Abstract

The differentiation and specialisation of academic disciplines may create the impression that the various academic disciplines are not truly related. Yet a thorough analysis of the basic concepts employed within these disciplines points toward a particularly intimate and fundamental coherence among the various disciplines. This connectedness, however, does not concern scholarly theories as such in the first place, but rather the ontic status of the aspects of reality which delineate the fields of investigation of these disciplines. These aspects are mutually related in a web of inter-aspectual coherences, as reflected in the basic (analogical) concepts of their respective academic disciplines.


Die differensiasie en spesialisasie van akademiese dissiplines mag die indruk wek dat die verskillende vakwetenskappe nie werklik met mekaar verband hou nie. Nogtans belig 'n grondige analise van die basiese begrippe binne hierdie dissiplines die besonder intieme en fundamentele samehang tussen hulle. Nietemin het hierdie verbondenheid in die eerste plek nie betrekking op die wetenskaplike teorieë as sodanig nie, maar op die ontiese status van die aspekte van die werklikheid wat die studiegebiede van die dissiplines afbaken. Hierdie aspekte hou verband met mekaar binne 'n netwerk van onderlinge verhoudinge tussen hierdie aspekte, soos gereflekteer in die (analogiese) grondbegrippe van die onderskeie vakwetenskappe.
