AbstractWith the subject of good lighting conditions commanding wide-spread attention, the debate over the value of full-spectrum fluorescent lighting needs to be looked at more closely. Lighting design should accommodate six human needs: visibility, activity, health & safety, mood and comfort, social contact and communication, aesthetic appreciation. Claims about the superiority of one lighting product over another should be evaluated against criteria in all of these areas. However, this assessment also requires attention to architectural design, maintenance, economics, and energy issues. No one product fits all circumstances.
