The author’s starting point is the difference between what he calls „haptic“ sense perception (from the Greek haptó - I touch), i. e. the touch, in which all things are of equal size and shape, and optic sense perception, which sees things in perspective, minifying those seen from a long distance and magnifying those seen from a short distance. He argues that haptic-like reason gives rise to antitheses and contradictions, while from optic-like reason our syntheses arise. Similarly to perspective as an appropriate depiction of space he postulates perspectivness as a conception of the three-dimensional depiction of spiritual world and the time phenomena. He sees the importance of perspectivness in its overcoming dualism as well as one-dimensional idealism and materialism.
