About this product
- DescriptionInterdisciplinarity defines and discusses disciplinarian thinking in a world dominated by increasing complexity. Is interdisciplinarity the answer to the contradictions and paradoxes created by this situation? The nature of the interdisciplinarian activity is analyzed in this context and the author concludes that, while practical interdisciplinarity may at times be very successful, many interdisciplinarian activities lead to confusion and deep antagonisms between different intellectual cultures. Interdisciplinarity as a metadiscipline remains still to be defined.
