Theories of Visual Perception
Explores modern thinking on visual perception, including discussion of seven major theoretical approaches such as the Gestalt Theory, Ecological Optics and Computational Theory of Vision. Shows the ways in which general theories of visual perception can differ and how these theories approach the same cluster of phenomena in dissimilar ways, explaining them by very different concepts. Key phenomena are described clearly and theoretical explanations are included as well as explicit procedural details. References are listed at the end of each chapter for further research. Extensively illustrated.
