‘…thanks to work like that of W.R Russel and Nathan(1946), sceintists have become aware of the relationship of post-perceptual visual processes to tome The storage of mental images in never instanteneous; it has to do with the processing of perception…Returning to Galileo’s smile of deciphering here of what Benjamin called hte image-illiteracy of the photographeres incapable of reading thier own photographs. It is a question of visual dyslexia.
..here again, recent studies of dyslexia have established a direct connection between the subject’s visual abilities, on the one hand, and language and reading on the other. ..a dissociation of sight in which the heterogenous swamps the homogenous.”
