Abstract

On what we know presents the reasoning behind the proposition that knowledge is not continuous. It follows that there is no ‘scientific reductionism’ with major consequences for psychology, with mind not being ‘reducible’ to the functioning of the brain. The paper concludes with questions to continue the line of thinking in improving our understanding of the external world and ourselves as part of that world.

Keywords: scientific reductionism, scientific methodology, Ashby tools, psychology, epistemology
