Von Domars’s Principle and Schizophrenia

Von Domars’s Principle and Schizophrenia

the Yin-Yang Five Elements theory and Von Domars’s Principle: Myths and Schizophrenia

I have been familiar with Chinese philosophy for many years and have considered various things. One of them, " the Yin-Yang Five Elements theory," is described in my book "Plucking the Buds of Disasters" as follows.

Note that the simple meaning of the word is that "gyou" means "act", not "element". The Five Pillars are "work, function", not "particles" such as elements and elementary particles. (* 1) If so, it should be "five things" instead of five gyous. For example, "iron" is one of metal. It is a powerful weapon from ancient times and "cuts and hurt people". By the way, "Plutonium", the spawn of the atomic bomb. It is extremely toxic and can cause lung cancer if inhaled even slightly. Although the phenomenon is different, it is similar to iron in that it "hurts and attacks people". These "work" is called "metal", and the Wuxing theory is a theory that finds similarity between the phenomenons of the world.

Any phenomenon is classified into five elements, and the excess or deficiency causes a disaster. Trees are divided into 2 x 5 = 10 ways, such as wood in kou (yang), otsu (yin), fire in hei (yang), and tei (yin) (Jukkan). This is the Ying Yang Five Goyous. 23P to pick the buds of a disaster In the case of this description, since "work" = "act" is used to find the similarity of actual things, the logic is to ignore the general differences between individual things and find the similarity by "work". On the other hand, there are the following theories regarding the tendency of such recognition methods to fall into.

The Von Domars’s principle . The principle that psychiatrist Von Domars inductively derived from abundant cases, explaining the myths and world grasp patterns of schizophrenic patients. In normal recognition, when there is a basic grammatical syntax "A does B", by the subject A We recognize the actor, but someone by the predicate B recognizes the actor. In this case, "warming the body" means recognizing "kotatsu" and "sun" as the same thing because they are the same effecter. This principle can also be applied to the description and analysis of computer languages. : "Hatena keyword" that I registered Certainly, the Yin-Yang Five Elements theory is a mythical recognition method, and in a sense, it is an excellent methodology in the sense that it finds the similarity between iron and plutonium in "metal" with "aggression" as the key, but Von Domars's principle, this methodology is an easy recognition method for patients with schizophrenia, and in a sense, such a recognition method can be said to be dangerous. In fact, the predicate "attack" makes us think that "iron" and "plutonium" are the same, and there is a danger of forgetting that they really only indicate "similarity".

A word of the day: the Yin-Yang Five Elements theory is amethodology that is like a treasure for humankind in a sense, but by Von Domars’s principle We must correct the excessive "identification".

Von Domars’s Principle and Aristotle's logic

Here, a psychiatrist named Silvano Arieti has published most of the specialized books in "Interlibrary Lotnia" Volumes 1 and 2 (Misuzu Shobo), and in this book, It also mentions ""Von Domars's principles", so I wanted to read it, but there is no library in my prefecture that has this book, and I payed 700 yen for mailing from libraries outside the prefecture in the form of interlibrary loan. I was able to read it. However, since the book has a total of 1000 pages, I read the part that describes the " Von Domars’s Principle ". (Since Arrietty died in 1981, schizophrenia is now called schizophrenia.in Japan,past精神分裂病→now統合失調症) Von Domars formulated and published this principle in 1925, but Arrieti does not disagree with the validity of this principle, and seems to see it as a given theory. .. An example like this is given. One girl thinks she is the Virgin Maria, and her logic is this:

1) Maria is virgin.
2) I am a virgin.
3) So I'm Maria.

Arrieti calls this kind of thinking pattern "old-logical thinking." This idea is "wrong" in Aristotle's syllogism, but in this girl there is a non-Aristotle-like paleologic thinking. That is why it is "correct". From Von Domars’s principle , the predicate is the same, so the subject is also the same. By the way, there was a monk who burned Kinkakuji Temple in Kyoto after the war, but in the style of Yukio Mishima

1) A woman is beautiful.
2) Kinkakuji is beautiful.
3) That's why Kinkakuji is a woman.


Is it such a logical development that the woman = Kinkakuji was burned down? Mishima was also writing a dangerous novel. I will quote a part that considers the relationship between Aristotle's logic and von Domars' principle. The identity is that A is A, never B. However, according to Von Domars's principle, if B has the property of A, then B can be A. According to the law of noncontradiction, it is impossible that A is A and not A at the same time and in the same place. However, if we follow Von Domars's principle, we would look at A as A and at the same time as B (ie non-A), focusing on the common properties of A and B. “The law of excluded middle“(排中律)says that A must be either A or not. In other words, there can be no intermediate state. Paleological thinking seems to deny this law of excluded middle, as it tends to compress some subjects. Things often appear to be synthesized from A and B. Interpretation of schizophrenia Volume 1 332P How is it, for some people, Aristotle's logic does not hold. However, the explanation about the law of excluded middle is difficult to u stand, but the phrase "The way of the road is not the same as the usual way" in Chapter 1 of "Lao Tzu" may be helpful. .. Lao Tzu's fundamental morality, "road," is an assertion that "it is not an ordinary road," but it is meant to be placed as "an ordinary road" to prevent it from reaching an excessively occult state. Can also be taken. (A person named Zhaozhou, a famous Zen Buddhist priest (Zen has a close relationship with the Daojia idea), was asked by his disciples, "What is the road?" And answered, "The road, then it is straight to the capital.(” Zen--Living things in modern world”: Kazuyoshi Kino: NHK Books) Lao Tzu claims that all things have front and back ... yin and yang, and even one thing has conflicting aspects. There is no law of excluded middle in that duality. That's why the law of excluded middle doesn't hold in the world of "Von Domars = Lao Tzu". In particular, Lao Tzu's writings describe the world in which the law of excluded middle does not hold. Apparently, many Eastern thoughts and philosophies have the same ideas as Lao Tzu. Even in the first division of physics, "quantum mechanics," light and electrons talk about the true state of matter beyond the law of excluded middle, which is "both particles and waves."

A word of the day:Von Domars principle is a law that can find a big logical flaw in the typical logic from ancient times, especially that of Aristotle. The danger of logic that abandoned being a myth. The principle of von Domars can be applied to the interpretation of the Ying-Yang Five Elements theory of Chinese philosophy.

どうです、人によっては、アリストテレスの論理学は成り立たないのです。ただ、排中律についての解説は解りにくいですが、「老子」第1章にある「道の道う(いう)可きは、常の道に非ず。」という言葉が参考になるかも知れません。老子の言う根本道徳である「道」は「常の道ではない」という主張ですが、これを「常の道である」と置いて、過剰なオカルトチックな境地に至るのを防止する意味にも取ることができます。(老荘思想と縁の深い禅宗の名僧・趙州さんというひとは、「道とはなんですか?」と弟子に問われ「道か、それなら都にまっすぐだ」と答えています。「禅 現代に生きるもの:紀野一義NHKブックス」参照)
