Thinking Independently and, Then, as One: The Relationship Between Truth, Art and Science in the Field of Cross-Disciplinarity

Salvatore Lorusso, Mauro Mantovani, Giampaolo Maria Cogo


I would define the following text as a Note in which different cultural extractions and equally different personal ideas have led to a discussion and the consequent need on the part of each of the authors to write the short paper which, rightly and emphatically, does not exclude others, but rather integrates them into the specific subject matter.

The theme it discusses — “Truth” — as an axiom itself, in this case is directed at the cul­tural areas in which, and for which, the authors themselves operate: art and science.

Thus the authors of the paper, the scientist, the philosopher and the jurist, with the perspective of openness toward transcendence that unites them, albeit in different ways and with different convictions, give meaning and reason to the concept of “inter­disciplinarity” and “transdisciplinarity.”

In this regard, I would like to underline that this concept, which has developed into the stronger form of “cross-disciplinarity,” is present in the Apostolic Constitution “Veritatis Gaudium,” defined as another step in the cultural revolution of Pope Francis.

Here, in short: “Thinking independently and, then, as one.”
