We examined the concept of interdisciplinarity and what makes social science an interdisciplinary topic in Week 1. Gerontology is a highly interdisciplinary social science, as it draws on research, theories, and ideas from many different fields to better address the topic of aging. This week’s material asked you to examine aging from the perspectives of the five other social sciences we have examined in this course. Choose two of the resources and answer the following questions:
What two social science fields do the resources you chose represent?
What does each source add to your understanding of the issues in gerontology? How would it affect your understanding of this topic if you looked at it from one perspective?
What are the consequences if a social scientist has incomplete knowledge of a topic?
