Theoretical Psychology: There Is a Cause for It to Really Emerge

The paper with such challenging title appears possible to write owing to novations revealed, though being in essence a kind of omitted possibilities because of not having their explicit articulation in the psychology.
Owing to the complex approach being together evolutionarily biological, phenomenological, and speculative one, the evolutionary correlates of human mentality in the animal world were revealed: the all-biological principle of tolerance and the narrowness of the attention’s volume. Their modern appearances turned out to be the cognitive principle of tolerance (CPT) and the shortage of panoramic thinking (SPT)... >>

A global Guardian question answered

The question answered by Dr. Uladzimir Tratsiakou, was: What role social media should play in development?

Journalists of social media can and should now play in social development essentially more significant role -- after having realized which almost not ploughed TOPICAL areas there are for them to highlight.
I see their participation in renewed variant – in cooperation with NGOs, mostly international (INGOs). Owing to membership in them journalists get additional possibility to have information causes to highlight any new social initiatives and project proposals, to be themselves initiators of something supported by NGOs/INGOs, to get scientific consultation by and co-authorship with scientific experts of their organizations, etc. In additional, they might be promoters of reorganization of INGOs “blessed by the Nature”. ...>>

Stanislaw Jerzy Lec as a Thinker of 21st Century

As if interview granted by Stanislaw Lec

The very first, categorical imperative of human race's survival

Four centuries ago French thinker Blaise Pascal wrote: «All our dignity is consisted in the thought. That is it, our thought, which elevates us… So, let us work hard to think good – here is the main principle of moral». In new times new causes 'to think good’ have appeared, the morality being only one of them. Pascal’s ordinance is now actualized more, it sounds even as Change your mind!

Some words why it is so. The evolution of our animal ancestors was proceeding at sufficient high selection’s pressure. In result, our operative field of conscience is narrow. In other words, we had inherited evolutionary the «narrow minds». Just because of such our peculiarity the human logic is ‘black-white’, systematic thinking and synthetic ideas are rather rear among people, losing very often sight of something. This «narrow-mindedness», having been formerly an advantage in surviving (as allowing quicker behavior reactions), now is a shortage. The cause is that discrepancy is more and more between ‘the same’ individual mental possibilities of people and the raising complexity of their existence’s conditions.

So, a limit to our existence is felt yet. To overcome the shortage of panoramic thinking (SPT) -- just so we can reformulate Blaise Pascal’s ordinance. One of appearance of SPT is aggressiveness. The Austrian biologist Konrad Lorentz wrote: «We have weighty bases to consider inner-specific aggression as the most serious danger threatening to Humankind... But the prospect to fight this danger will not by no means better if we consider it as something metaphysical and inevitable; if on the contrary we will try to trace a chain of the natural causes of its origin, then, this may help». Well, a hope is existing.
Really, it is known that more educated people are less aggressive. So, we can admit that the special directed education methods, developing panoramic thinking (PT), will be able to less it to normal, civilization level and to make for pacification in the world. If we take into account else that with SPT any fatal errors are inevitable, and that the raising might of the civilization makes their after-effects more and more catastrophic, then reforming the national education systems in direction of PT is getting not wished but imperatively compulsory.

A criminal diagnosis: narrow-mindedness

It happened really many times: people shocked by the crime, analyzing it, just speculated: "How did that happen? Some beast of him!" Trying to find in the killer’s biography something out of the ordinary, and having found (for example, as being the child pulled tails of cats) they sighed with relief: "Well, what do you want... All’s clear."

This desire to "disassociate" from the offender, as if to prove their otherness to him, it is a kind of psychological defense, an attempt to suppress the disturbing thought: "could not I take the same case?" But the point is that to fence themselves is not always possible. Because the "degenerate" is very often of quite a happy family, having no friends among recidivists. People refers to the guilty, "How could you act so?”. Who-who but the offender should know everything for certain. However in response is just something unintelligible: «Like an eclipse which had been...". Maybe, in fact, the eclipse of the mind? ...>>

This recommendation might be considered as enveloping a significant part of methodological means for us to think better - when “more widely” is understood directly, - and envelops all possible in general – if it is understood with taking into account not only the widened base of concrete thinking process, but as well presupposes self-controlling thinking for us not to admit distortions of the thought because of pragmatic considerations or emotional subjectivism. ...>>

All humanity must have been fooled

An essay by Dr. Uladzimir Tratsiakou

It is known from Frenchmen: “Le trait characteristique de la betise c’est qu’elle ne s’explique pas”. I.e.: “Characteristic trait of the stupidity is that it is unknowable”.
We feel an insult in this utterance: it is no big pleasure for author of the aphorism to confess to something what he is not able to apprehend, but he does it wishing to look as quite not familiar with the stupidity. At that, he shows in this his sense of humor.
Let us try to cast a glance at the science with panoramic view. We may see then not very big island of well set scientific knowledge washed by huge ocean of unknowable. There where the island’s littoral, it is seen turbid water of near-scientific knowledge, and bottom of true is only slightly visible through. The ocean may appear bottomless, but it would be stupid being stood on firm scientific ground of the island, to say that to the bottom, i.e. to the true, nobody will have reached ever. The aphorism is in explicit contradiction with such the panoramic view, so we may diagnose a narrow panorama of his thinking. If so, we may doubt that the stupidity is unknowable. ... >>

Anthony Judge's looking after human thinking

It is the lecture 3 at Free School for Panoramic Thinking beings a part of the article what Anthony Judge posted for visitors of his website www.laetusinpraesens.org on 11/18/2001, soon after 09/11/2001 events in USA . It was named Ways of Thinking, Perception and Analysis; its first chapter, Binary Thinking, is just subject of the lecture chosen for the School.

This subject is of great meaning for understanding peculiarities of our thinking, shortage of panoramic thinking being one of them. Given highly expressed pressure of eliminating selection, evolution prehistory of humans had been rather hard. Our ancestors to survive within cruel surrounding were forced continuously “to divide by two”, i.e. to distinguish “dangerously – not dangerously”, “us – them”, “predator – not predator”, “poisonous – not poisonous”, “eatable – not eatable”. To meditate about thinner distinctions -- e.g.: “if it is something/somebody dangerous then how much?” – might be worth of the very life.
It is known the human had gone out of evolution (in other words, out of wild nature) too early, so he could not have got another logics of thinking but binary. The author's merit is he had turned out able while analyzing terroristic—anti-terroristic problem to reveal remarkable audacity and independence of his thought. All that should be moreover instructive for those who are intending to overcome their evolution-conditioned backwardness of human mentality, the shortage of panoramic thinking, that Anthony Judge was juxtaposing his opinion to policy of anti-terrorism adopted by heads of many states. ...>>

Future evolution of the life seen by John Stewart through his “widerscope”, with my comments

Evolution sense of notions and techniques used by the human science

Introduction

There is no difficulty to have seen anthropomorphic tendency in development of the technical devices and mechanisms. Here is how Academician I.I. Artobolevskiy expressed it:

«The man, as philosophers said, is the measure of all the things. Man is not only finely adapted to his surroundings, but he accommodate to himself «the second Nature», i.e. the techno-sphere created around him. Handles of all controlling mechanisms, electrical knife-switches and usual switches, doors and stairs, cars and aircrafts – all those are created for people and in conformity with their sizes» ([1], p. 36).

Let us put a question: maybe the artificial «intellectual surrounding», i.e. the science, in similar way has been adapted as well to properties of human reason? In other words, maybe we, peering at Nature's mirror for Nature to cognize, see at the mirror not only (not so much) Nature, but as well (as) its reflection in human minds? ...>>
