The Structure of Human Reflexion

The Reflexional Psychology of Vladimir Lefebvre


Harvey Wheeler

Vladimir Lefebvre's mathematical model of cognitive reflexion, together with applications; plus thirteen evaluations by relevant authorities. Lefebvre's chapter is an algebraic description of a special hypothetical «processor», intrinsic to in humans, that models the self and others. The model's «predictions» of personality constructs, culture conflicts, musicological scales and quantum models are presented, together with experimental confirmations. Most of the critics (Jack Adams-Webber, William Batchelder, Konstantin Bogatyrew, Louis Kauffman, Victorina Lefebvre, L.B. Levitin, Ernest McClain, Anatol Rapoport, Richard Sacksteder, Frederick Turner, Harvey Wheeler and Robert Zajonc) are favorable. Some offer different interpretations and propose modifications.
Contents: Key Words: Mathematical Psychology; Reflexional Cognition; Construct Theory; Soviet/American Ethical Systems; Conflict Resolution; Quantum Theory; Golden Secton; Just Tuning; Universum. Summary: A quasi-Platonic (gamma algebra) model of a quasi-Lockean (reflexional) model of human cognition; a path breaking account of self consciousness and innate judgment protocols in, e.g., ethical, prudential, aesthetic and juridical systems. Lefebvre's model demonstrates how human cognition is possible; why Marr and Geschwind processes are feasible; and why a platonic Univiversum is a plausible implicate. There are no similar books.
