The Introduction of the Einstein Model of a Solid to Analytical Psychology.

Authors: Theodoros Aliferis

If we intend to bridge physics and psychology one of the shorter paths is through Thermodynamics and Analytical Psychology (AP). That is because in AP both the First and the Second Law of Thermodynamics, are well defined (Principle of Equivalence, Principle of Entropy). The Einstein model of a Solid (ES) is a thermodynamic model with applications also in quantum statistics and solid state physics. I intend to show that the ES is a suitable model to bridge thermodynamics and theoretical AP. The approach I follow is an attempt to match the abstract entities of the ES to those of the AP. I also attempt to prove that the conditions on which the ES is based, agree with AP. Finally I attempt to solve a crucial paradox met in theoretical AP, but not physically explained yet. The results of this paper could be summarized as follows: I prove that a match between the abstract entities of AP and those of the ES can be achieved. I prove that the conditions, on which the ES is based, are met in AP. Finally I use the ES to explain and solve the paradox. The Conclusions/Significance of this research is that I introduce algebraic expressions in AP. Additionally I help both the practitioner and the theorist of AP and Psychology in general, as any improved theory would. Keywords: Einstein Solid, Analytical Psychology, Thermodynamics, Entropy, Psychology.
