"This is an outstanding overview of an exciting frontier of research on the mind. Farah has a gift for ingenious and original syntheses of complicated research topics, which makes this book an invaluable resource for anyone interested in how the brain lets us see," Steven Pinker, Professor, MIT, and author of How the Mind Works and Words and Rules"Farah’s book gives a comprehensive account of the cognitive neuroscience of vision, filtered through the judgment and enlivened by the comments of one of its best-known contributors. An excellent and lively survey to interest and inform both students and researchers." Anne Treisman, Princeton University
