Problems, Predicaments, And You
“In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.”
- Albert Einstein (org. by Benjamin Brewster)
A problem and a predicament are often taken to be synonymous, but there is a subtle difference. This difference is important for understanding society’s present situation. I am speaking of how modern society is beset by a multitude of problems, which are inherently intertwined and together constitute a major predicament; ecological overshoot.
