This book intends to open a discussion on the analysis of ‘guiding principles’ or hidden presuppositions in argumentative chains in psychology. This means that in a sense it aims at realizing Peirce’s idea, although the current realization is in many ways different from what Peirce had possibly envisioned.

The key concepts of foundational analysis will be presented in the first and second chapters. The third chapter will concentrate on the validity of data, followed by a chapter on theoretical concepts, and the fifth chapter deals with the consistency and validity of theories.
