Title 6 – KQ 6 : To what extent does a multidisciplinary approach accommodates contrasting perspectives?

KQ 6 : To what extent does a multidisciplinary approach accommodates contrasting perspectives?

Sometimes the experts, though from the same discipline, may be representing and/or working different institutions , businesses and associations. Their contrasting perspectives , though with the same facts , shift into national or local policies, public health regulations, cultural and religious restrictions, predicted expansions of business profits, policy alliances, international interests and conflicts – making the disagreements more complex .

Since the past few centuries , knowledge advancement has occurred through increasing specialisation. We have understood our world by creating disciplines and subdisciplines that have dedicated all the resources at their disposal to create experts in their respective fields. Regardless of all the success and understanding achieved in single disciplines, we have a world of complex and interconnected systems that necessitate a multifaceted approach and we have adopted ways to cooperate and collaborate between disciplines to solve complex problems and understand complex events. Taking for example, Language and Music have been subjects of keen investigation across a great diversity of fields – from neuroscience and psychology to ethnography and musicology . It is now very evident that no single field of investigation can address the wide range of issues relevant to answering the question of music’s origins. The evidence from wide range of anthropological and human sciences, including palaeoanthropology, archaeology, neuroscience, primatology and developmental psychology, has been put together to understand the evolution of music and its relationship to other human capabilities and behaviours.
