Levels of Abstraction in Logic and Human Action - GBC Bound Photocopy

With R.O. Gibson and D.J. Isaac

This book breaks entirely new ground by developing the relationships between the nature of propositional logic, the nature of the mental capacity of individuals, and the nature of social organizations. In making this linkage, it sets out a discontinuity theory of human functioning expressed in a hierarchical social organization. A remarkable equivalence in content is shown between the levels in each of the three systems.

This unusual work will be of interest to logicians, mathematicians and mathematical philosophers, psychologists, sociologists, information theorists, and organization specialists. More important, it demonstrates how these fields can be linked one to another.
