Filters against Folly - Book by Garett Hardin

Garett Hardin's book "Filters against Folly" discusses the importance of understanding, categorizing, and selecting words (literacy), dealing with numbers (numeracy), and comprehending the impacts on complex systems (ecolacy). The central idea is that not all problems have global solutions, and the emphasis should be on avoiding the futile search for universal answers. Instead, Hardin suggests focusing on local solutions to address specific issues. The book underscores the significance of literacy, numeracy, and ecolacy in navigating the challenges posed by complex systems.
