The third sentence in the section currently titled "Mind and consciousness", which currently reads "He believed that if the basic components of the mind could be defined and categorized and why they interact in the ways that they do (why) was the basis of reasoning that Titchener used in trying to find structure to the mind," is incomprehensible. My best guess is that two or more sentences were accidentally spliced together. Unfortunately, I am not sure how to edit it to fix this, neither understanding the original author's intent nor having prior knowledge of Titchener's beliefs to work from.
