Can problem-solving itself be problematic? (Sense-making, Part 6)

This essay is largely a critique of how we tend to focus on problem-solving to address any undesirable situation. However, as I’ve been writing it, the whole issue has become increasingly nuanced and complex, such that I feel impelled both to keep adding more aspects to the essay (threatening to make it overwhelming and unreadable) AND to set it aside as incomplete and probably misleading (thus denying you the opportunity to consider any of its significant ideas). I’ve finally decided to send it out in its incomplete, inadequate and “problematic” form with caveats about its many limitations and an invitation to benefit from its many gifts. See what you think. Feel free to comment. – Tom
