The following article is from The Great Soviet Encyclopedia (1979). It might be outdated or ideologically biased.



in the broad sense, a complex theoretical or practical question requiring study and a solution. In science, a problem consists in a contradictory situation that arises in the form of opposing views to the explanation of any given phenomenon, object, or process and that requires an adequate theory for its solution.
