Science/James: Basic positions:
1. Primacy of observation
2. Science theory as a part of empirical psychology (basic techniques: identification and classifying association)
3. Criticism of Nominalism: Inductive classification reveals the "real identity of phenomena".
4. Scientific activity is useful problem solving.
Science/James: The knowledge stocks of the individual disciplines are provisional and have to resort to other disciplines. James, however, sticks to the postulate of unit science!
Science/James: Science, common sense and individual consciousness have one thing in common: they should increase the human adaptability.
