The complexity of knowledge requires multiple and plural research approaches, willing to interact and to dialogue with each other in view of the construction of new cognitive paradigms and new paths of research. Almost sixty years have passed since the publication of the famous pamphlet by C.P. Snow, The Two Cultures, (1959), which denounced the drastic separation between scientific and humanistic culture, however, resistance to a true and widespread practice of interdisciplinary research is still strong in the academic and institutional environments. In some cases the loss of the specificity of the research sectors is feared, in others there is doubt about the effectiveness of the dialogue between the knowledge applied indiscriminately to each field of study. Today the dialogue between the knowledges, declined in the plural, requires us a new vision of the relationship between humanists and neuroscientists, biologists, chemists and theoretical physicists, collaborative interpreters of the functioning mechanisms of cognitive processes that preside over the construction and cultural representation of each phenomenon that regards man and his social behavior. The volume includes the contributions by Marco Carapezza, Ambra Carta, Ignatius Licata, Rosa Rita Marchese, Franco Marineo, Massimo Privitera, Luca Scarlini.
