(p.45) 4 Long-Wave Patterns Influence Research Attitudes

This chapter discusses patterns of research attitudes and enumerates several components and considerations, such as statement of the problem, social and economic factors, perceived and actual needs, human curiosity, recognition of new information, and appropriate methods; all of which should be viewed as vital prerequisites to research in general and, specifically, to interdisciplinary inquiries. Based on the analysis of case studies and other data, it is concluded that the aforementioned parameters are associated with one another, such that the absence of a single element will affect the expected outcomes. Also, these attempts to discover long-wave trends toward explorations of social problems might elicit interesting points of reference for future research that concentrate on the historical perspective. Despite these efforts, more comprehensive studies must be conducted in order to formulate a complete framework for interdisciplinary research.

Keywords:   long-wave patterns, research attitudes, social problems, curiosity, relationships, interdisciplinary approach
