Darbellay, Frédéric – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2019

Keestra, Machiel – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2019
When introduced around 1925, interdisciplinarity, grounded in the notion of the unity of knowledge, was meant to reconnect the fragmented and specialized disciplines of academia.

McCormack, Brian – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2018
Color has been considered as a special problem in several disciplines, notably art and music, but also philosophy and literature. Given that color is also a central feature of some scientific thought (think of Newton and the color spectrum, for example), the question "What color is the interdisciplinary?" seems to be a golden opportunity…

Szostak, Rick – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2018
The scholarship of interdisciplinarity provides a potentially powerful response to anti-intellectual and anti-democratic impulses. It recognizes that proof and disproof are generally impossible, and that scientists can be biased in their evaluation of the evidence. Yet it proposes a set of strategies for transcending scholarly disputes in order to…
