Summary:
Bruno Breitmeyer offers a fascinating account of the many ways that our eyes, and minds, both see and fail to see moves, ranging first from cataracts and color blindness through blindsight, acquired dyslexia, and visual agnosias. He then uses what we've learned about the limits of our sight to illustrate the limits of our ability to mentally visualize and our ability to reason, covering everything from logical fallacies to how our motives and emotions relentlessly color the way we see the world.
