Seeing causings and hearing gestures

Philosophical Quarterly 59 (236):405-428 (2009)
Abstract
Can humans see causal interactions? Evidence on the visual perception of causal interactions, from Michotte to contemporary work, is best interpreted as showing that we can see some causal interactions in the same sense as that in which we can hear speech. Causal perception, like speech perception, is a form of categorical perception.
