Disciplines in the Making: Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Elites, Learning, and Innovation

Oxford University Press (2009)

Abstract
We tend to assume that our map of the intellectual disciplines is valid cross-culturally. G. E. R. Lloyd challenges this in relation to eight main areas of human endeavour, namely philosophy, mathematics, history, medicine, art, law, religion, and science, by examining how the disciplines were conceived and developed in different times and places.
