In scientific literature related to asphaliology, concerning the security
science, lots of discussions are conducted as part of interdisciplinary, disciplinary
and transdisciplinary research. Research areas of asphaliology are subject of this
The point is to study security from the point of view of many disciplines and
areas. The number of disciplines that can contribute to generate new knowledge
about security is not small, starting from: politology, criminology, criminalistics,
psychopatology, ecology, biochemistry, genetics, geography, history, economics,
linguistics, mathematics, physics, chemistry, statistics, neurology, pharmacology,
psychiatry, physiology, sociology, penology, law, medicine as well as agricultural,
military, technical and informaton sciences. The list of scientific areas that could be
deployed in transdisciplinary researches is not definite.
There is not only one approach to understand the standpoints of the
interdisciplinary researches in scientific literature. Generally the differences can be
distributed into two groups. The first group composes those schools and thoughts
that consider security as one research area part of the "fundamental" or "parental"
sciences which is issue for method application and its techniques and process could
be basis for other sciences. Knowledge generated from their research belongs to the
knowledge of their research corpus.
Security sciences are awarded with prescriptive or melioristic character
which aim is correction, improvement of security practice, on the basis of research
results that are created in the frames of "fundamental" sciences.
On the other hand, movement in the interests from natural to sociable
sciences tends to establish bonds for mutually appreciation and interdisciplinary
collaboration. Unluckily, such action in reverse direction, from social and
humanistic sciences is hard to be noticed. Security and knowledge about security,
precisely, difusion of knowledge among scientists in natural and social sciences can
play a key role.
Key words: asphaliology, area, research, fundamental sciences, discipline,
interdiciplinarity, multidisciplinarity
