Seeing and retinal stability: On a sensorimotor argument for the necessity of eye movement for sight

Philosophical Psychology 26 (2):263 - 266 (2013)
Abstract
Sensorimotor theorists of perception have argued that eye movement is a necessary condition for seeing on the basis that subjects whose retinal images do not move undergo a form of blindness. I show that the argument does not work.
