Abstract: Presents a conception of the complex psychological process of reflective seeing, particularly the stream of perceptual consciousness that is a product and a part of it, using quotations from and about E. Husserl. A view of how Husserl's ideas facilitate an understanding of complex mental phenomenon is provided. Views of inner, second-order consciousness, (ancient, modern, and present-day) are delineated, and deployments of J. J. Gibson's (1986) ecological approach to visual perception relevant to an understanding of reflective seeing are identified. ((c) 1999 APA/PsycINFO, all rights reserved)
