B. Russell's "Behaviour Cycle"

[from Gary Cziko 960914.0315 GMT]

The following is an entry under "behaviour" in the Oxford English Dictionary.

    1921 B. Russell Anal. Mind iii. 65 - A `*behaviour-cycle' is a
    series of voluntary or reflex movements of an animal, tending to
    cause a certain result, and continuing until that result is caused,
    unless they are interrupted by death, accident, or some new
    behaviour-cycle.

Anyone familiar with this article or what journal "Anal. Mind" refers to.
Could be interesting to see if old Betrand understand perceptual control
better than Herb Simon.

Perhaps `The Analysis of Mind'. My library catalog gives this as a 1949
book, but maybe there were several editions.
