Affording Illusions? Natural Information and the Problem of Misperception
Avant: Journal of Philosophical-Interdisciplinary Vanguard
There are two related points at which James J. Gibson's ecological theory of visual perception remains remarkably underspecified. First, the notion of information for perception is not explicated in much detail beyond the claim that it "specifies" the environment for perception, and, thus being an objective affair, enables an organism to perceive action possibilities or "affordances." Second, misperceptions of affordances and perceptual illusions are not clearly distinguished from each other.doi:10.26913/avant.2019.03.19 fatcat:dplqacgvvfhpxabfgwipakb3wm
