Visual thinking Reading notes

A person who wished to insist that perception is only the recording of individual items can argue that elementary generalities are not due to abstraction at all but rather to imprecise observation.

Perceptual abstraction cannot be dismissed as an inability. It is a positive accomplishment, typically of great precision because of the relative simplicity of the form patterns drawn from the stimulus material.

Little knowledge would be obtained about such organized wholes if abstraction consisted in the extraction of random trial.
