Because of the ease with which we perceive, many people see perception as something that "just happens." However, even seemingly simple perceptual experiences involve complex underlying mechanisms, which are often hidden from our conscious experience. These mechanisms are being investigated by researchers and theorists in fields such as psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience, computer science, and philosophy. A few examples of the questions posed by these investigations are, What do infants perceive? How does perception develop? What do perceptual disorders reveal about normal functioning? How can information from one sense, such as hearing, be affected by information from another sense, such as vision? How is the information from all of our senses combined to result in our perception of a coherent environment? What are some practical outcomes of basic research in perception? These are just a few of the questions this encyclopedia will consider, as it presents a comprehensive overview of the field of perception for students, researchers, and professionals in psychology, the cognitive sciences, neuroscience, and related medical disciplines such as neurology and ophthalmology.

Seeing and reading this sentence may seem like a no brainer--but your perception is just a tiny part of what is happening in your brain and body right now (both are much busier than you might think). SENSATION AND PERCEPTION has helped many readers understand the ties between how we sense the world and how the body interprets these senses. A key strength of this book has always been the ability to illustrate concepts through examples and visuals. Dr. Goldstein walks you through an intriguing journey of the senses, combining clear writing, his extensive classroom experience, and innovative research to create a visual, colorful book.

…A hard dialectical conversation between a Clinician in Practical Oncology and a Theoretician of the Philosophical Onccologicum… …It is Pragmatism versus Idealism, or the battlefield between the Physician of the Hippocratic Oath and the Metaphysician of the Platonic Eidos... Why this title or belittled through the apparently same term in Oncology, but written into a dissimilarity form, Onccology-Onkkologie? Is it a confrontation between English terminology and the German one? Or a synthesis between the two like in Denglish? Could be this terrible human tumor defeated through a counter tumor? Tumor cell to be annihilated through an Anti-tumor Cell? A cancer cell defeated through an anti-tumor Cell? Could the classical concept to give birth to the anti-concept? Alternatively, classical terminology to give birth to anti-terminology? …to such questions, our endeavor book is trying to give an answer, at least in a theoretical form and expression… Onccologist & Onkkologist

…We are under pressure in re-thinking and um-thinking of the whole of the European Union history, after big waves of union’s earthquakes, by mentioning here the big financial crisis between 2008-2010, or Brexit of Great Britain in 2020, an embittered fought inside of the European Union between the years of 2016 and the present 2021… …It is not mentioned here the waves of migrants in the last ten years towards European Union, through which a world of social pathology is accompanied and enhanced by a dramatic pandemic’s world of biologic pathology, this worst issues of viral disease, out-breaking in the year 2019, ravaging uninterrupted the world ever since, till the present days of May 2021… …We will remake another configuration of the initial CONSTITUTION OF EUROPE, written and published with about 15 years ago, resembling a parallel dialectical becoming between a finisher and a re-finisher in constitution or between an influencer and re-influencer in social sciences… Terminology of different constitutions will be different in their substance and their semantics, reflecting the difference in temporality and creativity of the author, but the basic principles of ethics and morality are into the both constitutions, the sameness … If European Union needs a constitution, then, European Union must know the history of Europe, must know the inhabitants, the native, the people and citizens of Europe, the science and technology of Europe, the art and religions of Europe, the geography and demography of Europe, since the oldest times of Upper Paleolithic, of Neolithic, of Antiquity, of Middle Age, of Renaissance, of Enlightenment, of Modern Times and of present Third Millennium, all in detail, in reality, in morality and rationality… More than that, our Constitution of European Union is desired to be and to become, a pilot project in searching and researching in anthropo-sapientology, a vector of axiological and epistemological substance in knowledge and discoveries… Constitutionalist of European Union

…By trying to overcome the individuality of the philosophical and theological ECCE HOMO, regarding the human individuality, or its redeemed deity, by passing from the out-expression of Look the Man! or Here’s the Man! Through a bio-ontological interpretation of the Specie Sapiens, as ECCE SAPIENS, is the main topic of our book. But, the image of the founder of Christianity, Jesus Christ, as one of prototype of humanity, an event taking place of ca. 2000 years ago, before of our era (BCE), analyzed in ECCE HOMO, confronting the present time image of the ECCE SAPIENS, Look the Species! Or here’s the Species! Will show up the difficulties of this endeavor… It is also very difficult to make a clear prototype of the Species Sapiens, and, in the same time, the image of Species who was appearing on the scene of the evolutionary and revolutionary biological world of our planetary Earth, in the last of ca. about 50.000 years ago, before the present times (BPT) just taking in account the obscure origin of our Species and its beginning through culture and civilizations on our planetary earth. The author is rethinking its own Species in re-analyzing oneself towards the triad UPSAPIENS – DOWNSAPIENS – ANTISAPIENS, and the overcoming of the human selfness as SUPERHUMAN! …But, if the Jesus Christ, as prototype of the Man-like-Deity has a living death on the Golgotha’s cross, the Socrates, the prototype of the Man-like-Man, has a rational and thinking death in the bed of Athena, by drinking the Cucuta’s poison, then, the Sapiens-like-Sapiens, must admit its own negation, at least, a metaphysical one, through Anti-Sapiens… Upsapientologist
