While the myth of quick, sharp decision-making is often regarded as a golden standard, indecisiveness reigns undisturbed in every field. And yet the enduring triumph of technoscience should generate the necessary tools and know-how to solve even the most complex problems. Furthermore, the last thirty years have seen an increased amount of power being delegated to economic and political oligarchies, with the promise of greater efficiency and responsiveness. To analyze the causes of this growing irresoluteness, the essay aims to explore the conflicts permeating the fundamental elements of Decision: form, divided between cutting and unveiling, rationality, belonging to the 'who' and to the 'what', and lastly duration, caught between short-termism and constitutional principles.
