Design is eminent throughout different disciplines of science, engineering, humanities, and art. However, within these fields their understanding differs significantly. There still is a profound lack of interdisciplinary research on these issues. The same words are not even guaranteed to carry the same meaning as soon as one crosses over to other disciplines. Therefore, related synergies between disciplines remain largely unexplored and unexploited. Today, the concepts of design are vaguely defined and ways of approaching them diverge substantially. This book will present various uses of design from design of the inorganic, design of organisms, design of products as well as design of the minds. This book will address design to gain a deeper understanding of design across various disciplines to support design science as a discipline that integrates the vast amount of isolated knowledge sources.
