  • Modern western societies have a paradoxical relationship with risks. On the one hand, there is the utopian quest for a zero-risk society. On the other hand, human activities may increase risks of all kinds, from collaterals of new technologies to global impacts on the planet. The characteristic multiplication of major risks in modern society and its reflexive impact on its development is at the core of the concept of the “Risk Society”

  • Risk has become one of the main topics in fields as diverse as engineering, medicine, and economics, and it is also studied by social scientists, psychologists, and legal scholars. But the topic of risk also leads to more fundamental questions such as:What is risk?What can decision theory contribute to the analysis of risk? What does the human perception of risk mean for society? How should we judge whether a risk is morally acceptable or not? Over the last couple of decades, questions like these have attracted interest from philosophers and other scholars into risk theory.

  • Since the dawn of civilisation human society has been shaped by its interaction with water—whether too much or too little. Indeed, water is one of the powerful forces of nature that have formed the planet on which we live. Floods are not new—they continually make news because of both tragic effects on individuals and acts of heroism in the emergency. The impact of floods on people can be dramatic even if there are no fatalities; pictures of rescue make good television material with stories told of bravery and fortunate escapes.

  • Justice is no mere abstraction. Finding justice and doing justice is a continuous human task. It is the activity which in any society gives politics and the law their purpose. The activity has both a material and a discursive dimension. It has to do with what we are, what we do and what we say. What we are and do is materially real. How we relate to others is discursively real, a matter of communicated explanations via words. The struggle for justice is about how we explain the basis of a good and proper relationship between ourselves and others.

  • In today’s litigious society Records Management is more important than ever but unfortunately is still overlooked and under-funded at all levels of government. In court an astute attorney can discredit an agency in the eyes of a judge or jury by attacking the way the agency handles its records. The fact that the records may refute or support a particular position is obscured by the attack on how the agency accounts for and handles those records.

  • That there are people in the world who are interested in risk and risk-taking would surprise no-one I venture. That there should be such a thing as the philosophy of sport, and a well-established tradition of scholarship in it, surprises most academics I meet.1 That there might be philosophers, professionally interested in adventure, risk and risk-taking may well, however, raise more than a few eyebrows. Some further words are in order then.

  • For many years, the stock and futures markets have been consid- ered separate and distinct entities. Stocks (securities) have been the backbone of capitalism and are still regarded as such today. Stocks are considered the “stuff” of which all “good investments” are fash- ioned. Not only has stock and bond trading been considered neces- sary for the survival of industry and business in a capitalist society, but it has also been regarded as the single most viable form of in- vesting for the general public.

  • Technology is a powerful force of change in our world. We live longer and arguably better lives than our great-great-grandparents because of advances in medical, communication, and transportation technology. As we enter this new century there is apparently no end in sight for the transformative potential of human innovation. However, there is now ample evidence that the real legacy of invention is defined in equal parts by its benefits to society as well as its costs. There is no technology that comes without some level of risk.

  • Early-Onset drinkers or ‘Survivors’ are those people who have a continuing problem with alcohol which developed in earlier life. It is thought that two thirds of elderly problem drinkers have had an early onset of alcohol misuse. However, because of the health risks connected to heavy drinking and dependence on alcohol, the chances of reaching old age are reduced - one estimate is that the life span of a problem drinker may be shortened by on average ten to fifteen years.
