Description

This antiquarian book contains a treatise on the importance and influence of vision in the development of infants and children. Cinemanalysis has demonstrated that the eyes play an important role in the ontogenesis of the total action system of the child, and the nature and dynamics of that role constitute the subject matter of the present study. This is a text that will appeal to those with a keen interest in the science of human development and the importance of vision and the eye therein, and it world make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. The chapters of this book include: 'The Visual Domain', 'The Complex of Visual Functions', 'The Young Eye in Action', 'The Ontogenesis of Visual Behavior', 'Maldevelopment and Child Vision', 'A Developmental Hygiene of Child Vision', 'The Conservation of Child Vision', etcetera. We are republishing this vintage book now complete with a new prefatory biography of the author.
