Concept creep and the new American fragility


#1

Interesting article that I found:

It’s an intriguing concept, that links together a number of different things that get posted on BB- from the ever expanding definition of “terrorism” to the fight over the DSM. And I wonder if it’s possible to discuss it on the internet without providing an example of what it described.

I think the term “concept creep” is the only non-superfluous example of concept creep.

The examples described in the article can be analyzed more simply using evidence-based, non-creeping concepts, like trauma.
