The psychology of colour
Are we preconditioned to pick out the six colours on a Rubik’s cube whatever tongue it is taught to think in. Or can you chop the spectrum into categories anywhere along its length and rely on the language an individual learns from his parents to explain where that chopping takes place.

    Nice article, Gordon. And free. How fascinating. Always I was puzzled by the arty mob who would gaily call colours anything they wanted. Where does yellow end and orange begin has long vexed me. And here it’s actually discussed. Artists don’t comprehend the electromagnetic spectrum.
