Interdisciplinary Scholarship.
Aronoff, S.
It is increasingly demanded that our academic institutions, having been the primary source of the material structuring our civilization, also be the vehicle for finding solutions for its ills. Society is pressuring the university to establish multidisciplinary programs as the most suitable mechanism for meeting these demands. This will require drastic reorganization in the structure and methodology of the university. The tightly structured, vertically oriented disciplines must be loosened to allow for horizontal diffusion of knowledge. The study of man and his environment, in particular, and the social sciences, in general, demand a drastic revision of curricula. A thorough investigation must be begun into the relations between academic offerings and social needs. (AF)
