An ecological psychologist's prolegomena for perceptual development: A functional approach.
By Gibson, Eleanor J.
prolegomena refers to a prefatory essay for a field of study / intend it to include a framework for my field expressed in a set of propositions, some of them assumptions, some definitions, and some testable hypotheses / explain these and when necessary provide evidence to suppport their reasonableness / my field is the way perception develops in humans, but I think the propositions I suggest have a wider application to cognition in general / provide an alternative to the received view of perceptual development provided by information processors that rests on construction of a static representation of an object or a scene / the process begins with discrimination of individual features, which are at a later stage assembled by some mysterious attentive process
general propositions / propositions involving change in the course of perceptual development / propostions about higher order cognition (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
