The development of linear perspective in the 15th century represented a radical transformation in the European's sense of the world, the body and the self. Robert Romanyshyn's latest book examines the claim that the development of linear perspective vision was and is indispensable to the emergence of our technological world. It does so by telling the story of how an artistic technique has become a cultural habit of mind.

About the Author:

Robert D. Romanyshyn, professor of psychology at the University of Dallas, also teaches in the Arts and Humanities program at the University of Texas at Dallas, and is practising clinical psychologist. Author of Psychological Life: From Science to Metaphor, he has lectured and taught at numerous universities in the USA, Europe, and Africa.

Review:

"There is a specificity and tightness . . . that is compelling . . . an excellent complement to Jung's historical reflections and alchemical studies."
-"Harvest
"You have, in my opinion, produced one of the wisest and most compellingly urgent books I have encountered in a long while. Thank you for this book."
-Alice Jardine, Department of Romance Language and Literature, Harvard University
"The cast of characters assembled in Romanyshyn's tale--from things such as the telescope, television, and the telephone, to ideas like the vanishing and the distance points, to figures such as Brunelleschi and Alberti, Galileo and Harvey, Mesmer and Freud--is as impressive as the story he tells is persuasive. The author asks us to take nothing on his word but deftly directs us to our own images on art and in life, in history and in the present day."
-"The Humanistic Psychologist, Autumn 1990
." . . a rare achievement."
-"Times Literary Supplement, July 1990
." . . any psychology that would be a psychology of culture must include an appraisal of technology as a psychological event. This is precisely what Romanyshyn has done by seeing technology as both symptom and dream in this remarkable work."
-"Temenos
