The mathematics of symmetry does not provide an appropriate model for the human understanding of elementary motions

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (4):696-697 (2001)
Shepard's article presents an impressive application of the mathematics of symmetry to the understanding of motion. However, there are basic psychological phenomena that the model does not handle well. These include the importance of the orientations of rotational motions to salient reference systems for the understanding of the motions. An alternative model of the understanding of rotations is sketched. [Shepard].
