Abstract

Paul’s use of the concept of metaschematism in the First and Second Letter to the Corinthians, and in the Letter to the Philippians can be examined as a significant example of religious transfer in the form of negotiation of schemata on the level of object language that tries to establish a meta-language through negotiation of schemata.
By metaschematizing, mental and behavioral dispositions become interfaces linking different systems together, though in an asymmetrical manner.
By taking into account the role of metaschematic processes in medicinal and philosophical contexts, the article intends to scrutinize the role of metaschematism in schematic interaction.
