This article focuses on interdisciplinarity. The enormous complexity of the modern world, its order, technologies and the multiple interconnectedness of the problems facing it, are accompanied and mirrored by a growing fragmentation of academia and expertise, with ever more disciplines and subdisciplines specializing in ever narrower fields generating ever more detailed and intricate knowledge about ever more specific subjects. Interdisciplinarity is one of the suggested remedies for this problem. Bring together people representing the requisite knowledge and let them cooperate.
