Abstract:

Experiments on scene perception and change blindness suggest that the visual system does not construct detailed internal models of a scene. These experiments therefore call into doubt the traditional view that vision is a process in which detailed representations of the environment must be constructed. The non-existence of such detailed representations, however, does not entail that we do not perceive the detailed environment. The "grand illusion hypothesis" that our visual world is an illusion rests on (1) a problematic "reconstructionist" conception of vision, and (2) a misconception about the character of perceptual experience.
