Minaiev Yu.P., Datsenko I.P., Popovich M.A.

The Cayley graph for the group of classic intertype relation operators

Structure of the classic intertype relation operator group (by Augustinavichute) is analyzed in the article. The Cayley graphs for all proper subgroups are given. It is shown how to construct the planar Cayley graph with undirected edges for the whole intertype relation operator group. The used set of group generators contains three operators of symmetrical intertype relations.
Keywords: socionics, classic intertype relations, intertype relation operators, non-commutative operator group, subgroup, Cayley graph.

Intertype relationships

On the essence of information in the context of methodological levels

It is proposed to consider the concept of information with the help of the four-level system of the methodological tools: worldview, general scientific methodology, partial scientific methodology, particular methods. Then, at every level of the definition, the concept of “information” obtains its specificity. It is shown that socionic understanding of information most adequately corresponds to the transition from the worldview to the general scientific methodological level.
Keywords: socionics, philosophy, methodology, information.
