Please mention the major contributions of Csikszentmihalyi’s and Rheinberg’s work on the concept of flow.

The final section outlines new directions for developing more valid and useful measurement methods that can help to advance the understanding of flow, its antecedents, and its consequences. Theory, Models, and Measurement Methods Engeser and Schiepe (see Chap. 1) argued that the definition of flow has changed very little since Csikszentmihalyi’s (1975/2000) original formulation in 1975, and that there is strong agreement among researchers on the definition itself. Yet, they pointed out that there is a certain level of disagreement among researchers as to how flow should be measured.
