This comprehensive introduction to Sensation and Perception has been highly praised for its unique approach, which begins with the minor senses and progresses to vision. The book begins with an introductory chapter on general physiological, perceptual and theoretical principles which gives the reader the conceptual tools to build a clear understanding of how we perceive the world. The next two chapters then flesh out basic topics such as transduction, receptive fields, and sensory adaptation via coverage of the minor senses (touch, balance, smell, and taste). Later chapters on hearing and vision build on these foundations. This approach allows students to thoroughly grasp the fundamental principles in relation to the relatively simple sensory systems before moving on to the more complex topics. Unlike other perception textbooks, this has a whole chapter on Individual Differences, which considers potential sources of difference such as age, sex, expertise and culture. This full-color 2nd edition has been revised and updated to include: Revised and expanded coverage of taste processing and perception, touch perception, pitch perception, and receptive field modeling. New sections on word perception, the size after-effect, crowding, scene perception, and optic flow. A completely new chapter devoted to multi-sensory processing and synesthesia, with a new tutorial on attentional effects in perception. A new tutorial on visual dysfunction in artists. The book includes a number of helpful textbook features, such as key terms, chapter summaries, and student and instructor supplementary resources. There are also 'Tutorial' sections in each chapter, which provide an opportunity for students to advance their studies by exploring supplementary information on recent or controversial developments. Further, over 700 references to original source material lead the interested reader into the specialist literature. Foundations of Sensation and Perception provides students with a thorough analysis of our perceptual experience, how it relates to the physical properties of the world and how it is linked to the biological properties of the brain. It will be an invaluable resource for those studying psychology and neuroscience, enabling the reader to achieve a firm grasp of current knowledge concerning the complex processes that underlie our perception of the world. Student Resources: Perception Student Learning Program The student website includes our Perception Student Learning Program (Perception SLP) which offers a unique and innovative approach to study. The Perception SLP is available free of charge to departments adopting Foundations of Sensation and Perception by George Mather. Each chapter from Foundations of Sensation and Perception is condensed into a concise summary version, providing an effective set of revision notes. These notes also expand on and elucidate the book's content, with references to specific pages in the textbook. 'Must know' information is presented in a clear, accessible style, along with sections to stretch more advanced students. The notes also provide an integrative framework for a range of interactive multimedia materials and features, including: Animations and simulations of key perceptual phenomena Fill-in-the-blank questions Multiple-choice questions Key-term definitions Research studies Short-essay questions Links to related websites. Several demo chapters from the Perception Student Learning Program are available to view. Instructor Resources We offer web-based, password-protected resources free of charge to instructors who recommend Foundations of Sensation and Perception by George Mather. These resources include: A comprehensive chapter-by-chapter slideshow lecture course A set of short-answer questions per chapter to stimulate discussion.

Product Description: This book tells the amazing story of perception -- how experiences are created by your senses and how you use these experiences to interact with the environment.

We can see a theft, hear a lie, and feel a stabbing. These are morally important perceptions. But are they also moral perceptions--distinctively moral responses? In this book, Robert Audi develops an original account of moral perceptions, shows how they figure in human experience, and argues that they provide moral knowledge. He offers a theory of perception as an informative representational relation to objects and events. He describes the experiential elements in perception, illustrates moral perception in relation to everyday observations, and explains how moral perception justifies moral judgments and contributes to objectivity in ethics. Moral perception does not occur in isolation. Intuition and emotion may facilitate it, influence it, and be elicited by it. Audi explores the nature and variety of intuitions and their relation to both moral perception and emotion, providing the broadest and most refined statement to date of his widely discussed intuitionist view in ethics. He also distinguishes several kinds of moral disagreement and assesses the challenge it poses for ethical objectivism. Philosophically argued but interdisciplinary in scope and interest, Moral Perception advances our understanding of central problems in ethics, moral psychology, epistemology, and the theory of the emotions.
