The book's final aim goals to extend serious debate among diversified disciplines, techniques, suggestions and problems.Content:

Breaking these down and developing a shared, common understanding was a more powerful platform from which to develop a project. Through the process of articulation we moved much closer to the crux of the problem that we wished to explore but, as a by-product, gained a deeper insight into what interdisciplinarity really meant. One aspect of this progress was to define a whole that was greater than the sum of its parts. A second aspect emerged through the process. Each member of the team was constantly tested in their assumptions and perceptions, and whilst the process was difficult and time consuming it was rewarding and resulted in a much stronger basis from which to develop research (Bracken and Oughton, 2006).
