Casey points out that "The Dutch masters of the seventeenth century—van Ruysdael, Rembrandt, Hobbema—worked within a few score miles of Descartes and Huyghens. The triumph of Space in Cartesian philosophy (in which Matter = Space) went hand in hand with the ascendancy of Place in painting." Ibid.

"The notion that 'reality' is somehow the prerogative of experience in contact with a world of sense-data there are personal and objective, and that dreams, visions, and fantasies belong to a realm that is less solid and correspondingly interior or 'subjective', is a familiar theme in philosophy and science. But these commonplace assumptions are the result of an historical development, in which, while the idea of an objective science concerned with quantifiable aspects of phenomena develops, so the more elusive and qualitative aspects of experience come to be assigned to a private and subjective realm. If, in reverie, dream, or some other imaginative mode, images emerge from the realm, they must be derivative and secondhand - supposedly more reproductions of what was originally an authentic, perceptual experience."
