Word of the Day: Synergy
It would be difficult to open a business book or magazine would coming across this term. Synergy (sĭn’ər-jē) refers to a situation where the combined output of two parts is larger the the sum of their individual outputs. That is, when two plus two equals five. Businessmen often justify mergers or acquisitions with synergies that will emerge from the combined companies.
But in fact hard evidence for the synergies that such deals are supposed to bring is scarce. (The Economist)
This is a natural synergy that really ought to be part of how we approach curriculum design in these two fields most of the time. (Washington Post)

if some one can explain lucidly the words ‘ontology’, ‘epistemology’ and ‘metaphysics’!
thanks once again.
