Significance Revisited

On my website is a new, very brief paper on the concept of Significance. Significance Revisited is technical Descriptive Psychology, which will interest some readers of this blog but perhaps not others, so I have posted it elsewhere for anyone interested. It’s not “Tony makes sense of …” so much as “How Tony makes sense of …”

Enjoy!

  2. “…observed pattern of occurrence of “What he is being by doing that”” – very nice, clean formulation, unifying behavioral significance and status.

  3. Hello Tony, Excellent & in line with basic insights of DP. This is so much more worthwhile than, alas, the 3 volumes of Herr Doctor Machs Veber I recently plowed through. I wonder if these PGO “tools” had been available pre-WWI, we could have been spared, oh, about a 1,000 tomes. We waste a lot of time because we don’t know how to think about behavior. Thought experiment: I am sitting here wondering if anyone has showcased DP, so to speak, by applying its methods & insights into narrative situations? In some ways, that is what writers do, whether it’s a Shakespearean aside or an omniscient narrator or “This is John Galt speaking.” The book writes itself in my imagination. Execution would be oh so much more beyond my poor talents, as they say. Best wishes & thanks for the post, Craig
