Consilience is the idea that evidence from independent, unrelated sources can come together to support strong conclusions. The word dates back to 1840, and is an assimilation of the Latin prefix "com" (with, together) and "salire" (to leap), literally translating to "jumping together." The term returned to relevance in the late 20th century, when in 1998 the biologist Edward O. Wilson published "Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge," a book that proposed methods of uniting the fields of humanities and sciences and searchedsearching for a unified theory of knowledge.

...

Modern day research in consilience reflects E. O. Wilson's theories from his 1998 text, especiallyparticularly regarding the practice of sustainable development. Columbia University's Consilience: the Journal of Sustainable Development is a prominent example. The journal is run by a team of undergraduate and graduate students under the leadership of Columbia University faculty, and aims to facilitate dialogue on sustainable development by publishing scholarly articles and pieces from students, professors, researchers and practionerspractitioners from a wide variety of disciplines and continents. The journal has been published regularly since 2008.
