The content of the paper refers to the field of interdisciplinary scientific research, lying at the intersection of information theory, psychology and social sciences. The material of the paper is formed on the basis of previous author's publications and is a thematic report of the authors on the study of the problem of sense.
The problem of sense is relevant in many scientific fields. But, first of all, this problem is relevant in psychology and psychiatry. Sense, like nonsense of human speech or texts, are indicators of mental disorders. Objective: Theoretical justification of the probabilistic approach to the evaluation of the sense contained in a person's speech or text message.
Objective : Theoretical justification of the probabilistic approach to the evaluation of the sense contained in a person's speech or text message.
Methods: A theoretical analysis of the probabilistic and activity approaches to the problem of sense in psychology; the method of calculating the amount of information proposed by K. Shannon; the technique of comparative analysis of the source text with its probabilistic presentation, developed by the authors.
Results :The justification of the probabilistic nature of sense is given; a psychometric criterion for quantifying the sense is proposed; a scale of probabilistic estimation of sense that can be used in the diagnosis of mental disorders in psychiatry and psychology is proposed.
