Is the argument here actually about what does, and does not constitute "the study of perception"? If we are to exclude subjective phenomena, then, as Susan Greenfield has pointed pointed out, we are 'throwing the baby out with the bathwater', and are actually studying something less than 'perception'; wasn't this the point of the Gestalt approach? Isn't what Al Bregman proposes a more modern, 'iterative approach' to hypothesis-generation which actually utilises peer-review as part of the experiment? regards, Peter Lennox Hardwick House tel: (0114) 2661509 e-mail: peter(at) or:- ppl100(at)
