    Greetings Humanists,
    Hello, It is an exquisite honour for me to introduce the new book of
    Professor Donald Hoffman, the "VISUAL INTELLIGENCE"..his book explored the
    extraordinary, overlooked creative genius of the mind's eye. Professor
    Hoffman is Professor of cognitive science, philosophy, and computer
    science at the University of California, Irvine. In an informal style
    replete with illustrations, cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman presents
    the compelling scientific evidence for vision's constructive powers..In
    the words of Professor Hoffman..Visual Intelligence is the power that
    people use to "construct and experience of objects out of colors, lines,
    and motions."
    Some excerpts about the book can be read at
    Thank you.
    With best regards
    Arun Tripathi
