Publication, Publisher or Distributor
In the Perceptual Structure of Three Dimensional Art, Hackett connects psychology, philosophy, and neuroscience and applies it to art. Reviewing the writing of art theorists such as Kraus and philosophers such as Paul Crowther, he establishes a need to examine the philosophical aspects concerning the perception of spatial relationships in two and three-dimensional art. The book showcases Crowther’s ontological model, while also combining structuralist and post-structuralist approaches to artistic perception and understanding with the conceptual structure from facet theory.
