Reviews of the first edition? ?Ian Gordon's book is a lively and thoughtful introduction to the main theoretical issues that have divided students of perception over the past few hundred years. As such, it will make a useful companion to more experimentally orientated texts in introductory and second-level courses in perception ? The strength of this work is in its careful historical analysis, and in its very clear and accessible style.' The Times Higher Education Supplement ?I highly recommend this book, which provides the advanced undergraduate psychology student with a good overview of the major theories of visual perception. ? In general, Gordon has done an outstanding job in conveying the essence and scope of each theory of perception that he presents.' Contemporary Psychology The book has a wealth of illustrations, and the most abstract and technical developments in visual research are presented in an accessible form, resulting in a valuable text for undergraduates and graduate students in psychology, philosophy and computer science.
