Thought is more than language

Front Cover
University of California Press, Mar 1, 2004 – Art – 345 pages
“Groundbreaking when first published in 1969, this book is now of even greater relevance to make the reader aware of the need to educate the visual sense, a matter so harmfully neglected in the present system.”–Peter Selz, author of Nathan Oliveira

“Freud argued that a cogent thought process, to say nothing of conscious intellectual work, could not exist amidst the unruliness of visual experience. Over the last half century in a sequence of landmark books, Rudolf Arnheim has not only shown us how wrong that is, he has parsed the grammar of form with uncanny acuity and taught us how to read it. Few books continue to speak to the generations after them; Visual Thinking is one of those rare exceptions.”–Jonathan Fineberg, author of Art Since 1940

Rudolf Arnheim is Professor Emeritus of the Psychology of Art at Harvard University. His books include Film as Art (California, 1957), Art and Visual Perception: A Psychology of the Creative Eye (California, 1974), The Dynamics of Architectural Form (California, 1977), and The Split and the Structure: Twenty-eight Essays (California, 1996).
