  • Philosophy and Aesthetics Inform Science: illuminating the complex dynamics of seeing

    Noel-Bentley, Suzanne; Gillett, Grant (2017)
    Aesthetic responsivity and the phenomenology of arts processes reflect integrative self-world engagements, and are informative about the nature of the world and our biology in ways that are often not be made evident through scientific research. Akins’ and Hahn’s research regarding human trichromatic visual perception brings together the art of photography, neuroscience, and psychophysics, along with analyses of perspectives on vision in science and philosophy, to invoke anti-reductive, holist...

    The Atrocity of Representing Atrocity - Watching Kevin Carter's 'Struggling Girl'
