The Contemporary Transdisciplinary Approach as a Methodology to Aid Students of Humanities and Social Sciences
Todorova, Petia
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (11th, Plovdiv, Bulgaria, May 14-17, 2013)
In this paper, the author (Todorova, Petia) addresses the problems students of humanities and social sciences face in the choice of methodology which they should employ in the theoretic discussion of a given task. This is due to the fact that in the course of their education the necessity of methodological competency is largely neglected and is rarely included as part of their curriculum. Todorova introduces the transdisciplinary approach that allows for the understanding of the complexities of the modern world which is a primary feature of its scientific legitimacy, and adds that the use of transdisciplinary approach is a way to broaden one's academic view on life. This may be achieved by expanding scientific knowledge, by creating a common model of tackling complex subjects, and by improving the methods used in dealing with such complex subjects.
