Basic concepts and the interconnection between academic disciplines

Authors

Abstract

The differentiation and specialisation of academic disciplines may create the impression that the various academic disciplines are not truly related. Yet a thorough analysis of the basic concepts employed within these disciplines points toward a particularly intimate and fundamental coherence among the various disciplines. This connectedness, however, does not concern scholarly theories as such in the first place, but rather the ontic status of the aspects of reality which delineate the fields of investigation of these disciplines. These aspects are mutually related in a web of inter-  aspectual coherences, as reflected in the basic (analogical) concepts of their respective academic disciplines.
