Psychological theory that started in 1968 at the time when the debate on "person-situation" was triggered through a monograph publication by Walter Mischel. It is an approach to art behavior that states that there are no general traits.

Cattel and Hans Esyenck. Major movement linked to situationism is "Situationist International" founded by Asger Jorn.
