An inherent difficulty in trans-disciplinary general education programs is the lack of a theoretical framework from which to display the points of unity and convergence between those uniquely human endeavors that, in slavish compliance to custom, are yet discussed as distinct and separate concerns such as science, art, mysticism, philosophy, and so on. This lack of a general theory makes all attempts at integration seem strained and artificial. However, clues, hints, and some significant beginnings toward such a framework do exist in the work of several writers. A synthesis of those sources seems, perhaps, in order.
