Transdisciplinarity through Arts, Sciences and Policy

The CEARC participates in the Trans-disciplinary Encounter in the Philharmonie de Paris, 24 April 2017.

One of the effects produced by the emerge of specialized researches, is that each discipline has developed, along the time, its own method and language that makes substantially inaccessible and shareable, out of its specialist context, its own patrimony of knowledge . This represents a serious barrier to any attempts to reconstruct the unity of knowledge, particularly when the focus of the study is represented by a subject that is the product of traditional knowledge systems, whose main connotation is that of being carrier of tangible and intangible values.

This joint focused meeting between the UNESCO Transdisciplinary Chair of Florence University and the COST Action Wood MusICK is a chance to think together about the epistemological methodology of complexity (transdisciplinarity) applied to the studies on Early Wooden Musical Instruments (WMI).
