ARTH667 - PHIL & VISUAL PERCEPTION

The course starts with a discussion of theories of visual perception and their relation to philosophy. We survey the history of visual theories from Euclid to Marr and Rick, with stops to include Ibn al-Haytham, Descartes, Berkeley, Helmholtz, and Gibson. We then consider selected philosophical topics, such as the nature of object perception, or the representational relation between images and things imaged (eg., between pictures and what they represent).
