Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0520242262, Paperback)

For thirty-five years Visual Thinking has been the gold standard for art educators, psychologists, and general readers alike. In this seminal work, Arnheim, author of The Dynamics of Architectural Form, Film as Art, Toward a Psychology of Art, and Art and Visual Perception, asserts that all thinking (not just thinking related to art) is basically perceptual in nature, and that the ancient dichotomy between seeing and thinking, between perceiving and reasoning, is false and misleading. An indis-pensable tool for students and for those interested in the arts.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:10:22 -0400)

"This book is an attempt to proceed from earlier studies of art to a broader concern with visual perception as a cognitive activity ..."--Pref.
