The Myth of Persistence of Vision Revisited.
Anderson, Joseph; Anderson, Barbara
Journal of Film and Video, v45 n1 p3-12 Spr 1993
Argues that "persistence of vision" myth (the succession of still images perceived as continuous motion) has a place in the history of film scholarship but can no longer be given currency in film theory. Suggests replacement of the concept of the passive viewer implied by the myth by an enlightened understanding of how viewers actually interface with motion pictures. (RS)
