The contributions to this section can be divided into two clear groupings: (1) a primarily psychophysiological group including Selye, Mason, and Frankenhaeuser, and (2) an exclusively psychological group including Atkinson and Mowrer. I shall have the most to say about the former authors, mainly because they reflect and confront each other with some important issues and controversies, while the latter two do not interdigitate at all.
