HDV 102 Seeing Is Believing Syllabus Instructor : Dr. Craig Evinger Course Philosophy : As primates, we depend on vision to obtain most of information about the world. Experience convinces us that we possess an undistorted view of the world around us. Evolution, however, didn’t plan the visual system in advance as would an engineer. Evolution built the visual system from cellular mechanisms available in very primitive species. The result of building a visual system without a plan is that our view of the world is actually distorted and incomplete. Our brain works around these problems in visual processing to convince us that we see the world unambiguously. Advertisements and works of art, however, sometimes exploit these visual processing problems. My goal in this class is to help you understand that you can’t believe everything that you see. In other words, “question authority” especially if it’s your own brain. Jan 29
