Abstract: Feedback control design plays a fundamental role in
Feedback control design plays a fundamental role in modern engineering by yielding real-time
robustness to dynamical perturbations. For an optimality-based formulation of the feedback control
problem, the Dynamic Programming Principle allows the characterization of the associated value

Perceptual control theory
Perceptual control theory (PCT) is a model of behavior based on the principles of negative feedback, but differing in important respects from engineering control theory. Results of PCT experiments have demonstrated that an organism controls neither its own behavior, nor external environmental variables, but rather its own perceptions of those variables. Actions are not controlled, they are varied so as to cancel the effects that unpredictable environmental disturbances would otherwise have on controlled perceptions. According to the standard catch-phrase of the field, ""behavior is the control of perception"". PCT demonstrates circular causation in a negative feedback loop closed through the environment. This fundamentally contradicts the classical notion of linear causation of behavior by stimuli, in which environmental stimuli are thought to cause behavioral responses, mediated (according to Cognitive Psychology) by intervening cognitive processes.Numerous computer simulations of specific behavioral situations demonstrate its efficacy, with extremely high correlations to observational data (0.95 or better), such as are routinely expected in physics and chemistry. While the adoption of PCT in the scientific community has not been widespread, it has been applied not only in experimental psychology and neuroscience, but also in sociology, linguistics, and a number of other fields, and has led to a method of psychotherapy called the Method of Levels.PCT has roots in insights of Claude Bernard and 20th century control systems engineering and cybernetics. It was originated as such, and given its present form and experimental methodology, by William T. Powers.
