        Subject: combinatorics?


I am looking for an explanation of the intellectual reach of 
combinatorics with examples of the kinds of non-mathematical problems it 
can deal with and what the outcomes are like. Chess and go are, I'd 
suppose, obvious examples, but what about problems in the humanities and 
interpretative social sciences?

Any help, references, suggestions would be most welcome.

Yours,
WM
