| The science of psychological seeks to

| psychology (i.e., Cognitivism). It is
| incumbent, therefore, upon the science
| of psychological to demonstrate how such
| an enterprize is even possible, something
| which it has hitherto failed to do.
| This is where the real critical work in
| psychology lies; pscyhological science
| must account for its own activities by
| entering into its own domain and applying
| its own concepts and categories to itself
| instead of seeing itself at a descrete
| distance from its subject matter, as a
| special case to which its own concepts
| and categories do not apply; that is, the
| science of psychology must also be the
| psychology of science.
| this results in a Methdological corollary:
| a model is only complete in so far as
| it gives rise to the possibility of itself
| (Foerster, Riegler).
| i.e., neuropsychologists must be able to
| provide an account of how it is even
| possible for the brain to model the brain.
