  • Functional dettachment and Aristotelian causality: A theoretical

    • Abstract: Se realiza un análisis teórico del concepto de desligamiento funcional en teoría de la conducta (Ribes & López, 1985). Se revisan algunos antecedentes teóricos del concepto y se examinan las propiedades lógicas del concepto en relación con las distintas causas aristotélicas. Se señala la importancia de la causa eficiente en su relación con la actualización de la potencia, como organización funcional de un organismo. Se hace énfasis en ubicar, desde la perspectiva de una teoría de campo, en dónde reside la potencia, qué es lo que se actualiza y en qué consiste cada contingencia de función actualizada. Se propone también cómo medir las diversas formas de causalidad aristotélica en el modelo de campo (mediación, arquitectura de las relaciones de contingencia, desligamiento funcional y ajuste funcional) como variables molares.The concept of functional detachment in behavior theory (Ribes & López, 1985) is analyzed. Some theoretical antecedents of this concept are revisited as well as its logical properties related to Aristotelian causes. The importance of efficient cause is pointed out in relation to the actualization of potency, as functional organization of an organism. From the perspective of a field theory, an attempt is made to identify the potency, what is being actualized, and the characteristics of every actualized function contingency. Measurement of the diverse forms of Aristotelian causality (mediation, contingency relations architecture, functional detachment and functional adjustment) as molar variables in a field model is proposed.
  • For a radically humane behaviorism

    • Abstract: Se empieza por destacar la Teoría de la Conducta de Ribes y colegas como el sistema psicológico probablemente con mayor grado de cientificidad. Se destaca también la figura del propio Emilio Ribes como un psicólogo total. El artículo a comentar es sitúa en este contexto. Se refiere al desligamiento funcional como la propiedad que define al comportamiento psicológico respecto del comportamiento biológico, implicando en su consideración la cuádruple causalidad aristotélica, como metafísica de la conducta, más allá de las concepciones al uso. Sobre una base aristotélica y tomando importantes conceptos de la Teoría de la Conducta se propone un conductismo radicalmente humano, más centrado en la noción de persona que en la noción genérica de organismo.It begins by highlighting the Theory of Behavior by Ribes and colleagues, as probably the psychological system with greater degree of scientific nature. The figure of Emilio Ribes himself is also highlighted as a total psychologist. The target article is situated in this context. It refers to the functional detachment as the property that defines the psychological behavior regarding biological behavior, involving in its analysis the quadruple Aristotelian causality, as metaphysics of behavior, beyond the current conceptions. On Aristotelian basis and taking important concepts of Theory of Behavior, a radically human behaviorism is proposed, more focused on the notion of person that on the generic notion of organism.
  • In search of a radically psychological behavior theory: Response
           to Marino Pérez

    • Abstract: Una teoría de la conducta humana requiere ser parte de una teoría de la conducta que incluya la conducta de organismos en otros phyla, no solamente los animales. El comportamiento humano es una síntesis de tres procesos emergentes en la historia de la vida en el planeta: a) la emergencia del tejido nervioso, b) la emergencia del lenguaje y c) simultáneamente el surgimiento de las primeras formas de organización social y la división del trabajo. El lenguaje, en el caso de los seres humanos, ha permitido el surgimiento de las funciones substitutivas de contingencias, como emergentes psicológicos exclusivos. Se examina el papel crucial del lenguaje y la atribución de un nombre en el proceso de identidad social como individuo y como persona.A theory of human behavior must be part of a theory including the behavior of organisms in phyla different even form animals. Human behavior is a synthesis of three emergent processes in the history of life in our planet: a) the emergence of neural tissue, b) the emergence of language, and c) the simultaneous emergence of social organization and labor division. Language, in human beings, allowed for the contingency-substitution functions, as an exclusive psychological emergence. It is examined the crucial role of language and name-attribution in the process of social identity as individual and person.

    • Abstract: Se comenta el artículo objetivo de Ribes desarrollando la tesis de que el desligamiento funcional no puede ser la causa eficiente aristotélica. Los argumentos que sostienen la tesis son dos: a) que sea así supone confundir lo que se explica y lo explicado y b) una exégesis de la causalidad en Aristóteles y en particular la causa eficiente, exige que ésta cumpla ciertas características que no satisface el desligamiento funcional, entre las que se encuentra ser un factor responsable de la actualización, consistir en el contacto entre entidades ubicables y distintas, y que el moviente aporte una forma al movido en donde se actualiza. Se concluye con una contrapropuesta que ubica a la mediación como causa eficiente, entendiendo aquélla como articulación de una arquitectura de contingencias de ocurrencia. Así mismo, se alienta el desarrollo de la lógica explicativa de Teoría de la Conducta como alternativa en psicología experimentalRibes' target article is commented by developing the thesis that the functional detachment cannot be the Aristotelian efficient cause. The arguments supporting the thesis are twofold: a) to be the efficient cause involves confusing between what explains and what is explained and b) an exegesis of Aristotle causality and in particular the efficient cause, requires that the latter has certain features that functional detachment doesn't satisfy, among which is to be a responsible factor for actualization, to consist in the contact between different and localizable entities, and that the mover provides a form to the moved where it actualizes. It is concluded with the counterproposal that the mediation is the efficient cause, understanding the former as articulation of an occurrence contingency architecture. Likewise, the development of the Behavior Theory explanatory logic as an alternative in experimental psychology is encouraged.
  • Hermeneutics or heuristics? Field theory and Aristotelian concepts:
           Response to Ricardo Pérez-Almonacid

    • Abstract: Se destaca la dificultad de una interpretación fidedigna de los textos aristotélicos debido a la carencia de los originales, de la diversidad de las traducciones y de las diferencias lingüísticas y culturales que nos separan en tiempo. Se subraya que los tratados acerca del alma no son propiamente psicológicos, sino biológicos. A pesar de ello, han influido en el modelo lógico interconductual. Se expone como los conceptos aristotélicos sobre la causalidad tienen un valor heurístico importante para el análisis de proceso en la teoría de la conductaIt is emphasized how difficult is a faithful interpretation of Aristotelian writings due to the loss of the original works, to the diversity of translations, and to linguistic and cultural differences in time. It is pointed out that the treatises on the soul are not strictly psychological, but rather related to biology. Even so, they have a great influence in the logics of the interbehavioral model. It is shown how Aristotelian concepts on causality have a relevant heuristic value in process analysis for behavior theory.

           "Functional detachment and Aristotelian causality: a theoretical analysis"
           by Emilio Ribes-Iñesta

    • Abstract: Se analiza el artículo de Emilio Ribes-Iñesta "El desligamiento funcional y la causalidad aristotélica: un análisis teórico". Se hace énfasis en cuatro aspectos de este artículo: (a) el concepto de desligamiento y sus antecedentes en la literatura psicológica; (b) el concepto de comportamiento psicológico como cambio e interacción y su explicación; (c) las causas aristotélicas y su identificación con la mediación (causa material) , la estructura relacional (causa formal), el desligamiento (causa eficiente) y el grado de ajuste (causa final); (d) la propuesta de desarrollar medidas molares de estas cuatro "causas". Se reconocen los continuos aportes de Ribes al desarrollo de la Teoría de la Conducta, pero se toma distancia con respecto de la comprensión que ofrece Ribes de las causas aristotélicas y su identificación con los factores mencionados previamente.Emilio Ribes-Iñesta´s paper titled "The functional detachment and Aristotelian causality: a theoretical analysis" is analyzed. This analysis is focused in four topics: (a) the concept of detachment and its antecedents in the psychological literature; (b) the concept of psychological behavior as change and interaction and its explanation; (c) Aristotelian causes and their identification with mediation (material cause) the relation structure (formal cause), the detachment (efficient cause) and the degree of adjustment (final cause); (d) the proposal for developing molar measures of these four "causes". Ribes´ continued contributions to the development of the Theory of Behavior are recognized, but the author´s interpretation of Aristotelian causes and his identification with the aforementioned fa

    • Abstract: Se aclara que en la psicología no se estudian entidades sino campos de relaciones contingentes entre entidades. Los principios o causas aristotélicas constituyen momentos de la actualización de estos campos. Cada momento consiste en un estado del campo de relaciones y el desligamiento funcional, como causa eficiente, se refiere a las transiciones de cambios continuos en los estados durante la actualización. Se examina un ejemplo experimental.Psychology does not study entities but fields of contingent relationships between entities. Aristotelian principles or causes describe different moments of the actualization of these fields. Each moment consist in a state of the field of relations, and functional detachment, as efficient cause, deals with the transitions of continuous changes of states during actualization. An experimental example is analyzed.
  • Functional detachment and the analysis of human behavior

    • Abstract: O artigo discute a proposição por Ribes (2015) do conceito de desligamento funcional como referência para a identificação da causa eficiente do comportamento, à luz da teoria aristotélica das causas dos fenômenos A elaboração de Ribes remete a articulações entre sistemas diversos de relações, cujas interações produzem contextos de condicionalidades para as relações (de tríplice contingência) tipicamente investigadas na ciência do comportamento. Desse modo, reafirma o caráter dinâmico e processual do fenômeno comportamental, oferecendo um quadro abrangente para o desenvolvimento da pesquisa na área. Conduz, ainda, a uma reflexão sobre dimensões da ciência comportamental que definem centralmente a sua filosofia e impactam de modos ainda não suficientemente explorados o seu desenvolvimento e contribuição à cultura moderna. Três dessas dimensões são aqui discutidas motivadas pela análise de Ribes: a distinção entre universo e ambiente, a noção de reatividade comportamental e o probabilismo implicado no selecionismo como modo causal.The paper discusses Ribes’s (2015) concept of functional disconnection as a reference to identify the efficient cause of behavior, under Aristotle’s theory on the causes of phenomena. Ribes’s reasoning addresses the links among diverse relational systems, whose interactions give rise to conditionality contexts for (triple contingency) relationships typically investigated by the science of behavior. It, thus, asserts the dynamical and processual features of behavioral phenomena, and provides a comprehensive frame for research development in this field. Additionaly, it raises concerns about dimensions that centrally define the philosophy of the science of behavior, and impacts its development and contribution to culture in ways not yet fully examined. I discuss here three of these dimensions, stimulated by Ribes’s analysis: the distinction between universe and environment, the notion of behavioral reactivity, and the probabilism implied in selectionism as a causal mode.
  • Operant theory is not a field theory: A response to Emmanuel
           Zagury Tourinho

    • Abstract: Se cuestiona la comparación de la teoría operante con la teoría de campo interconductual. Se examinan las características lógicas de una teoría de campo, los conceptos de teoría y medida molar, así como las características de la categoría de contingencia como noción central de la teoría de campo.It is questioned the comparison of operant theory with interbehabioral field theory. An analysis is made of the logical features of a field theory, of the concepts of molar theory and molar measures, as well as of the categorical characteristics of contingency a central notion of the field theory
