MARTINEZ ALVAREZ, Fidel; ORTIZ HERNANDEZ, Eloy  y  GONZALEZ MORA, Ania. Towards an Epistemology of Transdisciplinarity. Rev Hum Med [online]. 2007, vol.7, n.2. ISSN 1727-8120.

To carry out an analysis of knowledge in general and of its integrative forms in particular, it could take any discipline, theory and focus as starting point. However, each area of knowledge has its own emergent epistemological perspectives, as well as its corresponding gnostic , ideological and scientific-methodological implications, so that to develop a study on the integration of knowledge presupposes to face the challenge of transgressing the frontiers of the study object, without impairing the role played in the history of science by each one of the socially known modern disciplines. Even today paradoxically there is a non-admitted isolation (schools or invisible schools) among disciplines. This peculiar phenomenon generates the demand of studies that promote more integrative approaches as those of the transdisciplinarity Consequently, the objective of this work is to systematize some epistemological foundations of the transdisciplinarity approach
