The Interdisciplinary Challenge: Connection and Balance.
Cummings, Richard J.
National Forum: Phi Kappa Phi Journal, v69 n2 p2-3 Spr 1989

Disciplines are convenient but artificial constructs, and while academia may be divided into them, the world is not. A sense of the balance and connection between them is vital. (MSE)
