Crisis

Crisis

Crisis is a conjuncture of changes in any aspect of an organized but unstable reality, subject to evolution; Especially, the crisis of a structure. Critical changes, although predictable, always have some degree of uncertainty as to their reversibility or degree of depth, otherwise they would be mere automatic reactions such as physico-chemical reactions. If the changes are deep, sudden and violent, and above all they bring transcendental consequences, they go beyond a crisis and can be called revolution. Crises can designate a traumatic change in the life or health of a person or an unstable and dangerous social situation in the political, economic, military, etc. It may also be the definition of a large-scale environmental fact, especially those involving abrupt change. In a less typical way, they refer to the crisis as the emergencies or times of crisis difficulties. Crisis es una coyuntura de cambios en cualquier aspecto de una realidad organizada pero inestable, sujeta a evolución; especialmente, la crisis de una estructura. Los cambios críticos, aunque previsibles, tienen siempre algún grado de incertidumbre en cuanto a su reversibilidad o grado de profundidad, pues si no serían meras reacciones automáticas como las físico-químicas. Si los cambios son profundos, súbitos y violentos, y sobre todo traen consecuencias trascendentales, van más allá de una crisis y se pueden denominar revolución. Las crisis pueden designar un cambio traumático en la vida o salud de una persona o una situación social inestable y peligrosa en lo político, económico, militar, etc. También puede ser la definición de un hecho medioambiental de gran escala, especialmente los que implican un cambio abrupto. De una manera menos propia, se refieren con el nombre de crisis las emergencias o las épocas de dificultades de la crisis.
