Title: Metaphors and Interdisciplinary Research
Authors: Haven, Emmanuel
Issue Date: Aug-2009
Publisher: World Scientific Publishing
Citation: Proceedings of the First Interdisciplinary Chess Interactions Conference, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, 17-20 August 2009 / edited by Chary Rangacharyulu, pp. 87-97.
Abstract: This paper starts out with a possible definition of what a metaphor can be. It then continues to discuss what a model is, using the approach by Verhulst (1988). We give some examples of methaphorical uses in interdisciplinary settings. We also query if one can always use methaphors in research. The paper continues with a discussion on why we want to pursue interdisciplinary research. We give some examples of such research (focussing on the interface of social science and physics).
