Conte’s Approach to Human Cognition by Application of Quantum Mechanics: a Revisitation of the Yin-Yang Theory and Jung’s Psyche Model by Using Such Quantum Approach
Ferda Kaleağasıoğlu
According to the ancient Chinese philosophy, manifestations in our reality follow a pattern of continuous transformation between immaterial (Yang) and material (Yin), two opposed, mutually interdependent and consuming forces. This cycling and pulsating movement is not only observed in the rhythm of life, but also throughout the evolution of psyche, as Jung states. In his model, psyche is the total of all psychic processes, composed of two complementary and antithetical spheres, namely consciousness and the unconscious. Continuous transition of the raw material of the psyche, unites the opposite functions, shaping the attitude. These elaborations find confirmation on some recent advances formulated in Conte’s quantum model of cognition.
