J.J. #Gibson on non-visual #perception, #proprioception, and the importance of #movement for #selfperception: “The point (...) is that information about the #self is multiple and that all kinds are picked up concurrently.” #SummerReading
We need vision for movement. Walking: feeling contact of feet w/ ground isn’t everything! “You might think that the contact of(...) the foot with a surface (...) is specified by a mechanical impression of skin, by touch (...). Nevertheless there is optical specification.” #Gibson

Personal conclusion of my re-reading of #Gibson’s Ecological Approach to Visual Perception (so far): new insights and I really like these illustrations 😍#SummerReading #Perception J.J. Gibson (1986).

“Since a major developmental task of #infancy is gaining control of the body, #cognition is thus #embodied as its origins deal with #actions of the #body in the world.” - Esther Thelen (1995)
