The Inkblots: Hermann Rorschach, His Iconic Test, and the Power of Seeing

March 13, 2017 10:39 AM | Kim Fox (Administrator)

"In this first-ever biography of Rorschach, Damion Searls draws on unpublished letters and diaries and a cache of previously unknown interviews with Rorschach’s family, friends, and colleagues to tell the unlikely story of the test’s creation, its controversial reinvention, and its remarkable endurance—and what it all reveals about the power of perception. Elegant and original, The Inkblots shines a light on the twentieth century’s most visionary synthesis of art and science."
