Empirical constraints for perceptual modeling
Fox, Charles R. (2003) Empirical constraints for perceptual modeling. -- Behavioral and Brain Sciences,v.26,no.4, p.411-412.
Steven Lehar's new heuristic model of perceptual analysis raises interesting issues but in the end falls short. Its arguments are more in the Cartesian than Gestalt tradition. Much of the argument is based on setting up theoretical straw men and ignores well known perceptual and brain science. Arguments are reviewed in light of known physiology and traditional Gestalt theory. Steven Lehar’s article purports to present a new model of perception.
