August 7, 2012

For those who might be tempted to think that what analyses of audio illusions discuss are “just” mishearing, as Steven Pinker (Harvard Prof and author of “The Language Instinct”, “Words & Rules”, “The Blank Slate” and “The Stuff of Thought” etc) says “illusions are no mere curiosities, they set the intellectual agenda for centuries of Western thought” (“How The Mind Works”, Penguin 1998, page 212) – and that applies as much to sound as vision. Steven also described “Rorschach Audio” as “fascinating work”. Much more on the former business in the near future…

See “Rorschach Audio” book pages 159 and 173
