Starting from two different case studies---cancer explanatory theories and musical consonance and dissonance perception theories---we aim to show how different analytical aspects of complex phenomena can be grasped by apparently divergent accounts. Reaching a more adequate understanding of these phenomena thus needs an integrated systemic view in which every partial solution enlightens a particular aspect of the very same phenomenon. Such systemic viewpoint shifts the focus from different explanations to analytic dimensions that integrate the multidimensional phenomenology of our case studies: cancer pathology and music perception. Taking into consideration these dimensions means understanding the relationship between the systems and the environment in a discrete, continuous and embodied, i.e. context-dependent, way. To this purpose, we need to integrate the understanding activity through an authentic transdisciplinary approach.
