Research Interests: Strategy and History

Laws of strategy and creativity? Are there laws of strategy, of strategic action in reaching defined goals? If so how does this reconcile with the notion of strategy as a creative process, in which individuals creatively recombine existing elements and discover new approaches to attainig goals and solving problems. Best suited seems an evolutionary perpecitive / framework that allows for patterns and laws of development and creative variation.

Laws of history - if processes of social development follow evolutionary principles, they should follow some kind of (possibly abstract) laws of development which can be translated into a perspective of laws of historical development. If these exist they can be linked to and used for the understanding of social processes around us.
