Abstract

Upon the assumption that visual perceptions are integrated in character and that some kind of an empirical basis is presupposed in their formation, we have attempted to segregate, for experimental purposes, two of the more commonly acknowledged factors in the estimation of relative distances. Both of these factors may be said to be functions of the stimulus, rather than of the response. A comparison of their relative influence in the distance perceptions of young children and adults, as well as a study of acuity in these perceptions, is the object of this investigation.
