The Design of Material, Organism, and Minds: Different Understandings of Design (X.Media.Publishing)

The Design of Material, Organism, and Minds: Different Understandings of Design (X.Media.Publishing) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Design is eminent throughout different disciplines of science, engineering, humanities, and art. However, within these disciplines, the way in which the term design is understood and applied differs significantly. There still is a profound lack of interdisciplinary research on this issue. The same term is not even guaranteed to carry the same meaning as soon as one crosses over to other disciplines. Therefore, related synergies between disciplines remain largely unexplored and unexploited.This book will address design in the hope of promoting a deeper understanding of it across various disciplines, and to support Design Science as a discipline, which attempts to cover the vast number of currently isolated knowledge sources.    

Synopsis:

The concepts of design are vaguely defined and ways of approaching them diverge substantially. This book presents various uses of design to support design science as a discipline that integrates the vast amount of isolated knowledge sources.
