This book is concerned with the philosophical preliminaries, a description of the approach, the representational framework that is proposed for the overall process of visual perception, and the way which led to it. It also addresses how the approach and framework are actually realized, and the results that have been achieved. The book consists of a set of questions and answers that are designed to help the reader to understand the way of thinking behind the approach and to relate these explanations to his or her personal experience of seeing.

Keywords:   visual perception, philosophical preliminaries, thinking, personal experience, seeing
