Neurocognitive Digital Studies

Trans-disciplinary Approach to Humanities

The problem is that cognitive science, linguistics, literature, neuroscience/brain studies, and the computational studies are being practised separately to work in their specific domains. Interlink tangentially touches upon when required in research work. The
separatist epistemic politics do not let the transdisciplinary research work be done easily where the interferences of researchers of various disciplines lead to an innovative conceptual domain of knowledge required for current and coming times. But an erratic derogatory remark “Jack of all trades, master of none” is often used as the attacking words for transdisciplinary/interdisciplinary researchers, while a researcher knows his domain well first before touching upon another subdomain or other domains of knowledge [1]. The first and foremost requirement of becoming transdisciplinary research is that one must know one’s domain of knowledge deeply. One moves from one’s domain towards another domain under a compulsion—epistemological condition and force, without which one thinks one’s work remains incomplete. There is a compulsion, a force, a condition, and a rational cause behind the move of a sincere researcher…
