The Quatumization of Psychological Events

Main Article Content

William Stephenson


There is a growing interest in application of quantum theory to psychology. The opportunity is taken to report the basic postulates involved, from a Q-methodological standpoint. Q is a new use of statistical method, away from statistics for large numbers of cases, to representing, instead, states of feeling for a single case. There is now a subjective science, based on self reflection, and depending only upon everyday cultural communication. The fundamental postulates are outlined. Psychology had to develop its own modus operandi for these developments, leading to formal statements of the quantumization of psychological events in a series of papers, "William James, Niels Bohr, and Complementarity. "
