Title: Stephen Gaukroger, Sydney
Seeing as Touching: Extramission as a Model for Visual Cognition
Since the seventeenth century, the understanding of vision has been based
on an understanding of how optical instruments bring radiant light to a
focus, producing a sharp image. I argue that optical instruments are not a
suitable model for perceptual cognition, and that the formation of the
retinal image should be removed from the centre of the study of vision. The
extramission model, whereby the eyes actually reach out to objects, tells
us a lot more about perception than is commonly realised.
When: Wed 18 Mar 2015 13:00 - 14:30 Eastern Time - Melbourne, Sydney
Where: Muniment Room (S401), Main Quad, University of Sydney
