Nurjatud probleemid on viimasel kümnendil ka eestikeelses ruumis leviv terminoloogia, kuigi kontseptuaalselt sageli ülelihtsustatud ja sellest tõukuvalt ehk ka vildaka kasutusväljaga. Siinviidatud vabalevis olev tekst võiks huvi pakkuda kõikidele neile, kes nurjatud probleemide üle mõtlemisest huvitet või ennast teemasse sisse hakkavad lugema. Siiski, bibliomeetriline analüüs on kasulik ka uurijatele-tudengitele nii tulemuse kui uurimuse läbiviimise tähenduses. Lisaks on tekstis viidatud ka nurjatud probleemidega Eestis tõsiselt tegeleva Peeter Selg et’al tekstile.

Kontekstiks:

The concept of wicked problems derived from the field of planning was first proposed by Horst Rittel, professor of design, in a seminar of the Department of Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1967. It refers to complex and difficult problems that lack a complete definition or final solution (Rittel and Webber 1973).

Miks nurjatutest probleemidest mõtlemine võiks kasulik olla:

There is no denying that the concept of wicked problems is a valuable concept, which reveals the inapplicability of the reductionist approach and the linear problem-solving approach while solving complex social problems (Xiang 2013; Lönngren 2017). Besides, knowing what true wicked problems are is an essential prerequisite for solving them.

Artikli keskne väide:

This paper argues that the root cause of the inability to accurately define wicked problems lies in the dichotomy between the facts and values of wicked problems.

Vihjed uurimistöö metoodilisele alusele:

Therefore, this paper uses Citespace5.5 to analyze wicked problems from a transdisciplinarity perspective. More specifically, this paper attempts to answer the following questions: (1) What is the current transdisciplinarity research status of wicked problems? (2) What is the path of knowledge evolution on wicked problems? How does the process of publishing more transdisciplinarity papers happen? (3) Is transdisciplinarity possible in the current situation?

Lugemishuvi suurendamiseks:

This paper reveals the current situation and development trend of transdisciplinary research on wicked problems. Firstly, the stages of wicked problems could be divided into two stages, that is, specialization and inclusive knowledge production. […] Combining theoretical and practical research, we discover that the research scope on wicked problems is still evolving and spreading in public policy.
