Ragnar Rommetveit college of Oslo allow me begin this creation to Professor O'Connell's severe essays on language use and psychology with a few reflections on psychologists and crabs. It so occurs that the 1st professor of psychology in Norway had the center identify Krabbe ("Crab") His complete identify was once Harald Krabbe Schjelderup. for that reason, the crab grew to become our image for the psychologist. for a few years a "crab ceremonial dinner" was once held each autumn in Oslo for you to have fun the cloth union of crabs and psychologists and reflect on (symbolically and metaphorically) their shared destiny. A comparability among the challenge of the crab and that of the fashionable psychologist may well certainly be illuminating, when we ensure assumptions approximately their specific epistemic missions and systematically discover the serious constraints on their heroic look for wisdom. The crab is ordained to resolve the mysteries of the sea, but doomed to move slowly sidewise at the is as a rule mollusks and backside. His seize, regrettably, cadavers of sea creatures, and he can't support envying the fish swimming freely above him. The psychologist's venture is to resolve the mysteries of His legal responsibility to hunt perception into crucial the human soul.
