Beschreibungen

This SpringerBrief provides an interdisciplinary synthesis based on psychology, logic, mathematics, cognitive science, and the history of science. It presents psychology as a science that suffers from a reduced understanding of the most fundamental logic in our practical-bodily encounters with the world, including with our fellow human beings. The Brief offers a new “dual” logic that is based on the duality between identification and description of objects, including persons. The Brief ties in modern mathematics as a tool that can be used to catch this duality in a precise manner. Featured topics in this Brief include: The emergence of Mechanism.The duality in animal and human subject-object relations.Psychology’s compatibility with natural sciences.Four cornerstones of modern mathematics.The Extensional Method. A New Logical Foundation for Psychology will be of interest to psychologist, philosophers, and mathematicians concerned with basic theoretical and methodological problems. 
Chapter 1. A Historical and Logical Perspective.- Chapter 2. Overcoming the Mechanistic and Functionalistic Reductions.- Chapter 3. The Dual Structure in Our Encounter Within the World.- Chapter 4. An Axiomatic System Describing a New Dual Logic.- Chapter 5. Perspectives on the Foundation of Mathematics.- Chapter 6. Implications for Psychological Theory.- Chapter 7. Appendix with Technical Details.
