9780716750017: Perception (Scientific American Library Series)

Out of the ever-changing stimuli that is projected onto our retinas, how do we fashion coherent images of the world, perceiving constancy in the shape, shading, size and orientation of objects? This book provides a tour of the mysteries of visual perception, covering such topics as the intrigues of both correct and illusory perception, the cues that enable us to construct a three-dimensional world, the nature of our perception of works of art and our perception of motion.

From Library Journal:

Rock gives human perception a thorough analysis in this 1984 title. Although written as a psychology text, this book is also of great value to artists and photographers.
