Abstract

Modern technological societies are confronted by a vast array of problems. They are interlocked, one with another, forming a vast web. The solution to anyone problem will not necessarily ease the functioning of the whole -- indeed, it can often make things worse. This is true because the modern technological world is incredibly complex, interconnected, and interdependent.
