Dominic McIver Lopes, A Layered, Bounded, Integrated Approach to Research on the Arts Across Disciplines, Leonardo

Cooperation among arts scholars is thought to be hampered by the division of research on the arts into two cultures, one scientific, one humanistic. This paper proposes an alternative model for research into the arts wherein multiple levels of explanation focussed on well-bounded phenomena integrate research across academic disciplines. Two case studies of research that fits the model are presented.
