The mystery of the moon illusion : exploring size perception by Helen Elizabeth Ross( Book )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For thousands of years, one scientific puzzle has fascinated and perplexed the greatest philosophers, mathematicians, physicists, and psychologists - why do the moon and sun appear so much larger on the horizon than when high up in the sky? Now, two leading psychologists have provided a compelling account of this fascinating illusion. Taking us through the history, the characters involved, the attempts made to explain the illusion, through to modern day studies of visual perception, the book is the most comprehensive account of this puzzle so far. This is a work that will remain, for some time to come, the definitive book on a mystery that has fascinated and tested the greatest minds throughout the ages. Accessibly written, it will appeal to readers of popular science, along with those within the disciplines of psychology, mathematics, astronomy, and philosophy, from undergraduate upwards."--BOOK JACKET

E.H. Weber on the tactile senses by Ernst Heinrich Weber( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The reader will find here much more than those topics for which Weber is best known - the two-point threshold, experiments on weight discrimination and a statement of what is now called Weber's Law. Weber also made interesting remarks on many aspects of sensory psychology - on left-right asymmetry in sensitivity, on visual resolution, the binocular combination of colours, the moon illusion, on summation, inhibition and adaptation in sensory systems, on the difference between simultaneous and successive presentations, on selective attention, the externalisation of sensations and the difference between sensation and perception. As a scientist, Weber was working in the new area of experimental psychology; as a philosopher, he bridged the gap between philosophy and experiment. His work remains of interest to historians of science, to philosophers and to sensory psychologists
