Abstract

The opening of this chapter is dedicated to the contrapposto, regarded as the epitome of the thesis put forward which states that contrariety has an intimate connection with the human embodied perception of space. Without trying to answer questions regarding the causative priority between the perception of space and the perception of contrariety, a theoretical framework is proposed and empirical evidence is provided in support of the theory that there is a complex architecture of bipolar dimensional structures in direct experiences of space. This evidence implies that metrical and topological models of contrariety (which can be analyzed experimentally) may be established to deal directly with the phenomenal experience of space and open a door to a new cognitive theory of contrariety.
