To the issue of demarcation of socio-psychological taxonomy's components
The article is dedicated to the issue of demarcation of components of socio-psychological taxonomy.
Theoretical analysis of national and post-Soviet socio-psychological discourse is used as a research method. It is shown that the problem of demarcation of components of social-psychological taxonomy, first of all, refers to the blurring of orderliness at the level of the ratio and volume of the taxon. It is noted that from the point of view of the primary specification of the socio-psychological taxon it is postulated its fundamental composition of elements. In this regard, the criterion of the primary specification is the ability to calculate the elements of the taxon and its result, due to which the secondary specification of the taxon becomes dependent on the qualitative specificity of the elements that make up the summation.
It is emphasized that the qualitative specificity of the elements of the population arises from the differentiation of the concepts of element/unit. This pattern brings the issue of demarcation of the components of socio-psychological taxonomy under the discourse of the idea of the whole.
It is noted that the socio-psychological interpretation of the idea of the whole in the context of the demarcation of the components of socio-psychological taxonomy causes the reproduction of the established problem of integrity, and also raises a purely subject-specific question about the specifics of socio-psychological taxonomy, where the integrity stands as a formative principle. It is shown the possibility of extrapolation of methodical instructions developed for the concept of "unit of psyche’s analysis" to the concept of "unit of socio-psychological analysis". At the same time, the term “personality” is substantiated, to sum up, the concept of “unit of analysis of socio-psychological”.
It is substantiated the formulation of the problem of demarcation of components of socio-psychological taxonomy as a question of the variability of socio-psychological forms of the psyche.
As an empirical interpretation of the relationship between the problem of variability of socio-psychological forms of psyche with the problematic scope of its future development, an assumption is made about the specifics of socio-psychological conditionality of image characteristics.
