Folk Psychology

Folk psychology is seen as manifested in common sense, proverbs and metaphors as well as in false friends, homeopathy or other naive analogies and etymologies, etc. In fact, the theory of causation, that of cause and effect is also part of folk psychology, and does not constitute science.

It is a weltanschauung (plural weltanschauungs or weltanschauungen)

1. a person's or a group's conception, philosophy or view of the world; a worldview
