Institute for Transdisciplinary Studies in Science, Spirituality, Society

http://www.it4s.ro/
The Institute for Transdisciplinary Studies in Science, Spirituality, Society is founded in order to deepen and broaden the scope of interests of those involved in research and education so far, with a wider target: society. Its main objective is to promote inter-and transdisciplinary research in science, spirituality, and society. IT4S integrates and extends previous activities of the Association for the Dialogue between Science and Theology in Romania - ADSTR. As the prefix "trans" indicates, transdisciplinarity concerns that which is at once between the disciplines, across the different disciplines, and beyond each individual discipline. Its goal is the understanding of the present world, of which one of the imperatives is the overarching unity of knowledge.
