AbstractThis article examines the meaning and the state of the art of inter- and transdisciplinary research. After contextualizing the historical emergence of interdisciplinarity, we propose some definitions, discuss the role of disciplines and examine the calling for non-expert knowledge to join the dialogue in interdisciplinary research, linking this process with university structures and other institutions of knowledge production. We then present the trends in interdisciplinary research in various parts of the world as well as in Colombia, and describe the existing barriers to interdisciplinary work.
