    By Sabina Jeschke, Eva-Maria Jakobs, Alicia Dröge

    Der Umgang mit Ungewissheit und Unsicherheit besitzt in allen Wissenschaftsdisziplinen und -kulturen hohe Relevanz. Insgesamt zeichnet sich die Tendenz ab, dass "schwach strukturierte" Szenarien sowohl an Bedeutung als auch an "Erfolg" gewinnen und Konzepte, die sich gezielte Inkaufnahme und Umgang mit Unsicherheit auszeichnen, aufgrund höherer Geschwindigkeit und Flexibilität häufig "deterministischeren" Konzepten überlegen sind. Vor diesem Hintergrund stellt sich die Frage nach eienr fachübergreifenden Sichtweiseauf das Kozept der Ungewissheit, insbesondere auch vor dem Hintergrund unterschiedlicher internationaler, disziplinärer und geographischer Kulturen. Dieses Fachbuch beleuchtet das gleichsam grundlegende wie zukunftsweisende Thema Ungewissheit auf hohem wissenschaftlichen Niveau, wichtige Impulse für die multi-, inter- und transdisziplinäre Bearbeitung des Forschungsfeldes werden diskutiert.​
