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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
