dc.description.abstractPerception is inherent to our existence. Just as the word environment implies mutuality between the organism and its surroundings, it is perceive which allows the organism – whether it be a fish or a human being - to interact and function in harmony with the environment. The theories put forward by Ittelson are of value in that they establish a broad framework for study of the perception of the environment. It is interesting to note how they overlap with the theories of Gibson (whose ecology-based holistic approach to perception is discussed in part three of this study) – sometimes matching surprisingly well and at other times requiring some adjustment. However, in spite of different approaches, both Ittelson and Gibson are in agreement that the individual and the environment are inseparable and perception involves a constant interaction between the two.en
