Abstract

The Nature and Function of Climate Perceptions Much climate research has been accomplished on the basis of some infrequently specified assumptions. These assumptions may be stated as follows: ( I ) humans attempt to apprehend order in their environment and t o create order through thought; (2) humans apprehend and/or attempt t o create order in their environment so they can effectively adapt their behavior t o the work environment. Broadly speaking, the first assumption is associated with the Gestalt school of psychology while the second assumption is representative of the kinds of questions associated with the school of Functionalism. ' T h e writing of this paper was supported in part by the Personnel and Training Research Programs, Psychological Sciences Division, Office of Naval Research under Contract N o . NO00 14-67-A-0239-0025. Contract Authority Identification Number, N R 151-350, Benjamin Schneider and H . Peter Dachler, Principal Investigators. T h e author has recieved valuable comments from H .
