Description : Have you ever wondered how the images in your eyes become your perception of the world about you? Michael W. Levine, professor emeritus at the University of Illinois at Chicago, examines the how and what of vision in this book. From the images in your eyes, through the processing by your brain, to the creation of perceptions of the world, he explores why and how we see the world as we do. The author considers the phenomena of optical illusions, mistaken perceptions or interpretations, and impossible and ambiguous pictures, sharing his personal take on how the visual system works and what it does to enable us to recognize objects, scenes, and visual space. The most important aspect of vision that emerges in these pages is that when we see, our brains essentially create a visual world from the relatively sparse information that is presented by our eyes. Get a revealing glimpse into the workings of our visual systems and discover the beauty and wonder of the miracle of sight with Believing Is Seeing.

Description : That the disguised person--one whose exterior aspect is misleading--- was used in Shakespeare for purposes such as plot structure and for the appeal of deception and verbal irony has been widely recognized. That disguise serves also in ways even more vital to the play's import is the proposal of this present study. The device will be found to have a far wider relevance to the structure of the play than merely as a contrivance to produce a beginning and a conclusion. Disguise will be found to constitute an expression of Shakespeare's characteristic ways of looking at things---at a character or an incident or a concept---both as he shared in the Elizabethan view of nature and as he participated in the development of the more complex vision which puts him in company with Donne and other articulate voices of the seventeenth century. Disguise will appear as Shakespeare's way of expressing, not only in comedy but in more sober contexts, the more Inclusive perspectives observable in the thought and art of his time. Disguise emerges as a mode of oblique dramatic statement, oblique but productive of the economy that is paradoxically the effect of poetic artifice. At its economical best, disguise enlarges the statement of character and becomes a mode of meaning in a play. Specifically, it is one of the ways in which he conveys the proposition that truth may lie not in one of two apparently conspicuously attended to disguise in Shakespeare: Victor Oscar Freeburg in Disguise Plots in Elizabethan Drama (1915); P.V. Kreider in "The Mechanics of Disguise in Shakespeare's Plays" (1934); John W. Draper in "Mistaken Identities in Shakespeare's Comedies" (1934); and John V. Curry in Deception in Elizabethan Comedy (1955). We shall briefly examine the approaches of these earlier treatments both for the purpose of canvassing! the values of Shakespeare's disguise which will not be dwelt upon elsewhere in my study and also for the purpose of suggesting limitations in these viewpoints. This review of scholarship will be directed towards a more exacting definition of my own approach and objects of study.

The current book set is even more complete in its coverage than the two previous editions have been. With 37 chapters, 1800 illustrations, and 8,000 references, it covers psychophysics, coding, physiology, development of systems and functions, results of deprivation, accommodation, physiology of disparity, binocular fusion and rivalry, binocular correspondence and the horopter, linking binocular images, cyclopean perception, stereo acuity, uses of disparity, stereopsis and perceptual organization, the Pulfrich effect, stereoscopic techniques and applications, distinguishing depth from vergence, perspective, shading, and motion parallax, constancies in visual depth perception, cue integrations, motion in depth, pathology of visual depth perception, animal depth perception, feeling, reaching, and moving, auditory distance perception, electrolocation and the thermal senses, as well as comprehensive coverage of animal navigation that could be a book on its own. Ian Howard's books have become landmarks in the field of vision science, and this current project will definitely maintain the tradition for researchers in space perception, visual neuroscience, ophthalmology, optometry, visual development, animal vision, and computational vision"--

Description : Volume 3 addresses depth-perception mechanisms other than stereopsis. It starts by reviewing monocular cues to depth, including accommodation, vergence, perspective, interposition, shading, and motion parallax. Constancies, such as the ability to perceive the sizes and shapes of objects as they move are reviewed. The ways in which different depth cues interact are discussed. One chapter reviews information used to perceive motion in depth. Pathologies of depth perception, including stereoanomalies and albanism are reviewed. Visual depth-perception mechanisms through the animal kingdom are reviewed together with a discussion of the evolution of stereoscopic vision. The next chapter describes how visual depth perception guides movements of the hand and body. The next three chapters review non-visual mechanisms of depth perception, including auditory localization, echolocation in bats and marine mammals, the lateral-line system of fish, electrolocation, and heat-sensitive sense organs. The volume ends with a discussion of mechanisms used by animals to navigate.

Description : This collection of essays presents a systematic analysis of some of the foremost issues in the philosophy of religion. The focus is on the epistemology of religion, the most significant area of recent interest in the field. After developing a religious epistemology in the first half of the book, that epistemology is both further expanded, and explicitly applied to salient issues in the contemporary discussion. The central question throughout the essays is how our world-views affect our perception, especially our perception of God. The first essays set out a general epistemology of perception. The next two sets of essays build upon this in assessing the cognitive value of religious experience, and analyzing the proper epistemic foundations for belief in God. Then, in view of the role of faith developed in those essays, the final essays address the dual challenges to traditional theism of theological non-realism and of religious pluralism.

Description : The present volumeis an annotated biblography of the vedik- Laksana, the esitence of which could be determined on the basic of printed editions, catalogues of manuscripts, and citations in other texts. the incentive for compiling this bibliography grew out of an awareness that hardly any relaible information exists concerning manuscripts of veda-laksana texts, although they are of great use critical studies of vedic texts. The goal of this work is to provide a comprehensive handbook of source materials on Veda-Laksna by identifying and distinguishing the texts in various manuscripts and printed editions according to their contents and actual title.

Description : In Perceiving God, William P. Alston offers a clear and provocative account of the epistemology of religious experience. He argues that the "perception of God"—his term for direct experiential awareness of God—makes a major contribution to the grounds of religious belief. Surveying the variety of reported direct experiences of God among laypersons and famous mystics, Alston demonstrates that a person can be justified in holding certain beliefs about God on the basis of mystical experience. Through the perception that God is sustaining one in being, for example, one can justifiably believe that God is indeed sustaining one in being. Alston offers a detailed discussion of our grounds for taking sense perception and other sources of belief—including introspection, memory, and mystical experience—to be reliable and to confer justification. He then uses this epistemic framework to explain how our perceptual beliefs about God can be justified. Alston carefully addresses objections to his chief claims, including problems posed by non-Christian religious traditions. He also examines the way in which mystical perception fits into the larger picture of grounds for religious belief. Suggesting that religious experience, rather than being a purely subjective phenomenon, has real cognitive value, Perceiving God will spark intense debate and will be indispensable reading for those interested in philosophy of religion, epistemology, and philosophy of mind, as well as for theologians.

Description : “To hear silence is to find stillness in the midst of the restlessness that makes creative life possible and the inescapability of death acceptable.” So writes Mark C. Taylor in his latest book, a philosophy of silence for our nervous, chattering age. How do we find silence—and more importantly, how do we understand it—amid the incessant buzz of the networks that enmesh us? Have we forgotten how to listen to each other, to recognize the virtues of modesty and reticence, and to appreciate the resonance of silence? Are we less prepared than ever for the ultimate silence that awaits us all? Taylor wants us to pause long enough to hear what is not said and to attend to what remains unsayable. In his account, our way to hearing silence is, paradoxically, to see it. He explores the many variations of silence by considering the work of leading modern and postmodern visual artists, including Barnett Newman, Ad Reinhardt, James Turrell, and Anish Kapoor. Developing the insights of philosophers, theologians, writers, and composers, Taylor weaves a rich narrative modeled on the Stations of the Cross. His chapter titles suggest our positions toward silence: Without. Before. From. Beyond. Against. Within. Between. Toward. Around. With. In. Recasting Hegel’s phenomenology of spirit and Kierkegaard’s stages on life’s way, Taylor translates the traditional Via Dolorosa into a Nietzschean Via Jubilosa that affirms light in the midst of darkness. Seeing Silence is a thoughtful meditation that invites readers to linger long enough to see silence, and, in this way, perhaps to hear once again the wordless Word that once was named “God.”
