Re: direct/indirect perception

Dear Julien and list

another relevant reference, and the purposer of this terminologie and theory
(theory of direct perception, or theorie of information pickup) is Gibson
(1966) The senses considered as perceptual systems. Boston, MA: Houghton
Mifflin. And  Gibson (1979)Ecological approach to visual perception. London:
Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Publishers.

I´m researching ecological approach to pattern sound recognition at the
score of cognitive sciences, and I have some papers about it. If you want, I
can send it to you.

Dear Julien,

a good reference for the direct/indirect perception issue is:

Michaels, c. F. & Carello, C. (1981). Direct Perception. Englewood Cliffs,
NJ:Prentice-Hall, Inc.

Also, a paper which might be interesting to you is this one:

Epstein, W. (1982). Percept–percept couplings. Perception, 11, 75–83.
