Ayn Rand defined psycho-epistemology as “the study of man’s cognitive processes from the aspect of the interaction between the conscious mind and the automatic functions of the subconscious.”

In these lectures extending material presented in “Psycho-Epistemology I”, Dr. Binswanger introduces and defines a new sub-discipline: applied psycho-epistemology.

Topics include:

  • The goal of applied psycho-epistemology
  • Psycho-epistemology as one’s automatized “mental software”
  • Mental filing as link formation
  • Factors affecting information retrieval
  • Definition as the process that organizes your knowledge by essentials
  • How to concretize properly
