Abstract:

"On Blindness opens the eyes of the sighted to the world as experienced by the blind, offering a unique opportunity to explore the challenges, frustrations, joys - and extraordinary insights - experienced in the everyday business of discovering the world without sight. What difference does sight or its absence make to our ideas about the world?" "What begins as a philosophical exchange between the noted philosopher and broadcaster Bryan Magee and the late Martin Milligan, activist and philosopher blind almost from birth, develops into a personal and intense discussion of the implications of blindness. The debate is vigorous and often heated; sometimes contentious, it is always stimulating. In discussing the range of blind experience, from those born blind to those who become blind - including those who have to cope with the shock of gaining sight they had never before possessed - On Blindness argues strongly against the notion that blindness is a simple experience. In doing so, this extraordinary book casts new light on one of the most fundamental aspects of human experience."--BOOK JACKET.
