Abstract

In the edifice of visual psychology there are many mansions. This book comes from one of the finest in it. The influence of Herschel Leibowitz has been immense (e.g., teaching in four languages and publishing more than 250 papers) blending rigorous inquiry with inspirational teaching and dedicated public service. This “Decade of Behavior” festschrift is exemplary in many respects, such as giving a readable account of complicated vision problems, as bridging applied and theoretical questions, as to the productiveness of cross-disciplinary collaboration, and, last but not least, to the significance of an inspirational teacher, mentor, and colleague. Reading the book will give you a kind of immersion experience, typical in style of the man himself. The book primes the pump and lets the reader go on an inspirational journey.
