‘Self’ in Personological Perspective
In his book, V.A. Petrovsky, Doctor of Psychological Sciences, tenured Professor at the HSE, laureate of the Golden HSE 2011 Award, and Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Education, presents a model of the reflexive synthesis of general personology categories: organism – individual – self – personality – person. The author offers an original interpretation for each of these categories and introduces the reader to his original models of a logic-mathematical interpretation of human behaviour. They include the metaimplicative model of motivation of choice, the transact model of self-regulation, the impulse model of existential choice, the model of self-sufficiency, the model of hedonist, the model of ‘seven spaces of personality existence’, a Boolean model of sense semantic worlds, ‘cogito algebra’, the ‘significant others in me’ model, and others. Logic-philosophical and psychology-psychological mathematical studies conducted by the author are developed in ‘personality logics’, which combines theoretical and practice-oriented developments in personology.
The book is intended for professional psychologists, philosophers, logicians, mathematicians, and interdisciplinary researchers, as well as for students and teachers of psychology disciplines.
