Wide and Narrow Interdisciplinarity.
Kelly, James S.
Journal of General Education, v45 n2 p95-113 1996
Distinguishes between the narrow integration of disciplines, or focusing on solving specific problems, and wide integration, or sharing broad epistemological/metaphysical suppositions across disciplines. Advocates wide interdisciplinarity, arguing that the sciences tend to eliminate values or guiding suppositions when narrowly integrated with humanities disciplines, but that these suppositions are essential.
