The development of linear perspective in the 15th century represented a radical transformation in the
European's sense of the world, the body and the self. Robert Romanyshyn's latest book examines the
claim that the development of linear perspective vision was and is indispensable to the emergence of our
technological world. It does so by telling the story of how an artistic technique has become a cultural
habit of mind.
