Odyssey in Learning and Perception by Eleanor J. Gibson

Book Description

In the field of psychology, beginning in the 1950s, Eleanor J. Gibson nearly single-handedly developed the field of perceptual learning with a series of brilliant studies that culminated in the seminal work, Perceptual Learning and Development. An Odyssey in Learning and Perception brings together Gibson's scientific papers, including difficult-to-find or previously unpublished work, along with classic studies in perception and action. Gibson introduces each paper to show why the research was undertaken and concludes each section with comments linking the findings to later developments. A personal essay touches on the questions and concerns that guided her research.

Ecological Approach to Perceptual Learning and Development by Eleanor J. Gibson Ecological Approach to Perceptual Learning and Development, Paperback (April 2003)

The nature of learning is primarily thought of as a verbal process or function, but this suggests that pre-linguistic infants do not learn - when they are actually active learners. This text provides a theoretical framework for the "ecological approach" to understanding perceptual learning.
