Abstract:

Brunswiks description of what must take place in the perceptual process is viewed as veridical in that it is independent of existing psychological theories and of epistomological postulates as to how man knows what he knows or as to what science is. Although this description may be found incorrect in the future, it is to be expected that with the increase of factual knowledge and conceptual sophistication many additional details may be added to it. The power of this description is such that it can be used to develop a chain of thought that is in many ways in opposition to Brunswiks assumptions concerning knowledge and science. Such a development is attempted in this paper.
