Frame of reference/reference system/framework/psychology/Bateson: the concept of a reference frame is related to the concept of context.
a) Exclusive psychological frameworks: exclude certain topics (messages or meaningful actions).
b) Including psychological frameworks: this exclusion includes other issues. Psychology - in contrast to set theory - has to make this distinction in order to be able to direct attention either to the inner or outer area. (>Figure/Background, Figure/Ground).
Framework: however, the introduction of frameworks accelerates the emergence of paradoxes._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
