Abstract

Transdisciplinarity (TR) is part of a theoretical and practical effort to address the limitations of disciplines. As products of ongoing human activity, disciplines are incompletions in process, each having some relation to what is outside of the limits formed by their borders. These borders include relations to other disciplines (epistemological borders), to undisciplined knowledge (lay/expert borders), to the real-world environment of practical issues and problems (pure/applied borders), and to the matrix of the broader society that variously supports or challenges its activity (science/society borders). TR is associated with efforts to transcend these borders.
