Paper Abstract

Late 19th Century Gestalt psychologists rebelled against the tenants of traditional epistemology and newly defined psychophysics. They introduced powerful new ideas. These ideas were supported by a myriad of experiments showing that the whole is not the sum of the parts. These appearance experiments include Simultaneous Contrast, Gelb's doorway, and Benary's Cross. The traditional Gestalt explanations of these experiments call for cognitive top-down interferences, that are difficult to describe as detailed computer models.
