In this chapter the argument elaborated throughout the book, as that public administration cannot be but an interdisciplinary study, is summarized. Attention is given to the fact that the study is home to quite different types of scholars: academic researchers, academic educators, practitioner oriented scholars, and practitioner oriented educators. Public administration has to be art, and a craft/profession, and a science. The complexity of contemporary government requires no less.

Keywords: unity of knowledge; interdisciplinarity; weak integration
