    Abstract

    VAN DER WESTHUIZEN, Zander. Transversality and interdisciplinary discussion in postfoundational practical theology - reflecting on Julian Müller's interdisciplinary guidelines. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2010, vol.66, n.2, pp. 1-5. ISSN 0259-9422.

    This article reflected on Julian Müller's paper on the practical guidelines for conducting interdisciplinary work, a process which is similar to that which the author used during his own PhD studies on mentorship. Beginning this article by discussing postfoundationalism and transversal rationality, the author continued by describing his own process of interdisciplinary conversation, where various scholars participated in the interdisciplinary conversation on mentorship. An interview with a mentor and mentee was used as a local, real narrative in the process. In the final section, the author reflected upon his own process in relation to that of Müller and suggested a process with three movements for interdisciplinary work.

    Keywords : postfoundational; Practical Theology; interdisciplinary discussion; mentorship; narrative research; methodology; transversality.
