Looking at Looking
An Introduction to the Intelligence of Vision

Edited by:

October 2000 | 144 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
`The key strengths of this book are the expertise of the contributors, the engaging format, and the interesting examples they us' - Greg Burton, Seaton Hall University

This volume brings together a selection of the most influential current thinkers in the area of visual perception. We are often confused by our visual systems, for example size distortions, but there is an underlying `intelligence' to our visual system, even in the face of what would seem to be short-circuits within our sensory processing. This book explores varying views of this `intelligence`.
