Project: Interdisciplinarity, causation and explanatory pluralism in the biomedical sciences
- project duration
- 01-JAN-07 – 31-DEC-10
- Explanations of diseases can result from a biological, pshycological or social science approach. This project examines how these approaches relate to each other in the biomedical sciences. Should they be integrated? Are they, on the other hand, incompatible? Etc. We will address these questions by comparing the causal concepts, methdology and forms of explanation applied in these different approaches.
