Cross-Cutural Contributions to Psychology: Selected Papers from the Fourth International Conference of the International Association of Cross-Cultural Psychology
Individual and group differences in susceptibility to various visual illusions have interested psychologists at least since Binet (1895). At present, there appear to be at least two more-or-less competing explanations of the ontogeny of illusion suscpetibility: Piaget's (1969) "Law of Relative Centrations" and Segall, Campell and Herskovits' 91966) "Carpentered World" hypothesis. While these theories sometimes produce similar predications, they may also lead to contradictory ones.
