In the light of attributed the evident that the transdisciplinary understanding. these initial epistemological utmost importance at the approach steps, the concept of gnoseological level , is essential

Consequently, the whole symposiu

transdisciplinary approaches human knowledge.
At this stage, an additional question began to emerge: whether a transdisciplinary approach would be insightful not only for complex and global issues, but also for all kinds of issues.
Why and how to extend a transdisciplinary again, to a twofold reflection:

on the other side, when the word “simple” is used, many assumptions on

Thus, the inquiry into a given “simple” issue should not necessarily be stopped at the very first level, even when that level seems to provide a satisfactory explanation. When time and resources allow, in-depth investigations bring deeper understanding also on “simple” issues by unveiling more exhaustive aspects.
For a given object of study, there are conceptual tools, which actually seem better suited than others, However, it should not be overlooked that this depends both on what is being looked for in a given issue, and on what kind and level of analysis one may want to have. Consequently, at any time, and for any given issue, an approach marked by intellectual humility would always be desirable.
At the methodological level, for instance, it could be recognized that, despite the fact
that a given conceptual tool is currently being
