This chapter discusses how the dualist model of human visual processing presented in the book departs from Milner and Goodale's (1995) dualist model. It first argues that the concept of action involved in their notion of ‘vision-for-action’ is overly narrow. In the process, it reflects on the complexities of the notion of a perceptual object. The chapter then argues that Milner and Goodale's model underestimates the role of the parietal lobes, not only in the organization of high-level pragmatic visual processing (i.e. for action) but also, for the visual perception of spatial relationships.

Keywords:   human visual processing, visual perception, action, perceptual object, parietal lobes
