Re-thinking knowledge for interdisciplinary research & education

Most disciplines explain knowledge in terms of objective realities, people’s interpretations, or correspondence between them. Coherence theories, by contrast, explain knowing in terms of contextual fitness or viability. This presentation argues that the latter offer a more productive epistemological basis for interdisciplinary research and education.
