1. Slide Set 4 The Development of a Unified Theory of the Philosophical and Social Sciences The need for the Intellectual Dark Web to advance the Philosophical and Social Sciences George McMillan III April 30, 2019 unifiedtheoryofthesocialsciences.com
2. Abstract • This slide set explains how the foundational, political and economic areas of philosophy of the past can be paralleled with a series of post Darwinian and post Freudian psychological theories, which naturally merge with Aristotle’s Six Forms of Government as the central framework of the system to form a micro-to-macro behavioral model. This micro-macro behavioral pairing of psychological and political frameworks readily merges with macro economic/demographic statistical models to complete a dual independent variable system, which links directly to a Four Category Geopolitical Form Model as an outcome measure system. • This system of frameworks: (a) parallels foundational, political and economic philosophical theories of the past with a series of empirical social scientific measurement frameworks as the means of linking ultimate cause with proximate cause in one sense; while (b) the linking of micro and macro behavioral science measurement systems in series in a singular Cartesian system achieves a “unification of the behavioral sciences” (Gintis 2006), which (c) achieves a number of longstanding objectives explained in the slide set, presented after the primary texts are presented in thumbnail pictures on the next five slides.

8. Section One The “unification of the behavioral sciences” can be easily developed outside of the Western University System Section One explains why “the unification of the behavioral sciences”, as Gintis (2006) refers to the project, is actually easy as all the elements have existed for decades or longer. The primary barrier to complete a unified theory, to be achieved by filling in the gap between Tooby and Cosmides existing Integrated Causal Model in instinctual drive evolutionary theory, and existing economic/demographic statistical models, is accomplished by supplying the environmental shaping frameworks from the soft philosophical and social sciences that is the barrier to unify the micro and macro social sciences. The secondary barrier is the Western University system itself, and since the unified theory is actually easy, the secondary barrier can be circumvented by establishing an alternative forum devoted to the “unification of the behavioral sciences.”
9. The lateral integration of micro and macro behavioral frameworks • This slide set series as a whole is devoted to… • the explanation, application and development of the lateral sequencing and integration of post Darwinian evolutionary and post Freudian psychological micro behavioral theories • which easily merge and integrates with macro behavioral political, economic/demographic frameworks • to form a dual independent variable Cartesian system • that links to a Four Category Geopolitical Form Model (i.e. First, Second, Third and Fourth World Countries) as the outcome measure, • based on the two primary trends of technology and population growth over time, • and the two secondary trends of industrial physical plant from ‘North to South’, and the mass migration of people from ‘South to North’, • all linked together in series, form a Unified Theory of the Philosophical and Social Sciences. • Sidebar Charts • https://ourworldindata.org/world-population-growth • https://www.learner.org/courses/envsci/unit/text.php?unit=5&secNum=4
10. The list of longstanding objectives and methodological criteria in thumbnails • The system is designed to meet the criteria of: • Bacon (1620), • Descartes (1637), • Popper (1934), • Harsanyi (1960, 1966 and 1969), • Homans (in Faris 1964), • E. O. Wilson (1975 and 1998), • Strauss and Cropsey (1987), • Tooby and Cosmides (1992), • Pinker (2002), and • Gintis (2006 and 2009).
11. Research design, explanatory theory and scientific model development • This opening slide set argues that • the development of a unified theory of micro and macro behavioral sciences is actually easy • with the Hume-Smith vs Marx-Engels based research design • that generates the development of a singular explanatory theory and scientific model • that is the subject of this slide set series.
12. Post modernism and the intellectual decline of the University • The problem is therefore not the development of: • an integrative methodology, • a common integrative causal theme • and a compatible set of frameworks • as Gintis 2006 and 2009 contended. • The actual problem lies in… • the severe intellectual decline in the anti-behavioral scientific era of ‘critical theory’ in psychology and sociology, and ‘post modernism’ in the discipline of Philosophy, • which has spread like a cancer throughout the soft philosophical and social sciences • as argued by Strauss and Cropsey (1987), Bloom (1988) and Hicks (2011).
13. E. O. Wilson and the “Consilience” project • Specifically, • the academicians in the discipline of Philosophy no longer have the methodological training to advance any area of their own discipline, • and therefore can no longer serve the purpose of the master discipline of the human studies as it was originally designed to be by the Ancient Greeks. • Since the development of a ‘unified theory’ is actually easy, • the “void” in the human studies discussed by E. O. Wilson 1998, • has to be filled with an alternative pro behavioral scientific analytical forum, which has to be created.
14. Post modernist academia is the barrier to progress • As this slide set explains, • the components of a “unified theory of the philosophical and social sciences” have all been developed in the second half of the 20th Century, • while the pro behavioral scientific movement has been steadily evolving on the “Intellectual Dark Web” over the last several years that severely criticizes the post modernist movements in the soft human studies, • which is now a severe impediment to progress of the philosophical and social sciences as a whole. • Sidebar charts • Molyneux and Hicks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkfH87CgKOQ&t=23s • Peterson and Hicks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hj7hbTa9G_0
15. The IDW as the master discipline • However, the mere criticism of ‘post modernism’ is insufficient, • the only means of overcoming the era of post modernism is with an actual singular explanatory scientific theory and model • as proof that the human studies are indeed conducive to theoretical modeling, • achieved via the integration of the micro and macro behavioral sciences • that demonstrates its’ superiority in its predictive power • designed for real world analysts who make large scale asset management decisions on a day-to-day basis while forecasting years in advance. • Sidebar screenshots • Hicks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7yBHjiCK3g • Saad https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBgQFrcB8zw
16. The Interdisciplinary Economic Sciences and the IDW • The interdisciplinary economics community and the Intellectual Dark Web are now in position to become the master discipline because of: • (a) the persistence in pro scientific reasoning by the members of the IDW, and… • (b) the wide range of interdisciplinary expertise of the movement has the ability to peer review articles and large scale interdisciplinary works that the current mainstream post modernist academicians in the soft philosophical and social sciences clearly lack the ability and will to develop.
17. First Slide Set Group • This slide set series is presented in three major slide set groups as planned so far. • Slide Set Group One is comprised of approximately seven slide sets and explains two primary issues. • The first primary issue is to explain… • the research design and lateral integration of evolutionary, psychological, political, economic, demographic and geopolitical Forms models • that extends the hardwired domain specific strong instinctual drive Integrated Causal Model (ICM) of Barkow, Tooby and Cosmides 1992 • throughout the micro and macro Philosophical and Social Sciences. First Slide Set Group
18. The second primary issue of the First Slide Set Group • The second primary issue, • is the need to develop an alternative interdisciplinary forum • to bypass the Western University system that focuses exclusively on advancing the tabla rasa domain general infinitely malleable premise • in the soft philosophical and social sciences in combination with the Standard Social Scientific Model (SSSM) to promote the abstract principles of ‘equality’, ‘equity’ of outcome, and social activism, • following the thought lineage of Hegel, Marx, Engels, Gramsci and Dewey, Derrida and Foucault that there is no reality, • only a dominant ideology serving the ruling class.
19. Spotting the up-and-comers and getting rid of them • The problem with this is that • clearly the bureaucratic totalitarianism of Marxism produced the most destructive social, political and economic dynamics when applied to human nature, • where two clear distinctions can be made: • (a) the overwhelming tendency of bureaucrats is to spot the up-and- comers and get rid of them, • (b) the overwhelming tendency in competitive free market system is to spot the up-and-comers and bet on them. • It is this facet of human nature and ideological theory • which deserves extensive investigation, • that the Marxist post modernist wish to avoid at all costs!
20. The effects of post modernism • The antiscientific post modernist movement in philosophy is diametrically opposed to • the notion of the Ancient Greeks who focused on understanding the relationship of the laws of man (nomos) and the laws of nature (physis) • in regards to the understanding of the effect of human made ‘belief systems’ on ‘human nature,’ • where the fusion of the two are understood as ‘culture’, • which results in a particular form of economic and political organization to bring about psychical and somatic fulfillment for the individual and the group, • as human being compete for resources and mates, and create a social hierarchy that is either natural and based on competency (i.e. the Proper Forms of Government), • or un-natural and based on coercive power (i.e. the Perverted Forms of Government).
21. Belief systems, human nature and culture • It is this relationship of belief systems and human nature as it relates to culture that • (a) gave rise to the original government Form theories of Plato and Aristotle who are among the founding fathers of the Greek University system, and • (b) is placed into context of Tooby and Cosmides essay entitled “The Psychological Foundation of Culture” in The Adapted Mind to which this slide set group is responding to. • ( https://www.cep.ucsb.edu/papers/pfc92.pdf )
22. Modifying Freud’s three psychical element model to answer the question • At the bottom of this issue of the nomos-physis distinction • is whether the structuralist and mass conformity theories in post Marxian philosophy and sociology are accurate, • in contradistinction to the psychological integration and fulfillment theories of Freud, Fromm and Tillich. • The micro behavioral question can be placed in terms of whether • (a) the integrated psyche consists of the integration of life-force energies, instinctual drives and human cognition, • (b) or whether the integration is merely the release of instinctual drives as Marxian theory contends.
23. Life-force energy, instinctual drive and cognition model • This question is ultimately based in terms of modifying • Freud’s three psychical element Id, Ego and Superego model into • the three psychical element model of • life-force energy, • instinctual drives (i.e. the ICM of Tooby and Cosmides and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs), • and human deliberative cognition. • While the first two slide set group will • largely deal with the macro questions of trend projection analysis, • Slide Set Group Three will deal more extensively with the comparative psychological question • in relationship to the macro sociological, political and economic theories.
24. Second Issue of the First Slide Set Group • Continuing the second issue of the First Slide Set Group, • in this sense, the autarkic specialty field disciplines of the Western University system act in isolation to promote social action and social justice as advocated by Dewey (1921), • instead of attempting to discern large scale behavioral patterns that are depicted in existing behavioral frameworks, that this model integrates into a singular overarching system. • In this sense, the problem with post modernism is that it compares human made abstract principles against competing abstract principles, • instead of discerning the effect of human made abstract principles, i.e. ideologies and religions, on actual ‘human behavior’ and a resulting government Form.
25. Second Issue of the First Slide Set Group • Continuing the second issue of the First Slide Set Group, • In this context, the problem with both the critical theory of the Frankfurt School and the French Intellectual movement of post modernism is that: • (a) they are based on the two psychical element model of instinctual drives and cognition only, and • (b) they both make the colossal methodological mistake of comparing human made abstract principles against competing abstract principles, i.e. the concepts of equality of opportunity, outcome equity and social justice, • instead of discerning the effect of human made abstract principles (i.e. ideologies and religions) on actual ‘human behavior’, • and judging the results in terms of human constructive vs destructive behavioral dynamics in terms of • psychological, political and economic explanatory theories and scientific statistical measurement models.
26. First Slide Set Group • The original idea of the nomos-physis distinction is that • the belief systems that are most congruent and balanced with human nature are consistent with the proper Forms of government, • while the belief systems that are the most antagonistic and unbalanced with human nature are consistent with the Perverted Forms of government, • And whether these tensions can be balanced to form an ideal state as pondered by Plato in The Republic, • or the tensions of human nature and aggregate macro behavioral dynamics are in a continual state of tension and flux that no ideal state is ever achieved, just a continual change of behavioral Forms (e.g. Aristotle, Nietzsche and Spengler.)
27. The Enlightenment Theories are all taken out context of Darwin • The second primary issue continued… • In other words, all the Enlightenment theories that gave rise to the current ideological theories are all taken completely out of context of: • (a) the natural selection process of Darwin 1959 and 1871, • (b) and the two overarching trends of technology and population growth, which are measurable and predictable. • (c) The Post Modernist movement is not interested in corrected these methodological deficiencies, and in fact exacerbates these deficiencies by opposing the use of scientific methodologies to human behavior for reasons explained in slide set 4.0. • (d) In direct contrast, the behavioral economics and the interdisciplinary economics movements are actively trying to correct these deficiencies, but lack the frameworks from the soft philosophical and social sciences due to the fact that these fields won’t adopt scientific procedures.
28. The fundamental error of post modernism • The result of this fundamental error of post modernism of… • attempting to advance the notion of an ideal state or ideal society… • taken out of context of Darwinian evolutionary theory and modern sociobiological theory, • taken out of context of Freud and Fromm’s psychical integration vs disintegration theory is… • that the soft philosophical and social sciences produce a logically incoherent patchwork of writings that • retards the advancement of the philosophical and social sciences as a whole system as widely discussed by E. O. Wilson (1998), Tooby and Cosmides (1992), Pinker (2002) and Gintis (2006).
29. A seamless series of congruent stability- instability parameter theories • It is safe to say that the Frankfurt School ‘critical theory’ and French Intellectual post modernist movements… • that dominate the soft philosophical and social sciences in the Western University system at present, • are attempting to preserve the autarkic SSSM in the soft philosophical and social sciences at all costs to preserve Marxism as a viable form of political rhetoric, • with the notable exception of Erich Fromm who advanced Freud’s psychical integration vs disintegration theory in The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness, • never considered culture as a series of evolutionary stable strategies • related to a series of psychological, political, economic and demographic set of constructive vs destructive behavioral dynamics, • or a set of micro and macro set of stabilities vs instabilities • that would require an Integrated Causal Model (ICM) of biological and evolutionary theories, • as it relates to an Integrated Explanatory Model of micro and macro behavioral theories, • as they relate to the existence of First, Second, Third World countries and Fourth World failed state geopolitical Form models, • that can all be explained in terms of a singular system comprised a seamless series of theories.
30. The logical fix of starting a new group • The logical fix is just to circumvent the strictures of the overly bureaucratic Western University system… • and set up a forum where the Enlightenment theories of the past can be aligned in the foundational, political and economic order • and compared against the real world results of the Great Ideological Experiments of the 20th Century, • whereby the philosophical theories that were most predictive • can be paralleled with a series of empirical frameworks that cover the spectrum of • evolutionary theory as it relates to the environmental shaping disciplines of psychology, politics, sociology and economic theory.
31. Placing Vernon Smith’s findings back into the nomos-physis question • It is the contention that when the findings of the Great Ideological Experiments of the 20th Century • are placed back into the context of the nomos-physis distinction as suggested by Tarcov in the epilogue of the Strauss-Cropsey text, • the catch-22 problem of the soft philosophical and social sciences not contributing to the scientific project is overcome, • and the number of longstanding objectives listed on slide 9 are achieved in the process. • Slide 9 is copied in the next slide as a reminder as to where the criteria of this project emanated from over time, • while the thumbnails of the Hume-Smith-V.Smith/Malthus-Fogel model represents the major inspirational components of the ICM+IEM=FCGPFM system.
32. The list of longstanding objectives and methodological criteria in thumbnails • The system is designed to meet the criteria of: • Bacon (1620), • Descartes (1637), • Popper (1934), • Homans (in Faris 1964), • Harsanyi (1960, 1966 and 1969), • E. O. Wilson (1975 and 1998), • Strauss and Cropsey (1987), • Tooby and Cosmides (1992), • Pinker (2002), and • Gintis (2006 and 2009).

34. Section Two Synopsis of Slide Set Group Two The Development of a “core model” of the social sciences” This section explains the fundamental aspects of (a) performing a comparison of the foundational, political and economic philosophical theories of Hume-Smith vs Marx-Engels, whereby (b) an overarching (X,Y,Z) axis continuum set can be developed to provide the philosophical architecture for a unified theory of the philosophical and social sciences. Since the ICM of Tooby and Cosmides 1992 already existed prior to the development of this research design, the model being developed here uses the ICM as an instinctual drive platform and focuses on organizing the micro and macro environmental shaping theories that best explain the outcome of the Great Ideological Experiments of the 20th Century.
35. Second Slide Set Group, explaining the development of the IEM • The Second Slide Set Group will receive a synopsis here in the form of the core variable system originally presented at… • the Society for the Advancement of Behavioral Economics (SABE) at the Eastern Economics Association conference in Philadelphia in February of 2006, • while updated versions were presented at the Pennsylvania Economics Association at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania in May of 2006.
36. The Integrated Explanatory Model linking: psychology, politics and economics • Much longer versions of the paper were presented at the Institute for Interdisciplinary Social and Economic Sciences (IISES) at... • the American Hotel in Amsterdam in May of 2015, and at the Vienna School of technology in September 2017. • The longer versions will be updated and consolidated into a singular paper to be presented at future IISES conferences in late 2019 and early 2020. • It is this series of papers that focused on the Hume-Smith vs Marx-Engels comparison that produced the philosophical architecture of the explanatory theory and Cartesian model.
37. Explaining the Hume-Smith vs Marx-Engels comparison • As previously discussed, • the overarching research design in based on the comparison of the only two teams • that attempted to construct a logically coherent foundational, political and economic series of Philosophical theories, • since these opposing foundational, political and economic hypothesis represent the initial hypothesis formulation phase of the scientific method, and the actual Marxist Communist and Marxist Socialist experiments represented the testing and careful observation phases, it is the comparative political, economic and geopolitical analysis that represented the reformulation phase of the scientific method. • The model here therefore has the objective of consolidating the lessons learned from the aftermath of the Cold War into a singular model, to complete the reformulation phase of the scientific method.
38. A brief explanation of developing an overarching Cartesian Model • This section only briefly explains the (X,Y,Z) axis continuum sets • in relation to the communist experiment to illustrate the process of reducing the human studies to a singular Cartesian system. • In this context, • the Latin American and Indian style highly redistributive Marxist Socialist experiments under high population growth conditions, • provided the material to develop the Four Category Geopolitical Form Model as the outcome measure system • which is comprised of its own three axis continuum set to compliment the primary variable set presented in this section.
39. The fundamental aspects of the IEM • The model will be developed much further as the slide set continues, • and especially in the Second Slide Set Group which goes into a much more detailed behavioral analysis of the Capitalism vs Communist experiments • to extract the behavioral implications that are all but ignored outside of the discipline of narrow evolutionary psychology and the interdisciplinary economic sciences. • However, it is the sharp contrast of human behavior in the two opposing metaphysical systems that produces the most meaningful distinctions of human behavior and depth psychology. • This section is sufficient explanation of the subject matter of the author’s previous presentations for SABE and IISES.
40. The fundamental steps to a Cartesian model of the philosophical and social sciences • There are several fundamental steps of determining and completing • a core model of the social sciences that achieves the objectives of Harsanyi 1960, • in a Cartesian style model represented in a behavioral-political-economic- demographic sequence… • that lends itself to the development of a Cartesian (X, Y, Z) triple axis system in qualitative form at present • to become a baseline equation of the philosophical and social sciences in the future when placed in the context of the triple trifecta project, • that will be explained in the next subsection.
41. The ICM + IEM combination • This system is comprised of • Tooby and Cosmides Integrated Causal Model (ICM) as • a coherent instinctual drive model that organizes the fields of evolutionary theory, sociobiology and evolutionary psychology to serve as the system constant, • that naturally merges with a combination of • Freud’s three psychical element model, • Fromm’s advancement of Freud’s life and death instinct theory into a fully developed biophilous-necrophilous explanatory theory that, • is incorporative of Maddi’s (1972) organization of the psychological personality theories • which form the micro independent variable
42. The ICM + IEM combination • … • The ICM + Freud-Fromm-Maddi micro independent variable is compatible with Aristotle’s interval level ranked government Form categories • as the macro independent variable • that naturally merge with… • macro-economic per capita GNP based theories • depicting economic growth/population growth proportions • as the dependent variable… • to create a logically coherent micro-macro behavioral model… • based on a constructive vs destructive behavioral dynamic system… • designed to meet the criteria of Harsanyi “core model”, or “integrated explanatory theory” discussed in 1960, 1966 and 1969 articles. • In the schema being developed here, • the lateral integration of evolutionary, psychological, political, economic, demographic frameworks is being referred to as the Integrated Explanatory Model (IEM), • because it extends the ICM of Tooby and Cosmides, and relates directly to the Four Catergory Geopolitical Form Model as the outcome measure system.
43. The Four Category Geopolitical Form Model (FCGPFM)outcome measure system • The outcome measure system, i.e. the Four Category Geopolitical Form Model (FCGPFM), • Is based on the two primary overarching trends of technology and population growth over a very deep expanse of time, • and the two overarching secondary trends of the post industrial era consisting of • the steady migration of First World manufacturing jobs to the Developing World in the South, • and the mass migration of people from the very high population growth Developing World to the North, • where the world is seeking a wage labor rate equilibrium.
44. The importance of the two primary and secondary overarching trends • It is important to understand that the combination of the two primary and two secondary overarching trends is that • (a) it implies that there will be precipitously declining wage labor equilibrium point as • (b) the population of the Developing World has expanded in a geometric fashion after the introduction of European farming methods during the age of the explorers in the 14th and 15the centuries and has expanded to a logarithmic population growth function with further technological innovation during the post 1950s era of global development.
45. The overarching trends as a common element of predictability • The primary and secondary overarching trends will necessarily mean that income disparity will increase globally, • in the First and Second Developed World, • as well as in the Third and Fourth Developing Worlds, or ‘emerging markets.’ • The advantage of using the First, Second, Third and Fourth World category system is the means of assessing • political and economic income equality vs inequality measures, • in relationship to political and economic stability vs instability thresholds, • in relationship to the ecological concept of carrying capacity.
46. Understanding the FCGPFM • It should be understood that the FCGPFM system is based on… • transforming the subjective First, Second and Third World description into a Cartesian style model, • by relating a low to high human capital investment continuum as the Z-axis system that directly relates to • a low to high economic investment and growth continuum as the vertical Y-axis, as it relates to a • horizontal X-axis continuum depicting human population growth over a deep expanse of time. • Sidebar chart • Fogel http://www.divergingmarkets.com/2013/05/24/chart- of-the-day-world-population-growth-vs-history-of- technology
47. Modeling changing Forms • The objective is to… • relate micro psychological frameworks to macro cultural political and economic behavioral Form dynamics to • aggregate geopolitical Forms as they change in respect to the two primary and two secondary overarching trends, • as the means of adding predictive modeling standards to the soft philosophical and social sciences which have increasingly delusional expectations of the future • based on misleading definitions of ‘progress’ and class consciousness. • Yet the soft human studies have not developed any type of success-failure threshold, or resource constraint feasibility models, • that relate their ideal vision of the future with present First, Second, Third and Fourth World psychological, political and economic/demographic parameters.
48. Transferring the mathematical techniques from economics to the soft studies • The purpose of this method is to • organizes several subject areas of the behavioral sciences to effectively turn the ‘soft-studies’ subject areas of • ‘foundational’ philosophy (i.e. metaphysical and psychological assumptions), • political philosophy, political theory, political science and political sociology • into a micro-macro behavioral instrument measures • linked to general equilibrium theory determinants • required to raise these fields of study to the ratio level of modeling while, • providing the field of economics with a comprehensive behavioral-political- economic-demographic geopolitical Form model.
49. Defining the ultimate ‘behavioral economic’ theory • The method of attaining either a ‘behavioral’ ‘economic’ theory implies linking the three areas of psychology of • ‘life-force,’ ‘instinctual drives,’ and ‘deliberative cognition,’ to • (a) their mass behavioral aggregate decision processes of Politics, and • (b) the form of elite-mass relations they engender. • Linking the three aspects of human psychology to (a) and (b) accounts for • aggregate level economic and demographic outcomes, • which are measurable with the ICM+IEM=FCGPFM system.
50. Organizing the qualitative micro-to-macro frameworks first • Since the modern specialty fields in the social sciences are… • essentially derivatives of the three subject areas of foundational, political and economic philosophy, • it is the lateral integration of disciplines necessary to create a systematic behavioral-economic model, • that makes it feasible to develop the ICM+IEM=FCGPFM system, • that should evolve into a baseline equation of the human studies, • in steps 8 and 9 of the triple trifecta project over time, which will be explained in Part Three.
51. The fundamental steps in determining an X, Y and Z axis continuum set • The first step of reducing the human studies to a singular Cartesian- style model is… • the comparison of the major right versus left behavioral-political-economic- demographic models. • this process entails several steps. • The first step is… • the creation of a Hume-Smith behavioral-political-economic-demographic literature review matrix to compare with • a Marx-Engels behavioral-political-economic-demographic literature review matrix.
52. Turning the literature review matrix into an (X,Y,Z) axis continuum set • Secondly • the literature review matrices need to be reduced to a behavioral, political and economic set of X, Y and Z axis continuums. • Since the political and economic models are based on the theorists ‘conception of man,’ • it is the psychological system that integrates the model.
53. Turning the literature review matrix into an (X,Y,Z) axis continuum set • Therefore, • it is the behavioral aspect that assumes the z axis position, • set into play by the elite-vs-elite competitions • where the Y axis becomes the political process continuum that makes the initial macro connection, which in turn, • determines the X axis economic growth/population growth proportions. • It is this combination that determine the ‘growth versus equity,’ or ‘growth versus non-growth’ dichotomies to be measured in the outcome measure system.
54. The tight vs catastrophically loose wage labor market extremes • The Four Category Geopolitical Form Model • that is based on the two primary and two secondary overarching trends of the human studies is in turn… • based on the tight vs catastrophically loose wage labor market scenario continuum, • that form a stability vs instability and success-failure parameter continuums • that is consistent with the gradations of First, Second, Third countries and the increasing phenomenon of Fourth World failed states.
55. Turning the literature review matrix into an (X,Y,Z) axis continuum set • It is the X axis economic growth/population growth proportions in the micro-macro behavioral system, i.e. IEM that accounts for the philosophical architecture, • that determines the ‘growth versus equity,’ or ‘growth versus non-growth’ dichotomies • that relate to the two primary trends of technology and population growth in the outcome measure system comprised of the • First, Second, Third World countries and Fourth World failed states.
56. Adding rigor to the three areas of philosophy • It is this process whereby the subjective First, Second and Third world categories can be modified into an objective four category Cartesian system • whereby the predictive analysis techniques from the disciplines of economics, demographics and political risk analysis • can all be placed in terms of the tight vs catastrophically loose wage labor market conditions to form the stability-instability, equity-nonequity success-failure parameter models, • required to transform the three areas of Foundational, Political and Economic Philosophy into a scientific discipline. • It might have taken a long time to work out the details, • but the method of adding scientific rigor to the discipline of philosophy in the end, is not difficult. • It was the philosophical architecture of the IEM developed in the 2006 SABE paper, and the 2015 and 2017 IISES papers that began the process.
57. The Hume-Smith axis continuum set • The Hume-Smith model can be characterized in three dimensional form as: • The Z-axis represents the gradation of non empathy/sympathy versus an empathy/sympathy in society. • The Y-axis continuum represents the method of mass political organization and the level of mass antagonism-or cooperation engendered by the type of government form and the elite-mass relations tendencies. • The X-axis represents either the growth-equity dichotomy in the fundamental per-capita GNP ratio of C+I+G/n people.
58. The Marx-Engels axis continuum set • The Marx-Engels model can be characterized as: • The Z axis represents the level of destructive self-interest elicited by market driven competition versus the level of altruism elicited in a non-competitive non-market system. • The Y axis represents the level of antagonism versus cooperation engendered by the government form and the elite-mass relations tendencies. • The X axis represents a growth versus equity, and growth versus non-growth dichotomies. However, in a Marxist system, it derives from a C+G/n people format of the centrally controlled system with no private investment (I).
59. The behavioral analysis of the Capitalist vs Communist experiments • The behavioral theoretic aspect of the competing Hume-Smith versus the Marx-Engels models requires a brief explanation. • The Hume-Smith model assumes competition for resources and mates is natural. • Therefore it consists of a constructive competition • made possible by an increase of empathy and sympathy in society • versus a destructive form of competition of unabated self-interest by the ruling elites, • whereby the ruling elites thwart economic rivals • as the means of thwarting political rivals, • as the means of advancing the biological fitness level of their biological offspring and relatives, • which is an ongoing phenomenon that integrates economic, political, post Freudian psychological frameworks to narrow evolutionary psychology.
60. Enlightened self-interest • Under the conditions of this form of ‘enlightened’ self-interest, • which is characterized by ‘fairness,’ • mutually beneficial transactions, and positive-sum relationships, • which if combined with an increase in the division of labor and increased capitalization of society, • then the cumulative effect is a boost in GNP. • If the population growth is manageable, and a tight to moderately tight wage labor market can be maintained, • the increase in empathy and sympathy in society, reduces antagonism, • increases cooperation (modal sense) yielding a higher per capita GNP. • living standards and relative equity occur simultaneously under these basic success parameters.
61. Marx-Engels behavioral premise • In distinction, • the Marx-Engels theory argues that both property rights and matrimonial rites, • are unnatural ‘institutionalized’ methods of subjugation of lower status males and all females by • societal elites solely for economic and sexual exploitation. • Therefore, in Marx-Engels theory, • the removal of property rights and matrimonial rites • removes this unnatural human convention to restore society to a state of nature • where spouses and children were believed to be held in common in their hypothetical history explained in The Origin of the Family (1884), • that extended Rousseau’s Essay on the Origin of Inequality (1737) to its logical conclusion.
62. The false Marxian tabla rasa premise • Under this hypothesis, • the absence of the means of subjugation would restore the natural human tendency toward mate selection freedom and altruism, • improving elite-mass relations, boosting human cooperation and increasing per capita GNP. • Government control over investment instead of the private sector was supposed to increase objectivity in promoting the public welfare, • and on that basis improves optimization, efficiency and production- distribution equilibrium.
63. Marxist-Leninism and the ultra sadistic bureaucracies • The outcome of the 20th century ideological experiments in practice… • indicated that the behavioral basis of the Marx-Engels mass organizational political and economic theories was grossly inaccurate. • The idea of an objective altruistic elite proved to be a ploy of rival elites who ruthlessly imprisoned and literally exterminated their rivals en mass as explained in Solzhenytsin’s The Gulag Archipeligo. • Marxist-Leninism targeted the rich, and therefore the bureaucratic elite ruthlessly extinguished the most productive citizens during the farm collectivization programs, • where the seed crops of the peasants in Russia and Ukraine were expropriated for the sole purpose of inducing a mass famine that wiped out tens of millions of ethnic Russians and Ukrainians, • to teach them a lesson to obey the state, or be sent to “the gulag archipelago” if they do not. • Marxism in practice is solely about the intellectuals in the soft philosophical and social sciences seizing control of the political system and ruling over the bourgeois class, and has little to do with creating the workers paradise.
64. Marxism and the replication of the ultra sadistic bureaucracies • To be sure, • this same process occurred in every single Marxist Communist experiment in Ukraine in the 1930s, • China under Mao in the 1950s and 60s, • Vietnam and Cambodia on the 1970s, • where the Khmer Rouge were all educated in Marxist Ideologies at the Sorbonne and Science Po Paris during the 1960s, • which culminated in the ‘killing fields’ disaster in the mid to late 1970s.
65. Orwell’s psychological profile of Leftists • The motives of the psychological profile of people attracted to Marxism • is best described by Orwell’s Road to Wigan Pier, • where the “academic” and literary Marxists are primarily motivated by a hatred of the rich, • rather than a love for the poor working classes, whom they seem to kill with reckless abandon in every experiment. • This psychological facet has proven to be the recurring psychological profile in every Marxist experiment in the past, and present in Venezuela, and is not likely to change in the future. • In other words those who are attracted to the idea of ‘revolutionary Marxism’ based on the ‘class struggle’ premise • are attracted to the actual takeover of the politico-economic systems, • and the idea of building a system of bureaucratic political favoritism, • which has nothing to do with achieving an ideal state in practice.
66. The false behavioral premise • What this section is stressing… • is that inaccuracies in the Z axis behavioral continuum • based on the Tabla Rasa gender equality hypothesis, • produced the inaccuracies in the macro political, economic continuums as well.
67. Bureaucracies—‘spotting the up-and-comers and getting rid of them’ • The stifling of the ‘fair’ competition for resources and mates… • by the centrally controlled non-market system of political favortism… • Created a system of bureaucratic elites that continually ‘spotted-the-up-and- comers and got rid of them’ • to ‘make it easier for the people behind the counter than in front of the counter’ (Bhagwati 2002)… • confused the natural selection drive process and created a form or learned helplessness on a continent wide scale in Eastern Europe and across Asia… • that stifled the human motivational energy needed to maintain the positive business cycle over extended periods of time, • leading to low productivity and long lines for basic staples that were plentiful before.
68. Hatred of the rich, and the mass genocide of the most forward thinking and productive • The spotting and killing of the most productive of the last generation, • and the killing of the up-and-comers in the next generation by Marx’s ‘altruistic’ elites… • merely led to the condition where the ‘people pretended to work,’ and ‘the government pretended to pay them’. • The take-away is that • since people didn’t have to compete for resources in this system, • they didn’t produce them for others to consume either. • Marxism in practice was about killing the most forward thinking and productive in any given society. • Marxism has consistently yielding a sado-masochistic society as defined by Fromm’s productive vs sadomasochistic psychological dichotomy, • whereby Fromm’s dichotomy explains the elite-elite rivalry and the elite-mass relationships of a set of ruthless elites • ruling over a passive aggressive, or mass learned helplessness society, • which is consistent with Aristotle’s Perverted Forms of Government, not an ideal Form of government as predicted by Marx.
69. Isolating ‘force’ to be like physics models • In the Marxist Communist experiments, it is the motivational ‘energy’ that dropped, • that can be understood in terms of the biopholous-necrophilous, productive- sadomasochistic dual psychological dichotomy of Fromm, • and the conditioned response learned helplessness phenomenon of Seligman. • In this context, the goal of empirical models is to isolate unseen forces of nature in the context of humanmade beliefs, ideologies and laws. • The means of isolating the variable of ‘force’ • is to use a lateral integration of disciplines to isolate motivational, or ‘life-force’ energies. • the first objective is to improve the behavioral model at one end of the causal sequence, • to reduce causal error in political, economic and geopolitical theory at the other end.
70. Operationalizing Plato’s concept of Forms • The ultimate objective here is to operationalize Plato’s abstract concept of Forms, • in Aristotelian empirical frameworks, • which operationalizes Heidegger’s two primary variables of Being and [changes in Form] over Time, • to describe his concept of history as a continual Becoming • that is probably best described by the • finite behavioral Forms that recur an infinite number of times • in the government cyclical theories of Aristotle, Nietzsche, Spengler and Toynbee, • that gave rise to the rise and fall of great powers theories of Unwin, Glubb and Kennedy.
71. Marx’s ‘objectivity’ depended up a linear programming absurdity • In the operational political aspect of the Marx-Engels theory, • the distribution of resources by linear programming methods is impracticable in a “billion X billion” matrix. • Political distribution did not have the ‘objective’ efficiency that Marx intended, • and suffered the consequences of the Austrian socialist calculation debates, • confirming the hypothesis of Mises and Hayek instead, • as well as the constructivist vs ecological premise of Vernon Smith (2007). • The political process devolved into • a system of gross political favoritism, extensive coercion, • and black market corruption which operates on a free market basis.
72. The effect of Marx concentrating both political and economic power • The effect of inefficient and non-objective political distribution and government investment • was disastrous to technical innovation despite the development of numerous theoretical mathematicians by its educational system. • The shifting of resources towards new inventions was not practical • in this system that was designed to limit production of goods for high-end markets that serve elite clientele • which are the consumer preference ‘guinea pigs’ in a free market system. • Without an effective technical innovation-market preference feedback loop to guide investment, • the communist bloc countries fell far behind the West in technological gains and labor productivity growth.
73. Analyzing the effect of ‘ideologies’ on ‘the pursuit of resources and mates’ • The analysis of the communist system indicates that • people still competed for resources and mates exhibiting biologically determined male and female forms of ‘competition and jealousy’ • consistent with the findings of Symons (1979) and modern narrow evolutionary psychology. • More importantly, • this is the complete opposite of the Marx-Engels behavioral predictions explicitly stated in The Origin of the Family. • When given a choice the political elites chose a free market for themselves to compete for resources and mates, • while depriving their natural selection competitors, i.e. the masses, the means of competing fairly with them.
74. Confirmation of the Hume-Smith model • The communist experiment suggests that • the behavioral optimization of mass organizational theories runs more along the lines of the Hume-Smith model. • The communist system distorted the natural selection drive process on the behavioral and political side of the equation, and the per capita GNP dropped on the outcome measure side of the equation. • In addition, the analysis determined here is transferable to tyrannical and despotic political systems as well, • where the external validities of this research design and method of analysis provides the methodology to complete the triple trifecta project, • which is geared toward mathematizing this system to supplying the quants in the game theory community • with the qualitative explanatory theory and interval level frameworks • related to existing statistical models and link analysis data collection software • required to create a baseline equation of the philosophical and social sciences over time.
75. Advancing Vernon Smith’s constructivist vs ecological dichotomy • These initial steps and long-term research design goals are meant to… • illuminate the main metaphysical-psychological assumptions of the ideological non-centrally controlled free-market systems… • in contradistinction to the centrally controlled non-market (or heavily regulated) classical economic systems founded upon the “labor theory of value”. • This method and lateral integration of micro and macro behavioral frameworks affirms and advances… • Vernon Smith’s constructivist and ecological dichotomy in interdisciplinary economic theory with a Hume-Smith based model.
76. Comparing predictions with the actual outcomes • The ‘three continuum’ method of analysis makes it possible to • examine the primary societal ‘problem’ that the Marx-Engels theories were attempting to correct, • with the actual consequences, • where the three step scientific method of Bacon (1620) and Descartes (1637) • can be used to move society past the lower rungs of Kohlberg’s theory of moral develop where the intentions and expectations are divorced from the actual consequences, • to achieve the higher rungs of Kohlberg’s hierarchy where the intentions, expectations and consequences are understood in terms of • scientific explanatory theories and Cartesian systems corroborated with Bayesian statistical methods. • Applying the scientific method to the three areas of philosophy • integrates several areas of psychological theory to • macro political and economic theory as well.
77. What Marx’s theory did to the natural selection process • Marx and Engels were attempting to • reduce class distinctions in the production-consumption, and production- distribution processes, • but in actuality they killed the motivational energies underlying the long-term positive business cycle as discussed by Kondratief (1940) • The capitalist system is based upon competitors ‘instinctually’ trying to leap-frog their economic competitors in two main ways, • (a) product improvement and exclusivity at the high-end of the market, and • (b) reduction in unit price to increase market share at the middle and low ends of the market.
78. Killing the consumer preference feedback loop • Marx was trying to limit the high price of luxury items purchased by the rich, • and as a result, the initial target market for innovative products was stifled, • consumer preference towards new products was never decided, and investment was never directed to the wishes of an initial test market of real humans, • where massive investment towards large scale production to achieve economies of scale and markets of scale to lower unit costs • could be decided that would actually meet the wishes of the mass consumer that Marxism was supposed to meet in theory, • but capitalism meets in practice.
79. Totalitarian Socialisms • The communist political system was a debacle wherever it was instituted, • where the Communist experiments routinely imprisoned, tortured and killed tens of millions of Russians and Ukrainians, • prior to the advent of National Socialism which arose to counter it, • and obviously exacerbated the problems, but the advent of Marxist-Leninism and Marxist-Stalinism proved to be an horrific specter. • This system is based on the totalitarian vs libertarian continuum, • where the outcome of the 20th Century Great Ideological Experiments • clearly favors the libertarian perspective to explain the proper and perverted Forms of Government, • and a economic growth/population growth, • or Hume-Smith/Malthus model to explain tight and catastrophically loose wage labor markets • that explain the full range of geopolitical Forms.
80. Human ‘ideals’ vs the ‘natural selection drives’ • What is important to note is that • the misunderstandings in the behavioral aspect of the theory to achieve a ‘human ideal’ • was at variance with the natural selection drives shaped by nature itself over deep time. • Human psychical shaping has to be consistent with inherent psychical shaping to create positive growth political and economic cycles. • Mass organizational theories are only as good as their behavioral bases.
81. Placing foundational, political and economic philosophy into a Cartesian system • Moving towards a conclusion for this section, • the three axis continuums of the Hume-Smith behavioral-political-economic framework forms the starting point of • arriving at a three dimensional continuum set required to eliminate its opposite and • reduce the entire philosophical and social sciences to a singular Cartesian- style system.
82. The Hume-Smith axis continuum set • The Hume-Smith model consisting of the three dimensional Form of the following. • The Z-axis represents the gradation of non empathy/sympathy versus an empathy/sympathy in society. • The Y-axis continuum represents the method of mass political organization and the level of mass antagonism-or cooperation engendered by the type of government form and the elite-mass relations tendencies. • The X-axis represents either the growth-equity dichotomy in the fundamental per- capita GNP ratio of C+I+G/n people. • This three continuum system forms the philosophical architecture that • guides the selection of the frameworks from evolutionary, psychological, political, economic/demographic and geopolitical frameworks, • to be explained later in the slide set.
83. Placing foundational, political and economic philosophy into a Cartesian system • The purpose of this synopsis is to explain • how the advances of the 20th century behavioral and economic sciences are applied to the Hume-Smith three dimensional ‘first approximation,’ • then one discovers that the ecological vs constructivist dichotomy of Vernon Smith is the overarching casual system of the social sciences. • These explanatory theories naturally merge with Aristotle’s Proper and Perverted Forms of Government which will be explained as the First Slide Set Group progresses, which • confirms and operationalizes Kant’s autonomy-heteronomy distinction • as the common element of competing object-relations and personality theories in Maddi’s Personality Theories: a comparative analysis (1971), • that operationalizes the nomos-physis distinction after a 2500 year old quest.
84. Selecting the key empirical frameworks • This leads to the idea that • the Z axis can be updated to a ‘biophilous productive character orientation’- ‘necrophilous sadomasochistic character orientation’ dichotomy of Fromm to ‘value’ human motivational energies on the Z axis continuum. • This forms the basis of reorganizing psychological frameworks to begin the process of creating an instinctual drive stimulation and cognition optimization (mass education) model (modal sense) • that links to the common Y axis of Aristotle’s Proper and Perverted, constructive vs destructive behavioral dichotomy • that varies directly to the virtuous vs vicious cycles of Smith/Malthus on the X-axis.
85. Dual Motive System • This system can be updated with • neoclassical economic models based on the underlying concept of ‘marginal utility’ • which captures the behavioral element of people competing for economic gain and social status, • as they compete for resources and mates, • in the process of pursuing self survival and survival of the species consistent with Darwinian evolutionary theory, • To achieve an interdisciplinary system based on dual motives.
86. Harsanyi and the need for a “dual motive” theory • The combination of the triple set of twin motivations meets the dual motive criteria of Harsanyi 1966 • where he argued that the discipline of economics should move past the single motive theories of ‘self-interest’ based on the concept of ‘expected utility’ • and the ‘rational actor premise’ of von Neumann-Morgenstern’s Theory of Games and Economic Behavior (1944) • and develop the two primary force models used in physics, • for reasons that will become clear as this model is developed, applied to various issues, and extended.
87. Using Harsanyi’s criteria to meet the objectives of Gintis • The new updated three dimensional continuum set is termed • a Kant-Pareto model because the entire human studies can be depicted in a system of psychological-political-economic-demographic series of equilibriums and optimums • that is consistent with the end goals of achieving improved living standards and relative equity simultaneously. • Since rising living standards and equity are the shared topics of each of the macro philosophical and social sciences, • this is intended to become the core model of the human studies disciplines • that can be expanded into mathematical depiction with the optimal- nonoptimal outcomes of game theory following Harsanyi’s criteria • that also achieve all of Gintis’ 2006 and 2009 objectives.
88. The ICM+IEM=FCGPFM system • In conclusion to Part Two, there is sufficient reasons based on this brief explanation of the core aspects of • the lateral integration of psychological, political and economic/demographic frameworks of this model, • termed an Integrated Explanatory Model (IEM) in reference to Harsanyi, • that directly relates to the Four Category Geopolitical Form Model, • effectively extends the ICM of Tooby and Cosmides throughout all of the philosophical and social sciences. • The new system is can be expressed as the ICM+IEM=FCGPFM system to explain the void where the social sciences should be to answer E. O. Wilson 1998.
89. Realizing the vision of Bacon and Descartes • All the barriers of replacing • the three levels of foundational, political, and economic philosophies of the classical economic philosophers of the Enlightenment Era… • with a series of confirmed empirical frameworks depicted in basic Cartesian- style representation has been demonstrated to be possible • as this synopsis pertains to this introductory slide set. • In terms of Slide Set Group Two, • this synopsis provides the reader with an idea of how the behavioral aspect of • the Capitalist vs Communist experiment has not been analyzed by the soft philosophical and social sciences • that avoid performing autopsies on failed Marxist experiments at all costs, • as their aspirations are to take control of the bourgeois system.
90. Section Three Explaining the Triple Trifecta Project This section explains the nine steps of ‘the triple trifecta project’. The first three steps of the first trifecta is the systematization of (1) foundational philosophy with post Darwinian and post Freudian theories, (2) the coordination of political philosophy and political science measures of modernization theory, and (3) the coordination of economic philosophy of the past with post Walsusian and Pareto-style mathematical systems. The Second trifecta is to apply the behavioral frameworks linked in series from the first trifecta, to (4) the Capitalism vs Communist experiments, (5) the Capitalism vs Socialism experiments, and (6) to the rise and fall of civilization an great powers theories. The third trifecta is to move the frameworks selected in the First Trifecta to the (7) nominal, ordinal and interval level qualitative frameworks, to the ratio level of statistical modeling in step 8, and to data collection systems in step 9. These nine steps represent the long-term aspirations of the Unified Theory of the Philosophical and Social Sciences, and therefore the need to develop a forum to develop the project The none steps of the triple trifecta provide a clear cut path to bring about the Fifth Era of Philosophy.
91. The lessons learned from the 20th Century Ideological-Behavioral experiments • The objective of the triple trifecta project is to: • (a) further develop the micro-macro behavioral system in the First Slide Set Group, and • (b) apply it to the Capitalism vs Communist experiments in Slide Set Group Two, which is the fourth step of the triple trifecta project, that provides the philosophical architecture derived from the isolation of life force energies in the Capitalism vs Communism ideological experiments. • (c) Step 5 applies the ICM+IEM=FCGPFM system to the Indian and Latin American Socialist experiments under high population growth conditions. • (d) Steps 4 and 5 develop the series of micro and macro behavioral frameworks to apply the system to ‘the rise and fall of civilization’ theories, where the behavioral system represents the finite amount of behavioral Forms that recur an infinite number of times in history in step 6 of the triple trifecta project.
92. Applying the ICM+IEM=FCGPFM to each major area of Political Philosophy and Theory • The objective is to • apply the method of analysis to the three major areas of post Enlightenment post Industrial theory, • and demonstrate the every major area of philosophy can be expressed in Cartesian modeling terms. • The purpose of this is to • demonstrate that there is no reason for the soft philosophical and social sciences to remain as “soft” social studies, • other than the current generation of academicians wish to protect Marxism at all costs as the means of maintaining their influence in a functioning bourgeois world for the purpose of transforming it into a dysfunctional system.
93. First Issue: the outside-in vs inside-out approach • The first issue that Slide Set Group Three explains in much greater detail of how • the Hume-Smith vs Marx-Engels research design discussed in Slide Set Group One, • represents Harsanyi’s outside-in approach of establishing the external parameters of the measurement contin
