Dated to the early 1500s, English borrowed dilemma from Late Latin, which, in turn, borrowed the word from the Greek δίλημμα (dilemma). #dilemma #Latin #etymology #Greek  
Today, the word dilemma generally refers to a ‘difficult situation or problem’. Historically, however, a dilemma names a much more specific challenge.

Well taught social sciences, on the other hand, are a potentially powerful intellectual defence against it. Whilst his primary focus was MENA (Middle East and North Africa) he draws implications for education in the West.
