In this volume, I will attempt to provide insight on the theme of connection through three perspectives, namely, system theory, psychology, and practice. These three all revolve around the same... More > concept: what happens, from the perspective of an entity, when that entity connects to another entity? Adaptivity, an aspect that represents an absolute positive value of its own accord from the perspective of the entity, is the key principle, in the light of which I will be examining the effects of the systems’ connections. By using system theory terminology, the first chapter discusses how two systems can connect. Also, some new notions are introduced to help understand how connections impact upon systems. The conclusions accepted in the first chapter will then in the second chapter, be framed in terms of the person, as a system, and its sub-systems, namely, cognitive schemata. The impact of the connections of these cognitive schemata on the human psyche will then be presented in a simplified model.< Less

From these, it is principally the specifics of human thinking and behavior that have been examined in detail. The main point of this model is its new approach to, and new slant on, modern academic research. Yet the conclusions of the model do not contradict current trends in modern psychology, but rather are in harmony with other cultural systems beyond the scope of science (such as religion, art, common sense).< Less

More > developed a thinking frame, a paradigm, that is independent of current research schools, but which integrates in a simple model existing results and theories of psychology.
