Why are we able to use the same problem analysis categories mentioned in Ch. 1 of the text to analyze historical problems as well as problems facing modern society?

 

We are able to use the same problem analysis categories to analyze both historical problems and modern problems because the categories are basic. They leave much room for interpretation. The categories were designed for the analysis of any social problem. It is true that time and place is relevant to analyzing a social problem, but the categories discussed in Chapter One are not limited to modern society. 

If I was to perform a problem analysis for both a historical problem and a modern problem, I believe I would use a similar technique in each category for both. One major similarity between the two problems is that someone or some group would be affected, or else it would not be a concern. I would find losers and gainers in both situations. Each problem would have a cause and consequences. 

I believe as long as all the facts and varying viewpoints are accessible, historical problems can be just as successfully analyzed as modern problems. I would also like to point out that some problems reoccur all throughout history up until today. With that being said, some variables might change such as an increase or decrease in  the number of those affected, but the problem would for the most part be analyzed just as it may have been previously
