Perceptual theories that emphasize action are necessary but not sufficient

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (5):998-998 (2001)

Abstract

Theories that make action central to perception are plausible, though largely untried, for space perception. However, explaining object recognition, and high-level perception generally, will require reference to representations of the world in some form. Nonetheless, action is central to cognition, and explaining high-level perception will be aided by integrating an understanding of action with other aspects of perception.
