Biomedical Rationality: Ontology, Scientific Grounds and ReflexivityAuthor(s): Elena N Pesotskaya*, Vera I Inchina, Lyudmila A Belova, Yulya A Makarova, Anna A Usanova and Tatiana A Usanova
A novel and complex core concept of “biomedical reality” has been formulated in the context of metaphysical knowledge. In meaning, it is close to digitalisation, though differs methodologically. Scientific grounds suggest that it is a backbone in the characteristic of the human ontos, representing multidisciplinary understanding of values of the existing technology-related model of living. A phenomenon of reflexivity has been considered as an onto-gnoseological key element, an interpretative principle, and a condition for new-style rational thinking in the contemporary scientific paradigm. Causality of processes in the living matter and a basis for bio-rationality as a crossing reality point are modelled based on connective-tissue individuality. Evaluation and parametric analysis of the phenomenon through generalising new data of neuroscience demonstrates that there is a theoretical and methodological perspective of this idea within subject-matter- and attribute-based approaches. In the system of personality attributes, operational nature of the concept of reflexivity and its components, namely, vectoriality, efficiency, intensity, are incorporated as predictors in the path to the truth, and the medical truth, in particular. Involving the patient’s personality as a component of a 5-PSM model of medicine, being the most dynamic sector of science, implies that reflexivity is seen as a tool-significant resource in objectifying information. In terms of post-nonclassical science, focused on the paradigm of holistic nature of information-based and physical reality, reflexivity in the medical mind set ensures that doctors are concentrated on the essence of disease and the personality of a patient in diagnostics.
