I have a problem making a distintinction between these 3 words. Can you help me. Thank you in advance
Explanation: multidiciplinary = "combining several specialized disciplines (as those in the field of applied social science) for a common purpose (use of a multidisciplinary approach by a child guidance clinic)"
Interdiciplinary = "characterized by participation or cooperation of two or more disciplines or fields of study (an interdisciplinary conference) : drawing on or contributing to two or more disciplines (interdisciplinary approach to anthropology)"
Pluridiciplinary is not listed in Websters III unabridges!
