Three Roots of Transdisciplinary Analysis in Peace Education1 Tres Raíces del Análisis Transdisciplinario en Educación para la Paz

It will be documented in the following that social, economic and political dimensions are highlighted in the Neapolitan context, a philosophical understanding of the relationship between humanity and nature is at the centre in the Japanese analysis, and the historical imprint of colonization upon the human mind is foregrounded in the South African case. These different ways of approaching an understanding of contextual conditions are not mutually exclusive, however, and together they are seen as valuable contributions to an analysis that sees no disciplinary borders in finding ways of understanding human agency in relation to contextual conditions. I shall, therefore, discuss how these different ways of understanding human agency have one thing in common: They all meet criteria of transdisciplinarity.
