I've reverted the page. It is unclear as to what exactly "psychobabbble" means, and why what was posted on the page counts as "psychobabbble", and why "psychobabble" should not be on a page about mental properties. Care to clarify?

Weasel wording[edit]

I'm going to add the "weasel" banner on this page. Here are a few reasons why.

  • It is claimed that mental properties are studied by sciences and parasciences. Then it is claimed that "philosophy of mind", which is neither science nor parascience, also studies mental properties.
  • The article states that the third approach is the "most universal research." I believe this shows a clear bias.
  • Undue emphasis is placed on systemics. Mental properties have been the subject of study by many other disciplines for a lot longer than systemics has been around.

I can provide more reasons - feel free to ask me - but I believe these to be sufficient. I do intend to help improve this article, so please do not see this as a "hit and run." D15724C710N (talkcontribs) 07:55, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

I think the wording which will address the concerns above and also the authors original intention is: "The third is the most recent area of research". Then I propose that the weasel-wording dispute tag can be removed. Good luck to all those intending to improve the article - surely just one REF can be found?!
