New Essays on Transdisciplinarity

For years now, academics worldwide have been pushing for more interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity. Yet for all that, the very concept of transdisciplinarity has proved remarkably tough to define, let alone to enact. This book brings together prominent voices from the debate on transdisciplinarity in a manner that is itself transdisciplinary: scholars present papers from their own discipline, and those are followed by critical replies from different disciplines. The result is a vivid debate, new insights, and a growing confidence that there is something to be gained by approaching a topic from the outside and bringing new approaches to bear.

Reviews

“There are concepts that are suffering from their own success. What had once been the label of a productively irritating idea might represent now something that has turned to be part of the usual agenda. ‘Sustainability’ is one example.‘Transdisciplinarity’ another. Hence, it is not an easy task, first, not to come too late to reconsidering this concept; second, to achieve to say something new; and, third, to combine structure and content: writing on transdisciplinarity in a transdisciplinary way. This volume is meeting this three-fold task—with a highly prominent line-up, truly new perspectives on still pertinent challenges, and a very well designed structure of seminal papers and equally programmatic replies.”

Michael Lineal, Hebrew University
