Steve Fuller: “The promises and perils of interdisciplinary research: A long view”

Steve William Fuller (b. 1959) is an American philosopher-sociologist in the field of science and technology studies. This video (part 1 of 3 on You Tube) is a keynote lecture he gave at the Lithuanian Society of Young Researchers conference in January 2012. I particularly like his discussion of “internal” and “external” interdisciplinarity, and how those concepts are historically embedded into graduate studies at the university.
