It seems to me that the discussion so far has largely supported my
"top-down=bad, bottom-up=good" rule of thumb for interdisciplinarity; that
is, those administrators who facilitate and encourage the kind of ID that
is generated by leading-edge scholarship and research fit into the
bottom-up category. The administrators and granting-agency officials who
design and impose their models of ID derived from their reading of the
Zeitgeist or whatever are the ones whom I was trying to make a little more
self-conscious and self-questioning.
