|Book Title||Light-Based Science: Technology and Sustainable Development: The Legacy of Ibn Al-Haytham|
|Keywords||Physiological optics, Vision, Visual phenomena|
In this chapter, I deal with some of the many visual phenomena discussed in the first three books of the Kitab al-Manazir. Using these as examples, I assert that Ibn al-Haytham should be considered as the founder of the field of physiological optics. © 2018 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
