173 TOWARD PRIMORDIAL REALITY AS THE GROUND OF PSYCHOLOGICAL PHENOMENA Charles Eric Levy INTRODUCTION In this paper we shall deal with three related topics. Firstly, we shall present some basic perspectives of realism and idealism and lead from them into a sketchy presentation of what Mer- leau-Ponty indicates as primordial reality. Secondly, we shall ex- amine in a particular current psychology research article, how realism and idealism are present in the formulation and the solution of the problem chosen to be investigated. Finally, we shall take the same phenomenon investigated by the research article, and we shall attempt to re-examine it in terms of our under- standing of primordial reality. Within our daily living we constantly find ourselves typifying or categorizing our world. We do so in terms of style and physical appearance. Thus when we call someone a friend, or his actions friendly, we are speaking of a style of relationship which we share with that person. When we call a chair curved and green we are describing how the chair physically appears. We can become more specific in our descriptions, and detail the interrelationships among those entities and behaviors which compose the world around us. Through
