Abstract

‘‘Vulnerability’’ and ‘‘resilience’’ are terms of such broad conceptual meaning as to be almost useless for careful scientific communication, except as rhetorical indicators of areas of greatest concern. This is a reflection of the complexity of their meaning, an uncoordinated search among different fields for a common understanding, and maybe the difficulty of systematizing these complicated issues among the various involved parties.
