This text is aimed at describing and characterizing interdisciplinary practices that are currently under use in scientific inquiry. Therefore, a categorization of new interdisciplinary arrangements is presented (border sciences, interdisciplines, and intersciences) as well as a typology of the several practices of interdisciplinary inquiry mobilized by today's science (import practices, crisscrossing, convergence, descentering, and compromising). As an example, the disciplinary statute of cognitive sciences is studied in some detail.
