The foundations of analysis and synthesis as scientific methods, and especially the requirements for the successful application of these methods, are dealt with.

Models in Science.

Most children like to play with models, including model cars, tinker toys, model houses, and so on. Likewise, most scientists interact with models. However, their model interaction is out of

Using Morphological Analysis for evaluating Preparedness for Accidents Involving Hazardous Materials Adapted from an article presented at the 4th International Conference for Local Authorities, Shanghai, November, 2002.

Fortunately, accidents involving hazardous materials, e.g. dangerous chemical substances, are relatively rare in Scandinavia. When they do occur, however, the consequences – both for life and the

Dilemmas in a general theory of planning

The search for scientific bases for confronting problems of social policy is bound to fail, becuase of the nature of these problems. They are “wicked” problems, whereas science has developed to deal
