The first edition of this book appeared in 1967 (in Russian). In that edition, the author introduced two completely new concepts: that of a reflexive system (a system that has an image of the self)... More > and that of reflexive control (conveying a basis for making the decision that is advantageous to the side conducting the reflexive control); both concepts have since become firmly established in modern theories of decision-making.

Mental phenomenology, according to the author, is a manifestation of existence of such ideal objects. Along this way the author deduces the main psychophysical laws and the Just Intonation set of musical intervals.< Less
