Summary
"Psychological studies of touch and blindness have been fraught with controversy. Within this field there remains an important theoretical divide. Many researchers have taken a cognitive approach to the study of touch and blindness, relating these to higher order processes, such as memory and concept formation. Others adopt a different theoretical perspective, arguing that it is not necessary to consider the 'internal representation' of the stimuli when investigating touch - thus people make use of information from the physical biomechanical properties of their limbs as they assess the physical properties of objects. In addition, psychologists differ in the relative importance they place on the modality of sensory stimulation for subsequent perceptual experiences." "Touch, Representation, and Blindness brings together the leading investigators in these areas, each presenting the evidence for their side of the debate."--Jacket
