Reconceptualizing Accretion and Deletion of Texture
Pages 5

James Gibson altered psychology greatly by reason of his remarkable intuitions concerning the future of the field. Two of his most enduring strategic lessons were: (a) describe the stimulus information that specifies objects, events, and layouts in the environment; and (b) examine the sensitivity of many species to that information. Gibson believed that, when information was adequately described, we would find that higher-order invariants would map in a 1 to 1 fashion to our perceptions of the environment.
