Traditional methods of viewing the world through the scientific method or instrumental knowledge do not adequately serve the needs of theory, research, and practice within an increasingly complex world. Through transdisciplinary theory, the focus is on a new form of learning and problem solving involving cooperation among different parts of society to meet the complex challenges of society.

The Handbook of Research on Transdisciplinary Knowledge Generation is a critical scholarly resource that examines mutual learning across disciplinary lines as a strategy by which to understand the world and apply practical knowledge. Featuring a wide array of topics such as linguistic diversity, medical education, and social constructivism, this book is essential for educational professionals, researchers, students, administrators, and academicians.
