The senses considered as perceptual systems by James J Gibson( Book )

55 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Gibson does not treat of the different senses as mere producers of visual, auditory, tactual, or other sensations. Rather, he regards them as active seeking mechanisms for looking, listening, touching, and the like. This means that the emphasis is on explanations of how we are able to have the constant perceptions that we need for effective action and avoidance of physical harm in our everyday lives. The author clearly supports his view that the perception of reality is not something assembled or computed by the brain from an ever-varying kaleidoscope of sensations. He emphasizes the importance of regarding the different perceptual systems not only as active, but also interrelated

Reasons for realism : selected essays of James J. Gibson by James J Gibson( Book )

15 editions published between 1982 and 2019 in English and Japanese and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James J. Gibson's numerous theoretical and empirical contributions to the understanding of how people perceive were innovative, controversial, often radical, and always profound. Many of his ideas revolutionized the science of perception, and his influence continued to grow throughout the world. This book, originally published in 1982, is a collection of the most important of Gibson's essays on the psychology of perception. Drawing from the entire corpus of Gibson's papers, the editors have selected over thirty works dealing with such diverse topics as ecological optics, event perception, pictorial representation, and the conceptual foundations of psychology. The editors' goals in preparing the volume were twofold: first to provide easy access to Gibson's most outstanding papers and talks, including some that were previously unpublished; and second, to provide an intellectual biography of Gibson by including essays from the different periods of his career

The ecological approach to visual perception by James J Gibson( Book )

29 editions published between 1979 and 2015 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, first published in 1979,is about how we see: the environment around us (its surfaces, their layout, and their colors and textures); where we are in the environment; whether or not we are moving and, if we are, where we are going; what things are good for; how to do things (to thread a needle or drive an automobile); or why things look as they do. The basic assumption is that vision depends on the eye which is connected to the brain. The author suggests that natural vision depends on the eyes in the head on a body supported by the ground, the

The analysis of reading skill : a program of basic and applied research by Harry Levin( Book )

3 editions published between 1968 and 1978 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the contention that increased concern over the status of reading requires that the experimental testing of reading hypotheses be conducted with the most modern methods of behavioral science and be based on a theoretical analysis of the reading process, both psychological and linguistic, this final report from a group of investigators pursues various ideas with individual reports. Three are on aspects of visual and/or auditory relationships to reading, and five deal with specific investigations of graphic discrimination. A majority of the papers are grouped under "Studies of Oral Reading." Seven of them cover a broad scope of the relation of spelling to reading ability--three of these dealing with homographs; eye-voice span is considered in six--four of these relating eye-voice span to syntax. Three articles deal with beginning reading in terms of grammatical context, visual perception, and scribbling and drawing. The abstracts to five related theses written by research assistants working on the project are included. Each paper includes its own references. Most of them include abstracts and tables. (BT)

Durer's Devices: Beyond the Projective Model of Pictures is a collection of papers that discusses the nature of picture making and perception. One paper presents a perceptual theory of pictorial representation in which cultural and historical options in styles of depiction that appear to be different are actually closely related perceptually. Another paper discusses pictorial functions and perceptual structures including pictorial representation, perceptual theory, flat canvass, and the deep world. One paper suggests that perception can be more a matter of information ""make up"" than ""pick u
