PASSIVE VISION AND ACTIVE VISION
This introductory chapter starts by contrasting two approaches to the study of vision, the dominant ‘passive vision’ approach as exemplified particularly in the work of Marr, and the ‘active vision’ approach which is the focus of the book. The chapter then goes on to differentiate between active vision and the vision for action framework proposed by Milner and Goodale; and to outline the relationship between active vision and the ecological approach proposed by Gibson. Finally, the chapter outlines the kinds of research questions that emerge with a focus on active vision.
