Thinking the Problematic

Genealogies and Explorations between Philosophy and the Sciences

The notion of »the problematic« has changed its meaning within the history of power and knowledge since the early 20th century, leading up to today's performative, neocybernetic fascination with generalized management ideas and technocratic models of science. This book explores central scenes, conceptual elaborations, and practical affiliations of what historically has been called »the problem« or »the problematic«. By way of considering modes of problematization as modes of inhabitation, intervention, and transformation the contributions map its current conceptual-political uses as well as onto-epistemological challenges. Thus, »problematization« is positioned as a critical concept that links, often in intricate ways, several currents from speculative philosophy to the formation of interdisciplinary fields. The »problematic«, as it turns out, has been the source of change in philosophy and the sciences all along.

1. Why did You chose this topic?

The discourses concerning problems and the problematic is ripe for further investigations and developments as these concepts appeared throughout the 20th century's history of thought. In continental philosophy, the triad concept, problem, method has been an overt or underlying current in a variety of perspectives. It reappeared at center stage in recent pragmatist ideas. In interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary works, the problem and the problematic seem to be the common denominators.

2. What new perspectives does your book offer?

For the first time, this volume assembles perspectives from transdisciplinary sustainability sciences, pragmatist-speculative methodologies, and histories of the sciences and philosophy, and thus initiates a new dialogue.

3. What makes your topic relevant for current research debates?

Methods and methodologies are in crisis and that is good. In the current global situation, we need to invent new methods that go beyond the 20th century paradigms. The problematic opens up our thinking as it includes changes and dynamics that demand us to move with it.

4. Choose one person you would like to discuss your book with!

It is Gilbert Simondon who gave us the most concrete and universal discussions of the problematic as the bearer of change and individuation. In his works, the theme of the problematic is developed in the most productive way, accessible and fruitful for all disciplines.

5. Your book summary in one sentence:

It establishes the human condition of thinking as a positive conception of problems that decouples problems from solutions.
