RE:Geometrical Optics
Friedrich Schiller, in his, “Twenty Seven Letters on the Aesthetic Education of Mankind,” stated that play is the act of balancing abstract thoughts about what could be, which what actually is. He stated that it is necessary for the determination of beauty, which he defined as the connection between the actual and the ideal. It was with this sense of play that William Brown, PhD, introduced geometrical optics during my freshman year of optometry school in 1979. This aesthetic education provided for the continued construction of context out of the free interplay of content and form, as well as over four decades of fun.
