CONCEPT CROSSING 1)3)
"The combination of concepts from different fields of specialization" (M. MARUYAMA, 1985, p.387).
Concept crossing produces cross fertilization of ideas and techniques, and enhances creativity. By analogy with A. KOESTLER's concept of bisociation, it could be called "multisociation".
According to MARUYAMA, this technique should be associated with design looping and experience looping. In this way it becomes possible to evade from lineal causal stereotypes (1994, p.37).
