The system of notions of general psychology and the functional system of psychological regulation of behavior and activity

An attempt is made to construct a rational classification of the principal notions of general psychology on the foundation of the basic system-forming notion of the mind as reflecting reality and regulating behaviour and activity. The author points out a certain correlation between the new classification and the traditional empirical classification of basic psychological processes and individual personality traits, as well as the advantages of the former, which is more complete, more logical and functionally hierarchic. The author also discusses how the suggested system relates to P.K. Anokhin's theory of the functional system of organization of behavioral acts and its role in establishing uniform terminology for studies of success in different activities.
