Part of the Urban and Landscape Perspectives book series (URBANLAND, volume 5)

The difference and contrast between “representation” and “vision” (in the uses of these terms that have been introduced, defined and employed here) and the reference to the inseparability – when we wish to move within a symbolic dimension, of the presence of a “context of an antinomic type” which is, precisely due to this, inherently ambiguous – recalls and places, in an immediate manner, the theme of ambiguity of the figures used in a particular way of treating and using the figure-background relationship.
