To base a view of life on scientific foundations imply fundamental problems. Some of these will be discussed in this article, where developments of a naturalistic or objectivistic psychology are sketched to show some of the background of behaviorism an psychoanalysis, which serve as examples of how fundamental problems arise if one tries to give one’s view of life a scientific base. As my point of departure I use the famous article «Deltakar og tilskodar» by the late Norwegian philosopher Hans Skjervheim.
