An unusual history of sight and seeing over 500 million years, this book explores how humans have repeatedly invented new ways in which to see their surroundings - from fire, to mirrors, lightbulbs, photography and smartphones. As Far As The Eye Can See follows the history of seeing from the evolution of the eyes through to modern technology, investigating how each change to what we see has also changed the world around us, and questioning whether we have reached 'peak seeing.' Touching on aspects of art, science and psychology, the author seeks to find out why we see the world the way we do.
