Abstract

The usage of risk-based approaches can be traced back over millennia, but seemingly experienced surges during the era referred to as The Enlightenment in the 18th century and again at the close of the 20th century. The widespread application of risk-based thinking is thought by many to have yielded benefits, but across the spectrum of applications many controversies have been identified. Risk decision makers should be aware if not wary of the potential problems to which these controversies can give rise.
