Overview

"The longing of every man to be, after his death, once more with those he loved most dearly in this life, shall be fulfilled in a more perfect degree than you ever thought of or hoped for." Chapter VI.. p. 60.

Such a statement coming with authority has dynamic force to move the mind of man to renewed investigation of this most fundamental question, '* If a man die, shall he live again!"

Wundt says, "Fechner was the first to introduce exact methods, exact principles of measurement and experimental observation for the investigation of psychic phenomena, and thereby to open a prospect of a psychological science in the strict sense of the word.'

About the Author

Gustav Theodor Fechner (19 April 1801 – 18 November 1887) was a German philosopher, physicist and experimental psychologist. An early pioneer in experimental psychology and founder of psychophysics, he inspired many 20th-century scientists and philosophers. He is also credited with demonstrating the non-linear relationship between psychological sensation and the physical intensity of a stimulus via the formula: S = K ln ? I, which became known as the Weber–Fechner law. Fechner's epoch-making work was his Elemente der Psychophysik (1860). He started from the monistic thought that bodily facts and conscious facts, though not reducible one to the other, are different sides of one reality. His originality lies in trying to discover an exact mathematical relation between them. The most famous outcome of his inquiries is the law known as the Weber–Fechner law which may be expressed as follows: "In order that the intensity of a sensation may increase in arithmetical progression, the stimulus must increase in geometrical progression."
