    How and Why to Teach Interdisciplinary Research Practice.Rick Szostak - 2007 - Journal of Research Practice 3 (2):Article M17.

Having distinguished interdisciplinarity from the disciplinary approach, the advantages and disadvantages of each can be discussed. It is useful to discuss the history of both disciplines and interdisciplinarity. It is also useful to discuss the complex relationship between (...)

    Evaluating the Historiography of the Great Depression: Explanation or Single‐Theory Driven?Rick Szostak - 2005 - Journal of Economic Methodology 12 (1):35-61.

Several ?decision points? in the historiography of the Great Depression are examined and it is shown that the decisions made at each point reflect a single?theory?driven orientation. It is argued that the single?theory?driven approach (...)

    Unifying Ethics provides a simple yet powerful response to the ethical challenge of our time: How can respect for diversity be encouraged, but also honesty, responsibility, and other desirable attitudes, values, and behaviors be encouraged?
