A new general social model of human being’s inner life focusing on the relation between mind and body is launched. Constructing human being’s functional architecture, the perspective from the other human being is involved. From the point of view of the 1st person “I” and the 2nd person “You”, the social model pertains to the physical, mental and social process levels. From a growth-dynamic or evolutionary point of view, the physical reality is axiomatic to deduct a higher order mental and social process level. “Interaction” is the key concept modeling all levels of human functioning in the reference frame of two thinking tools, namely ‘finality’ and ‘causality’.
