The concept of transdisciplinarity is an extent of complex expression in society. Currently, the human, social, and phychological contexts are connected and the science needs an answer about this phenomenon. This article conceptualizes the transdisciplinarity as a strategic application of complexity, which is a methodological concept that bases the transdisciplinarity.
