It was easiest to grab this definition from Wikipedia:

“Wicked problem” is a phrase originally used in social planning to describe a problem that is difficult or impossible to solve because of incomplete, contradictory, and changing requirements that are often difficult to recognize. The term “wicked” is used to denote resistance to resolution, rather than evil. Moreover, because of complex interdependencies, the effort to solve one aspect of a wicked problem may reveal or create other problems.

I am three and a bit weeks into my studies and the stats just keep coming, not to mention the plethora of topics that just need to be addressed. It’s a big mess. Will little things help? Practical or theoretical? My mind is opening up to the so much … and aside from what will happen, and how can we make a difference, I want to know how we got here.
