Abstract:

Part of the set: Biggam, Carole P., Christian J. Kay and Nicola Pitchford
(Eds), Progress in Colour Studies: Volume I. Language and culture & Volume
II. Psychological aspects (set). 

The study of colour attracts researchers from a wide range of disciplines
from both the sciences and the arts. Along with its companion volume,
Progress in Colour Studies 1: Language and Culture, this book offers a
fascinating insight into current issues and research into colour. Most of
the papers originated in a 2004 conference entitled 'Progress in Colour
Studies' held in the University of Glasgow, U.K. Some additional invited
papers are included from investigators exploring new and exciting avenues
of colour research. The contributions to both books represent reviews of
state-of-the-art colour research in various disciplines, and some new
research findings are reported. This volume, principally psychological in
content, focuses on the development of colour perception and colour
language, from infancy into adulthood, across a diverse range of cultures,
including English, Himba, Chinese, and Mexican, and on the intriguing yet
perplexing condition of synaesthesia, thus bridging research from the
physiology, psychology and anthropology of colour.

"I learned much from this volume. The field of colour is much greater than
that to which I pay the most attention. Only through meetings like PICS and
volumes like this can we hope to learn the different points of views of
researchers from other disciplines and provide a more integrated
understanding of colour as part of our psyche and a part of our world." 
-Ken Knoblauch, 2006
