On perceived motion and figural organization by Max Wertheimer( )

18 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,006 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are few articles in science that remain relevant over a span of 100 years; Max Wertheimer's pioneering experimental studies on apparent motion and figural organization are notable exceptions. Wertheimer's 1912 account of motion perception started a revolution and established the Gestalt school of psychology. It also paved the way for further investigations of apparent motion perception, including subsequent research by Oliver Braddick, Stuart Anstis, Vilaynur Ramachandran, and others. Wertheimer's 1923 article on figural organization (known as the "dot study" for its numerous examples of dot patterns) helped define grouping as a principle of figure-ground perception. This book provides contemporary readers and researchers with Wertheimer's two pivotal articles, newly translated into English and each accompanied by a synopsis, and two essays on apparent motion and figural organization that describe the long-term impact of Wertheimer's work. The translation of the original German into readable English prose allows English-language readers for the first time to appreciate Wertheimer's visionary ideas. The accompanying essays tie Wertheimer's phenomenological descriptions to the underlying neuronal mechanisms, bridging the years between the articles' first publication and modern research

Zur Gestaltpsychologie menschlicher Werte : Aufsätze 1934-1940 by Max Wertheimer( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in German and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Aufsatze Max Wertheimers iiber Wahrheit, Ethik, De mokratie und Freiheit, hier zum erst en Mal in Deutsch, der Muttersprache des Verfassers, in einem Band verei nigt, haben seit ihrer Entstehung vor 50 J ahren nichts an Aktualitat eingebiiBt. Als 1950 zum ersten Mal ein Band mit diesen Aufsatzen in den USA geplant war, schrieb Al bert Einstein ein Vorwort: auf deutsch. Der Leser fmdet es auf den Seiten 9 und 10. Albert Einstein war - die Freundschaft zwischen beiden machte es moglich -"Ver suchsperson" Max Wertheimers; das Ergebnis fmdet sich in dem von Wolfgang Metzger ins Deutsche iibertragenen und schon als amerikanische Originalausgabe 1945 post hum erschienenen Werk "Produktives Denken" (deutsch: 1964) als Kapitel VII unter der Uberschrift: "Einstein: Das Denken, das zur Relativitatstheorie fiihrte". Dankbar bin ich insbesondere Michael Wertheimer, einem der beiden Sohne Max Wertheimers, selbst angesehener Professor fUr Psychologie an der Universitat von Colorado in Boulder, fUr seinen Anteil an der Entstehung dieses Bandes; er hat sie mit Rat und Tat begleitet, Photos zur Verfiigung gestellt und nicht zuletzt samtliche Ubersetzun gen in diesem Band, einschlieBlich der seines eigenen wichtigen Beitrags (S. 132), iiberpriift und korrigiert. Die 8 VOlWOrt Obersetzungsarbeit hat dankenswerterweise Marianne Kerres mit mir geteilt. Mir war es immer wieder eine Frage, warum ieh erst Jahre naeh AbsehluB meines Studiums auf diese Arbeiten Max Wertheimers aufmerksam wurde, warum sie nieht Hingst jemand iibersetzt hatte und ob nieht jemand die Oberset zungsarbeit endlieh iibernahme
