Alhacen's Theory of Visual Perception : First Three Books of Alhacen's De Aspectibus

The man known as Second Ptolemy would utilize a copy of his namesakes writings and a little help from a physician named Galen to create the science of optics. Galen, for the record, was a student of Aristotle, though not directly, who spend a good deal of time understanding the human eye. Personally, I would liken Alhacen more to a Second Aristotle. He was a master teacher and analyst. Alhacen’s work would be published in the Book of Optics. This, as often the case, was translated into Latin in the 12th Century as Perspectiva. This work would be the inspiration for dozens of later scientists and inventors. This publication by Mark Smith examines some of those original writings and models. It is a great opportunity to understand the history of this great science.

Moonwalking with Einstein : The Art and Science of Remembering Everything

From the author's website: Moonwalking with Einstein recounts Joshua Foer's yearlong quest to improve his memory under the tutelage of top mental athletes. He draws on cutting-edge research, a surprising cultural history of remembering, and venerable tricks of the mentalist's trade to transform our understanding of human memory. From the United States Memory Championship to deep within the author's own mind, Moonwalking with Einstein reminds us that, in every way that matters, we are the sum of our memories. From Corsair's - read this book both to improve your memory skills and to learn more about the memory process.
