As it was expressed in the Introduction to the volume on Neurath (vol. 18 of the series LEUS), science is a dynamic process in which the assimilation of new phenomena, perspectives and hypotheses and their subsequent organization in the scientific corpus takes place just slowly. Therefore, a permanently landscape of apparent disunity is an unavoidable consequence of the scientific gradual integration process. Some thinkers prefer to label this recurrent circumstance 'crisis', but they seem to ignore its temporary nature. Only a retrospective view on the practical results of scientific enterprise and of the science itself, grant us a plain testimony of the unity of human knowledge.In this book, the readers will find many arguments, case studies and examples in favor of the unity of science. These contributions touch upon various scientific perspectives, such as: Physics, Computer Science, Biology, Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology, Thermodynamics, Economics.
