About this product
- DescriptionWhat is depiction? A new answer is given to this venerable question by providing a syncretistic theory of depiction that tries to combine the merits of the previous theories on the matter while dropping their defects. Thus, t only perceptual, but also both conventional and causal factors contribute in making something a picture of something else.
