Full-text available
Mechanistic and scientific approaches to resilience assume that there is a "tipping point" at which a system can no longer absorb adversity; after this point, it is liable to collapse. Some of these perspectives, particularly those stemming from ecology and psychology, recognise that individuals and communities cannot be perpetually resilient witho...
