Ancient research finds that perceptual theories and types are doomed to fairly brief lives. the most well-liked modern theories in perceptual technology don't have as vast an attractiveness between researchers as perform a little of these in different sciences. to appreciate those problems, the authors of the current quantity discover the conceptual and philosophical foundations of perceptual technological know-how. according to logical analyses of assorted difficulties, theories, and types, they provide a couple of purposes for the present weak spot of perceptual motives. New theoretical techniques also are proposed. on the finish of every bankruptcy, dicussants give a contribution to the conclusions by way of severely studying the authors' principles and analyses.

Описание: В 1966 году в Национальной библиотеке в Мадриде были обнаружены два манускрипта, написанные Леонардо. Когда-то они не были учтены при каталогизации, и об их существовании не было известно. Этим двум манускриптам дали условные названия «Мадридский кодекс I» и «Мадридский кодекс II».
«Мадридский кодекс I» состоит из 192 листов 1490—1499 годов написания, содержащих изображения различных механизмов и изложения теории механики. Хотя работа и посвящена механике, в ней есть заметки по астрономии и по оптике.
«Мадридский кодекс II» был создан Леонардо в 1503—1505 гг. и состоит из 158 листов. Он собрал исследования в области геометрии, такие, например, как «квадратуры круга». Кроме этого, в нём содержатся работы по перспективе и оптике. В книге можно найти эскизы морских и топографических карт, рассматриваются проблемы военной техники и архитектуры. Самое интересное в этом кодексе — неосуществлённый проект изменения русла реки Арно, эскизы фрески «Битва при Ангиари» и конного памятника Франческо Сфорца.

1) The question of localization: Where are the processes located in the brain? This is the macro-question, the question of identifiable units that are so large that they are visible to naked eye. I must admit to have been tremendously troubled by the arrival on the scene of the PET technique in the recent decade as I thought through my essentially anti-reductionist, pro-behaviorist argument. Both of these devices have the capability to localize particular psychological functions within the working brain.

This neobehaviorism would be ambitious to solve the classic problems of perceptual psychology, but modest in avoiding recourse to strategies that are patently beyond the limits of this or any other science. All too much of our effort has been spent on unattainable goals in the past few decades. I believe such a strategic redirection would be a major step towards a realistic and mature scientific approach to perceptual science. Acknowledgment. I am deeply grateful to Gustav Levine and Peter Killeen for their constructive comments that have educated and enlightened me about both typos and conceptos in an early draft of this essay.
