perspective 

One of the cues to perception of the third dimension induced by a graphic representation on a plane, as in a drawing, or as a monocular cue, such as aerial perspective or linear perspective. (Fig. P8). See depth perception.
aerial perspective Perspective influenced by the state of clarity of the atmosphere. Far away objects appear less distinct and desaturated in colour due to the diffusion of light by the air in between the object and the eye. However, a very pure atmosphere may lead to underestimation of the distance of objects as they retain their distinctness and colour in this case. Aerial perspective is used by artists who soften and blur the colour and outlines of objects that they wish to appear as far away. See shadow.
geometrical perspective See linear perspective.
linear perspective Perspective conveyed by drawing images in different sizes. For example, parallel lines receding into the distance are made to converge. (Fig. P8) Syn. geometrical perspective.

Again, he says, "Intuitively, I don't have warrant to pronounce on the falsity of claims made by my better-informed past self, even when these claims contain epistemic modals."

According to Husserl, pre-reflective consciousness uses apperception to tie together a stream of sense impressions (perspectival adumbrations) in order to have a perceived thing (1962: sec.
Thus, to return to our guiding questions, I ask whether--or not--early modern representations of interiors imply a perspectival vantage point on those interiors, and whether the insides of described interiors such as rooms intimate interiority or something else, such as economic advocacy in self-promotional advertisement.
Finally, we conclude in the vein of a multi-thetic philosophy which the above alludes to and demonstrates that perspectival appropriations of reality--even if in 'conflict'--are fundamentally transformative, whether prejudiced or scientific: 'for in the course of this analysis the human intellect cannot avoid seeing itself in its own perspectives, and only in these' (GS 374).
A first thing that we may note about perspectival anthropocentrism is that this is not the kind of anthropocentrism that philosophers who call themselves non-anthropocentrists primarily oppose.
Just as Kant believed that his "right question" represented something of a revolution for philosophy, this article will close by asking whether the flourishing of deeply engaged, strongly perspectival research might signify a "Copernican revolution"--not only for Christians in psychology, but also for the discipline of psychology itself.
"Cognition of any kind requires an object somehow given." (Allison 2004: 77) Certainly, Anschauung is insufficient for cognition and, as Allison rightly argues, requires the "cooperation of the spontaneity of understanding." What matters here, is to establish Kant's perspectival realism as the basis of his pragmatism.
I will argue that perspectival culture is so dominant today that it has led to a nearly uncritical embrace of "perception" as the heart of coin theory.
