- DescriptionBreaking from previous scholarship that sees Johannes Kepler as the culmination of a long-evolving optical tradition that traced back to Greek antiquity, the author presents Kepler instead as marking a rupture with this tradition, arguing that his theory of retinal imaging, was instrumental in prompting the turn from sight to light.
- Author BiographyA. Mark Smith is a Curators' Professor of History at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Among his numerous publications is an eight-volume critical Latin edition and English translation of Alhacen's De aspectibus.
