Abstract: This paper deals with the disciplinary dimension of a very new field called econophysics and shows that despite the fact that econophysics is regularly described as an interdisciplinary approach, it is in fact a multidisciplinary field. Beyond this observation, we note that recent developments suggest that econophysics could evolve towards a more integrated field. We therefore propose a prospective approach by analyzing how this field could become transdisciplinary. In this article, we focus on financial work, and we show that a common scheme is attainable and we investigate the possibilities of a trandisciplinary econophysics which will make possible to revisit the theoretical foundations of financial economics and develop new models and theories better suited to the management of financial risks and financial markets. The contribution of this article is twofold: on the one hand it clarifies the epistemological status of econophysics, and on the other, it studies the recent evolution of econophysics and shows how this field could evolve to become transdisciplinary.
