About the Book

Vision is about insight, and visual perception is about cognition – and they form the foundation of how we see the world.


Duco A. Schreuder, a physicist and psychologist, explores the finer details of each in this groundbreaking book that explores human consciousness and perception.


Sharing virtually everything he’s learned over a varied career spanning more than sixty years, he examines a wide array of topics, including how we understand what we visually process, how we store and retrieve information, the role that neurons play in how what we see, and much more.


While Schreuder isn’t afraid to disagree with other leading thinkers, he relies on science and focuses on the facts behind it so you can understand lighting, visual perception, engineering design, and applied and experimental physics.


Looking is about insight, whereas seeing is about knowledge, and you need to know how each one works to truly understand how humanity views the world. Whether you’re an illuminating engineer considering the fundamentals of the trade or a student or professional in an allied discipline, you’ll be well served by taking a closer look at Vision and Visual Perception.
