Example text

Many of these experiments were made by Berlyne and his co-workers. Others were made by diverse American, European, and Soviet psychologists. Many of these experiments have an interest both for general psychologists and for educational psychologists, but it would lead us too far afield to review them in this paper. 6 It is sufficient to state that, in the present author's opinion, Berlyne's theory is based on firm empirical ground. SIt is also impossible to discuss here Berlyne's application of his theory to "Art" and "Humor" (1960, 1971).

"Diversive exploration," which has the function of providing stimulation in general (often motivated by "bordeom") and is named "recreation," "entertainment," etc.

Berlyne's Philosophy of the World Berlyne has no explicit formulations about his conception of the mind-brain problem. But from the more explicit part of his metalevel, we can infer that Berlyne presupposed a neutral-monistic theory about the psychophysical relationship between mind-or consciousness-and brain. There were some doubts left in the present author's mind, but after some discussion with Berlyne it became clear that he adopted the neutral-monistic theory (and not a materialistic theory which was the other possibility).
