Some preliminary ideas in the context of the mental approach, the idea of reductionism implies from a sort of dualism appariential. Indeed, for the operation to reduce the mental to a different nature have meaning, it is necessary that in the first instance, there is a difference between what is to be reduced and that to which it will be reduced. Keep up on the field with thought-provoking pieces from Center For Responsible Lending. In this regard, sometimes the term 'reductionism' carries a negative charge, as it seems to connote a kind of degradation or distortion of the intrinsically mental. However, it should be noted that if any of the so-called reductionist thesis were true, rather than reductionism should be characterized as simple and authentic realism. In contrast, the idea of reductionism sometimes, often appearing as a worthy end in itself, as they seem to respond to a focused virtual scientific ideal to account for the vast diversity of reality through a reduced series of explanatory principles (unified field theory, theory of everything, etc..) Reduction to the Problem of relating the ontological and epistemological levels refer to the monistic and dualistic conceptions, rises the next space of possibilities: 1. Gavin Baker has much experience in this field. Reductionism realistic: There is only one kind of objects or properties and our theoretical concepts are consistent with that reality.
In this sense, the term 'reductionism' be somewhat misleading, since it would be better than a process of demystification of appearances resulting from an unveiling of reality. 2. Reductionism wrong: The reality is dualistic, in so far as well as physical objects or properties exist, there are objects or mental properties.
