In writing the current ebook i've got had in brain the next targets: - To suggest a theoretical, finished view of the area of instinct. - to spot and set up the experimental findings on the topic of instinct scattered in a large choice of analysis contexts. - to bare the tutorial implications of the assumption, constructed for technology and arithmetic schooling. many of the present monographs within the box of instinct are frequently eager about theoretical debates - definitions, philosophical attitudes, historic concerns. (See, specifically the works of untamed (1938), of Bunge (1 962) and of Noddings and Shore (1 984).) A striking exception is the publication via Westcott (1968), which mixes theoretical analyses with the author’s personal experimental stories. yet, to date, no try has been made to spot systematically these findings, unfold through the examine literature, which may give a contribution to the interpreting of the mechanisms of instinct. quite often the proper reports don't refer explicitly to instinct. even if this time period is used it happens, often, as a self-evident, logic time period.

They know in principle that they may be wrong but they go on reasoning as if they were convinced that they are correct at every step. 38 CHAPTER 3 The control stage may start after the entire sequence of thoughts has been accomplished. Sometimes we are aware that we may be wrong and that we play a double game. Sometimes we forget the game completely and we are genuinely convinced that we are correct before any verification.

It is worth remembering that Cantor himself, after having obtained a proof supporting the equivalence of the respective sets - a proof which in his eyes was unquestionable - was still worried with regard to the validity of the theorem! In a letter addressed to Dedekind on the 29th of June 1877 he wrote the famous sentence: “I see but I do not believe” (Cavaillès, 1969, p. 169). The fact of obtaining a proof supporting the equivalence should have strengthened his conviction. But four days after having written to Dedekind that his conviction is without restriction and after having obtained the formal proof, he still seemed shocked by his discovery.

Reasoning is an automatic process guided globally by the “strategic” purposes of the thinker but only automatically in its details, through an acquired system of automatic feedbacks. Any attempt consciously to control a thinking process step by step certainly destroys its fluency, its continuity and, in fact, renders it impossible as a productive endeavor. 40 CHAPTER 3 It does not follow that overconfidence cannot be dealt with.
