The Causal Pluralism and Holism in the Meta-Individual World Theory (in Russian)

2016. Vol. 13. No. 1. P. 115–153 [issue contents]

The current study was intended to present a current version of the meta-individual world (MIW) theory developed by Dorfman. Its core is the dual-system model. According to it, two systems are specified, namely, System 1 and System 2. One of the systems (System 1) unifies the personality and its closer social setting. Within this system, the personality extends to its closer social setting, making changes in it. Thus, the personality occupies the primary position and the closer social setting occupies the secondary position. This system carries a connection of the closer social setting to the personality. The other system (System 2) also connects the closer social setting to the personality, but in the opposite direction. Within this system, the closer social setting extends to the personality, making changes in it. Here, the closer social setting occupies the primary position and the personality occupies the secondary position. The two systems are distinct, operate in their own right and are relatively independent from one another, although they hold a common personal and social ground. Respectively, two kinds of phenomena are specified, namely, within each system and those under influence of the both systems. Thus, the latter brings dual qualities. In addition, a structuralist view is employed; it is shown on the lines of multidimensionality, namely, agency,possession, perspective-taking, and relatedness.
