Phenomena are unified wholes instead of mere collections of elements, and the popularity of wholes is a cultured task. The 3rd point of expertise the authors examine, is its skill to inspire the experiencing person. ethical accountability should be grounded within the which means of person adventure, yet this calls for a attractiveness of which means - rarely attainable once we are preoccupied with summary, common legislation to the exclusion of these specific occasions that include our biographies.

It is something like the vanishing point of perspective art. The idea of straight­line rays provided the explanation for shadows in Berkeley’s time.  Therefore distance of the seen world from the eye is not part of what we perceive directly in vision.  For in case I am carried from the place where I stand 39 directly toward the moon, it is manifest the object varies, still as I go on; and by the time that I am advanced fifty or sixty semidiameters of the earth, I shall be so far from being near a small, round, luminous flat [surface] that I shall perceive nothing like it; this object having long since disappeared, and if I would recover it, it must be by going back to the earth from whence I set out.

When I focus on “my experience,” I do not mean to observe a separable object but a phenomenon (visual, auditory, or otherwise) that requires my activity and that may alter as my activity does. ” Both perceptual error and perceptual success are inexorably tied to understanding, for my “experience” is also my representation of the situation in terms of my understanding, and this element of cognition may not be separated from the perceptual object.  It does not come from the senses but from thought —it is our usual mode of understanding, or misunderstanding, that brings about the problem.
