    Studying the implications of “Over-study,” “over-investigation,” “over-investment,” or “over-research” has recently become a matter of importance on some fields of investigation. This debate has been more vivid in the English-speaking world than in the French-speaking one (an issue of Egypte Monde Arabe that has been the basis for this call and focuses on the zabbâlîn is to be published soon, cf.

    Mountains and New Ways of Building Knowledge

    Contemporary societies have to tackle “wicked” problems, characterized by their complexity, a diversity of views about these problems, as well as a context of uncertainty. Increasingly, the thinking goes that such problems cannot be properly understood by researchers from a single discipline or even by researchers alone.

It also aims to encourage the reflexivity of researchers who contribute to this evolution and question the how and the why of a fondness for/reliance on Alpine research.
