The Perception of Illusory Contours: A Skills Analysis
In this chapter we set out to argue that an analysis in terms of perceptual skill is required for the perception of both illusory contours and real contours.

It is expected that adoption of a skills analysis will cause light to be cast on the processes of perceiving both illusory and real contours.
