While the scientific study of vision is well-advanced, a universal theory of qualitative visual appearances (texture, shape, colour & so on) is still lacking. This interdisciplinary h&book presents the work of leading researchers around the world who have taken up the challenge of defining & formalizing the field of ‘experimental phenomenology'.
* Presents & discusses a new perspective in vision science, & formalizes a field of study that will become increasingly significant to researchers in visual science & beyond
* The contributors are outst&ing scholars in their fields with impeccable academic credentials, including Jan J. Koenderink, Irving Biederman, Donald Hoffmann, Steven Zucker & Nikos Logothetis
* Divided into five parts: Linking Psychophysics & Qualities; Qualities in Space, Time & Motion; Appearances; Measurement & Qualities; Science & Aesthetics of Appearances
* Each chapter will have the same structure consisting of: topic overview; historical roots; debate; new perspective; methods; results & recent developments
