Discipline-Independent-Transdisciplinarity: The Essentials

This paper presents a practical methodology for discipline-independent-transdisciplinary knowledge and understanding. This methodology provides both breadth and depth of understanding throughout the disciplines of the sciences and humanities. It is universal in that it integrates the knowledge of all the disciplines into a single coherent body of knowledge. It is based on isomorphies, specific patterns-of-organization of structure and process that occur in diverse situations, wherein they determine the origins of those situations, their structure and processes, and the interrelations of those situations with other situations. These isomorphies are used as conceptual-tools—what is known about the intrinsic nature and the roles of an isomorphy in one situation can be used to enhance understanding in other situations where that isomorphy occurs. The methodology is based on scientific knowledge, and results in the emergence of a universal language of transdisciplinarity. The methodology is not simple, but it is real, and exceptionally rigorous.
