This sentence was taken as a methodic procedure for
investigating philosophical questions regarding scientific
psychology. To accomplish such a proposal is a very hard
task to our mentality dominated by a certain mechanical
way of seeing and thinking the world, specially for psychologists
because they do not usually consider their
problems from a religious point of view, even those religiously
oriented. They believe all matters are liable to be
subject of scientific treatment and never think they are
working with religious categories and they also do not
realize that in their scientific theories religious beliefs are
embedded. Good illustrations of it can be found in the
ways they deal with both the problem of the self and of the
self-knowledge; some of them appeal to neuro-physiology
or psychopharmacology and try to explain exactly the
immeasurable coordination between mind and brain involved,
and others defend psycho-sociological theories.
