Problem

Analytical stagnation

Other Names:
Overemphasis on analysis
Nature:
The current overemphasis on analysis without the necessary counter-balance of synthesis or interpretation leads to a form of analytical stagnation, or an analyzed chaos without meaning. Science has provided more data than can be intelligently interpreted. The mere quantity of facts necessitates a specialized form of analysis without the possibility of seeing the facts within their full context. Without such a perspective, future generations are ill-equipped for the ever-increasing complexity of human experience.
