The Divided Spectrum
"[T]here is no such thing as a 'natural' division of the spectrum. The color systems of man are not based upon psychological, physiological, or anatomical factors. Each culture has taken the spectral continuum and has divided it upon a basis which is quite arbitrary except for pragmatic considerations."
Chart and text from Verne F. Ray, "Human Color Perception and Behavioral Response" (1953)
