9780140171181: Mirrors in Mind (Penguin Press Science)

Written by a leading researcher into perception, a central area in current work on the brain and mind, this book looks at mirrors as fascinating objects in themselves, for what they can show about vision, and as a metaphor for the perception and understanding of the "real" world.

From Library Journal:

Mirrors and their images have been an endless source of fascination and study throughout the ages. Gregory, a neuropsychologist and founder of Britain's first hands-on science museum (the Bristol Exploratory), has written an excellent introduction to mirrors and their place in history, mythology, and scientific inquiry. His broad scope covers not only the manufacture of mirrors and scientific instruments but also explanations of illusions, symmetry, and handedness. Implications for philosophy, quantum physics, and artificial intelligence are discussed, as is the use of mirrors in the study of visual perception and in the development of art. Throughout these diverse excursions, Gregory holds the readers' interest; recommended for college and large public libraries. (Illustrations not seen.)?Lucille M. Boone, San Jose P.L., Cal.
