Benefits of Interdisciplinary Inquiry

Here's how I've summarized the benefits of Interdisciplinarity:

· Leveraging the use of language and other intellectual tools developed for one realm in another realm
· Increasing the portability of knowledge and increasing the size and impact of intellectual communities
· Identifying areas of inquiry that are important but under-explored
· Discovering better mappings to the "real world"
· Bringing submerged or marginal issues to light
