Remarks on the geometry of visibles

Philosophical Quarterly 53 (213):581–586 (2003)
Abstract
An explication is offered of Reid’s claim (discussed recently by Yaffe and others) that the geometry of the visual field is spherical geometry. It is shown that the sphere is the only surface whose geometry coincides, in a certain strong sense, with the geometry of visibles.
