This chapter examines how perceptual processes help segment events, begin the complex process of giving meaning to the flux of change around each of us, and ultimately give us the social graces to differentiate friend from foe. It briefly considers the scope of this problem and then addresses in detail an analysis that focuses on how object paths play a vital role in event segmentation.

Keywords:   event perception, meaning, perceptual processes, object motion, cognition, social graces
