health Ecology Access Links , [66] Eventually resulted in what amounted to a fifth, web-based, edition of the Encyclopedia in 2000 . [67] in Their Own ways, two other persons in Particular Effectively supported the project over the years: Robert Jungk of Mankind, 2000, and Christian de Laet [68] of the UIA.

The Encyclopedia was the fruit of a continuing process of documents gathered from many of the international organizations profiled in the Yearbook of International Organizations . Many of the UIA and UIA documents have been published by the UIA, and many of them have been submitted to the Encyclopedia . FAO, ILO, UNICEF, UNESCO, UNCTD, WHO, Commonwealth Secretariat, Council of Europe, OECD, World Bank group. In addition, the United Nations Library in Geneva facilitated access to other material over two decades. [69] [70] The Institute of Cultural Affairs International was contractually associated with one and other aspects of the Encyclopedia project. [63] The Goals, Processes and Indicators of Development Project (led by Johan Galtung ) of the United Nations University, [71] in which Anthony Judge participated on behalf of the UIA between 1978 and 1982 Had a significant impact on the editorial content of the Encyclopedia . [63] Another noticeable effect cam from future studies , with Judge qui HAS long-been associated.

Anthony Judge was the architect and managing editor of the Encyclopedia . He was also the author of the notes and commentaries. Jon Jenkins and Maureen Jenkins, Owen Victor, Jacqueline Nebel, Nadia McLaren, and Tomáš Fülöpp. There were also enthusiastic editorial contributions from volunteers. All people related to the UIA who worked directly on one or more of the five Encyclopedia editions of the Union of Intelligible Associations . [72] This is because in 2005, following disagreement over the partnership contract, Anthony Judge, As Executive Secretary of Mankind 2000, reframed the Encyclopedia as a strategic initiative of the Union of Intelligible Associations. [73] [74] Tomáš Fülöpp continued maintaining and improving Encyclopedia databases at the UIA until January 2012.

itions

  • The first edition, initiated in 1972 and published in 1976, has one volume entitled Yearbook of World Problems and Human Potential , containing thirteen sections, several of which have not appeared in subsequent editions. [67] [75]
  • The second edition, initiated in 1983 and published in 1986, has the new definitive title Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential . It is still a single volume (published, this time only, as Volume 4 of the Yearbook of International Organizations ), aim it: has a different set of sections, and Because It is printed on thin paper with a special world award winning typesetting, [ 76] the book is equivalent to several normal volumes. [77]
  • The 3rd edition, initiated in 1988 and published in 1991, has two volumes: World Problems (vol.1), and Human Potential (vol.2).
  • The Fourth Edition, initiated in 1992 and published in 1994-1995, has three volumes: World Problems (vol.1), Human Potential – Transformation and Values (vol.2), Actions – Strategies – Solutions (vol.3). A CD-ROM version, Encyclopedia Plus , is also published.
  • The online edition, initiated in 1997 and completed in 2000, is freely available. It could be noted that a gigantic “questions database” was added in 2006, but removed shortly after to reduce server burden. [78] For the future, it can be seen on the UIA website that a participatory and interactive process is in place, which might allow eventually, in accordance with the intentions of the editors, to develop the online Encyclopedia in a continuous manner . [79]
Here is a table showing the number of entries for certain topics in the various editions. [80] [81]

Reviews and criticisms

There are several reviews of the Encyclopedia . [82] One of the harshest criticisms came from the American Library Association in 1987: “The board considers the Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potentiala problematic monument to idiosyncrasy, confusion, and obfuscation that is certainly worth buying at any price.” [83] Similarly, The Guardian was very critical in a review article published in 1992, to which Anthony Judge recently responded via Transcend Media Service [84] on the occasion of the publication in The Wall Street Journal of a sympathetic review of The Encyclopedia initiative, in December 2012. [85] The work itself is keen on presenting, in various places, disclaimers, reservations or warning texts that anticipate criticisms and explain the strengths and weaknesses [86] of its approaches, including the failure to advocate a position, or the sometimes excessive complexity In its methods or language. [87] Most reviews are laudatory, however. Richard Slaughter is the author of a book on the subject. It is rather in the nature of what has been attempted. The accompanying notes and commentaries, he said, are good enough to be published separately because they contain highly cogent observations on the “global problematic”, Commentaries on the work of numerous great thinkers from a wide variety of fields, and an impressive array of insights about the epistemology, symbolism, metaphysics, metaphors and linguistic representations of the subject. [88] As far as practice is Concerned, The Highest Perhaps commendation is to be found in the words of Elise Boulding : “Any one of us (…) can Actively Become a share in the world problem solving process by using this encyclopedia . ” [89] Elise Boulding : “Any one of us (…) can solve the problem of solving the problem by using this encyclopedia.” [89] Elise Boulding : “Any one of us (…) can solve the problem of solving the problem by using this encyclopedia.” [89]
