Koenderink, Irving Biederman, Donald Hoffmann, Steven Zucker and Nikos LogothetisDivided into five parts: Linking Psychophysics and Qualities; Qualities in Space, Time and Motion; Appearances; Measurement and Qualities; Science and Aesthetics of AppearancesEach chapter will have the same structure consisting of: topic overview; historical roots; debate; new perspective; methods; results and recent developments
