Umberto Eco on Forms - Dictionary of Arguments

I 150
Definition "Good Form"/Gestalt Psychology: the "good form" is the model that requires the least information and possesses the greatest redundancy.
I 152
"Good form"/Eco: this means that the term "good form" loses all ontological necessity. It does not imply an already defining structure of the perceptual processes.
The subject can renounce the good form in favour of other possibilities. So good form is no longer a matter of course for our expectations. Good form depends on culture. And it encourages the expectation of the average person.
