Interdisciplinarity is a phenomenon of several dimensions. The literature on this subject is dominated by studies relating to research conducted at the interface between natural sciences. This book defies these tendencies and aims to elucidate different aspects of interdisciplinarity in several academic disciplines mostly considered as a part of social sciences and humanities. Moreover, the book provides the view on interdisciplinarity “from within” specific disciplines – among the authors of individual chapters one can find representatives of philosophy, cognitive sciences, law, economics, sociology, history, and theology actively working in their research areas.

 

This book is the result of the project “Humanities in Dialogue”, financed by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, agreement number 0239/DLG/2018/10.
