This chapter surveys classical philosophies on blindness and cross-modal transfer, and how these philosophies’ methods have affected our understanding of visual impairment. The study is designed to help the reader understand why we think sense data from low or no vision can only be enhanced or substituted through touch. The survey’s discussion is necessary for those working with people who are visually impaired, to understand the epistemological history of learning theory and visual impairment in their practice.
