123-124, criticizes Amheim's views: "As the laws of symmetry are nothing other than the structural laws of the construction of matter and therefore also of organisms, it can naturally be debated whether or not there exists an isomorphy between the laws of symmetry of one's own formation (in works of art, for example) and the laws of symmetry of the nervous substratum.
