The grand grand illusion illusion
Abstract:This paper considers a number of ways of understanding the hypothesis that change blindness and inattentional blindness reveal a grand illusion about visual perception. It argues that the most prominent readings of this hypothesis in the literature are untenable. It concludes that, while these results have much to teach us about perception, the only illusion they can be said to uncover is a modest and familiar one.
