This book was inspired by the case of a woman who could not see despite the fact that she was not blind. Basically, her brain did not "know" that it could see. Her blindness was not a matter of the eye not producing the correct visual input, albeit a matter of turning visual input into conscious perception. To explain her case, Goodale and Milner return (in a much more accessible way) to their theory of two visual systems that work in parallel.
