Excerpt: Why is it that throughout this century the most authoritative voices in science, and especially in the policy sciences, have called for interdisciplinary research, and yet relatively little takes place? One can only conclude that it is harder than appears, that some hidden obstacle stands in its way. There was no difficulty when interdisciplinary meant what it says, exploring the empty space between the recognized disciplines. Biochemistry is an incidence of interdisciplinary research that matured quickly as a discipline on its own. But now we are concerned not with empty spaces but the contrary, with overlapping, with territory in which two or more disciplines have something to say, and where there is apparent contradiction between their conclusions and policy recommendations.
