In order to advance in the field of transdisciplinarity, it is essential to move from the cognitive processes to the affectivity, assuming transdisciplinarity as a lived experience. Assuming transdisciplinarity as a lived experience imposes as a fun-damental question not the "how" but the "why" to do it, investigating the deep motivations that push us to make this transition. Strengthened by the thought of Pauli and Jung, the crucial question concerning transdisciplinarity arises: what reflections and discoveries from the natural sciences and the humanities need to be involved in order to overcome the differential dictated by Dilthey between the natural sciences and the spiritual sciences? A non-restrictive version of rationali-ty brings affectivity and cognition together; the recent discoveries of neurosci-ence support Pauli and Jung’s hypothesis that mind, body, psyche and matter are not mutually exclusive. that mind, body, psyche and matter constitute an insepa-rable unity, against any dualistic hypothesis of human experience.

Keywords: transdisciplinarity, natural sciences, human sciences, affectivity, lived experience, perspective of how, perspective of why, open conception of rationali-ty, inseparable unity of mind and body
