My Library - By Subject Matter

Primarily, unlike other pages, this is essentially more for myself than the reader, in that here I list my library as according to subject matter, to more easily see the references of any one subject. Note that this purposefully excludes mathematics, in that the main pages are effectively this listing, with the addition of related materials here.


Perception; Impossible Figures, Optical Illusion etc

 

Botwinick, Jack. ‘Husband and Father-in-Law - A Reversible Figure’. American Journal of Psychology, Vol. 74, 1961, pp. 312-313. (22 April 2020)

‘Husband and Father-in-Law’, stated as the complement to (Hills?) ‘My Wife and My Mother-in-Law’. It is not stated if this is of Botwinick’s devising. Quoted by Block and Yuker.


Bradley, Drake R. and Heywood M. Petry. ‘Organizational determinants of subjective contour: The subjective Necker cube’. American Journal of Psychology, Vol. 90, June 1977, No. 2, pp. 253-262 (23 April 2020)

Largely popular. Quoted by Block and Yuker.


Carmichael, L. ‘Another Hidden-Figure Puzzle’. American Journal of Psychology, Vol. 64, June 1951, pp. 137-138 (23 April 2020)

Popular. Quoted by Block and Yuker.


Edwin. J. Boring. ‘A New Ambiguous Figure’. American Journal of Psychology, Vol. 42, 1930, pp. 444-445. (22 April 2020)

Ostensibly on ‘My Wife and My Mother-in-Law’ discussion, as drawn by the well-known cartoonist A. E. Hill, in Puck, of 1915. However, the work itself is only discussed, briefly, at the end of the paper! This paper is commonly stated in the literature. It also mentions a ‘puzzle-picture’. I am unfamiliar with, Gudden’s ‘brain-and-babies’, of 1896. I looked for this on the web but did not find it. Quoted by Block and Yuker.


Erb, Margaret B. and Karl M. Dallenbach. ‘‘Subjective Colors’ from Line-Patterns’. American Journal of Psychology, Vol. 52, June 1939, pp. 227-241 (23 April 2020)
