4). How we will perceive a whole object cannot in Figure 2. 4 Look steadily at these - they may not be what you think they are this case be predicted simply by adding up our sensations of the parts. Indeed, the parts may become unobservable when combined with other parts. It seems clear that the simple structuralist position has been considerably undermined. What have we to offer instead? First, let us be clear about what it is we have rejected. We are not saying that perception has nothing to do with the structure of our retinal sensations, our memory images and some sort of combination of the two.

The more complex a two-dimensional drawing becomes, the more likely it is to be seen in three dimensions if it is possible to perceive it as being in three dimensions. 5 25 Measuring simplicity: iriformation and organisation (Hochberg, 1964) of continuous lines, b, and the number of different angles, c, using the formula + b + 2c. Applied to the three figures above, it is clear that their degrees of perceived three-dimensionality are predicted by the formula. Similar points may be raised with respect to simplicity as a higher-order unit of analysis as we raised with texture density gradients: (i) Do we in fact use them?

The gradient of texture density is still of uncertain status as an analysing principle in perception. It is certainly inadequate in the following respects: (i) we have no quantitative information on how gradients determine slope, nor on how two gradients combine to give an angle between two surfaces; (ii) we need more information on what causes this cue not to be used to the fullest extent possible, for it provides enough information for the constancies to be complete and for space perception to be perfect - neither of these happens (Smith and Smith, 1962); and (iii) we have no evidence for specific physiological bases in the nervous system for this sort of analysis.
