    Symmetry, Causality, Mind

    The extraordinary book Symmetry, Causality, Mind by Michael Leyton (MIT
    Press) is now available in paperback. In this investigation of the
    psychological relationship between shape and time, Leyton argues
    compellingly that shape is used by the mind to recover the past and as
    such it forms a basis for memory. He elaborates a system of rules by
    which the conversion to memory takes place and presents a number of
    lengthy studies of paintings to support these rules. You can find out
    more about this remarkable book at
