Review of the anthology ”Looking Into Pictures” (MIT Press 2003)

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewScientific


This acclaimed volume is a collection of papers and texts by philosophers and psychologists from both sides of the Atlantic, published two years ago. It presents, in a comprehensive manner, an important move within current picture theory towards "reconsidering pictorial space". Of utmost importance here is the implied distinction between pictorial space (or different kinds of pictorial spaces) and ordinary perceptual space: a distinction that many psychologists have failed to make.
