The aim of this paper is to generalize celebrated results due to Boyd and Wong [2] and Matkowski [9] and also to provide yet new solutions to the once open problem on the existence of a contractive mapping which possesses a fixed point but is not continuous at the fixed point. Besides continuous mappings our results also apply to discontinuous mappings which include threshold operations that are integral part of many a phenomena.
