Description


Addressing itself to the problem of knowledge fragmentation, this collection of essays seeks to develop strategies from a variety of perspectives: scientific, religious, and pedagogical. The newly founded Association for the Unity and Integration of Knowledge has assembled this material from its inaugural conference held at the University of Calgary in 1994. Taking interdisciplinary studies beyond the mere juxtaposition of disciplines for the purpose of solving specific problems, the essays in this collection focus on the more general problem of integrating different kinds of understanding in a non-sectarian manner.
