The Potential of Transdisciplinarity [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Transdisciplinarity has a semantic appeal which differs from what one often calls inter- or multi- , or pluri- disciplinarity. And, note that the prefix - trans- is shared with another word, namely transgressiveness. If it is true that knowledge is transgressive, then it means transdisciplinarity does not respect disciplinary boundaries. It goes beyond the disciplinary boundaries, but it does not respect institutional boundaries, either. In addition, there is a kind of similarity, a kind of convergence or co- evolution, between what is happening in the sphere of knowledge production and what we can see going on in the way that societal institutions are developing.
