All these data and more were the introduction to his new theory of vision, which formed the basis for future knowledge in this subject. Importantly, this theory of vision proposed that light.

    By tradition, modern theories of vision began with the optical conclusions of Johannes Kepler (). Working within the mathematical tradition of medieval perspectivists, and benefiting from the ocular anatomy presented by Felix Platter (), Kepler's genius was resolving a key question, 'How an infinity of rays from each point in.

      This book should be read together with the classic text Theories of Vision from al-Kindi to Kepler (reviewed in Science in ) (3, 4). Both books are based on the same facts, but Lindberg and Smith ultimately disagree as to whether Kepler's discovery was incremental or radical. I would recommend this book very highly for two : Christopher Dainty. • P.
