By Jerome Bruner
Jerome Bruner argues that the cognitive revolution, with its present fixation on brain as "information processor;" has led psychology clear of the deeper target of realizing brain as a author of meanings. in basic terms by means of breaking out of the constraints imposed by means of a computational version of brain do we seize the exact interplay during which brain either constitutes and is constituted through culture.

This mission is still alive today, as a “new branch” of psychology, called positive psychology, has been stimulated and inspired by the work on ﬂow. Related to this mission, he asked himself what makes an activity enjoyable in its own right, instead of understanding the experience in relation to the means or drive or similar explanations. He therefore started to study activities where the enjoyment of the action seems to be highly important, such as rock climbing or playing chess. Please mention the major contributions of Csikszentmihalyi’s and Rheinberg’s work on the concept of ﬂow.
He had already studied a great variety of activities, relying on retrospective or summative measures. What could be more progressive than to study ﬂow while the person is actually doing the activity and to study a wide range of activities? In an advancement of Csikszentmihalyi’s (1975) diary method to study ﬂow patterns in everyday life, Csikszentmihalyi et al. (1977) developed and used the ESM, which provided an appropriate tool for such an enterprise. Using the ESM, subjects receive signals at random times during waking hours of a normal week.
The vast majority of studies use questionnaires to assess ﬂow. The measurement of ﬂow with questionnaires can be differentiated in (1) measuring all components of ﬂow experience or (2) capturing some components. Furthermore, subjects have to indicate (3) the experience of ﬂow in a global manner or (4) ﬂow is inferred according to the ﬂow model. Moneta (Chap. 2) will address the measurement and its implications for the conceptualization of ﬂow in detail (see also Chap. 3). The ﬁrst two approaches of questionnaires to measure ﬂow are dominant in the research conducted.
