  Fechner color - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fechner color is an illusion of color seen when looking at certain rapidly changing or moving fl-and-white patterns.
It is most commonly demonstrated with a device known as Benham's top.
The effect was noted by Gustav Fechner and Hermann von Helmholtz.

 Gustav Fechner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Unfortunately, from the tenable theory that the intensity of a sensation increases by definite additions of stimulus, Fechner was led on to postulate a unit of sensation, so that any sensations might be regarded as composed of n units.
Fechner also studied the still-mysterious perceptual illusion of Fechner color, whereby colors are seen in a moving pattern of fl and white..
In his last work Fechner, aged but full of hope, contrasts this joyous "daylight view" of the world with the dead, dreary "night view" of materialism.

 GUSTAV THEODOR FECHNER - LoveToKnow Article on GUSTAV THEODOR FECHNER   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The most famous outcome of his inquiries is the law known as Webers or Fechners 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.
Unfortunately, from the tenable theory that the intensity of a sensation increases by definite additions of stimulus, Fechner was led on to postulate a unit of sensation, so that any sensation s might be regarded as composed of n units.
Still, the idea of the exact measurement of sensation has been a fruitful one, and mainly through his influence on Wundt, Fechner was the father of that new psychology of laboratories which investigates human faculties with the aid of exact scientific apparatus.

 Mind, Brain, and the Experimental Psychology of Consciousness
Fechner may have set out to counter materialist metaphysics; but he was a well-trained, systematic experimentalist and a competent mathematician and the impact of his work on scientists such as Helmholtz, Ernst Mach, A.W. Volkmann, Delboeuf, and others was scientific rather than metaphysical.
Since the laws of color mixture suggest that virtually all hues can be obtained by various combinations of three primary colors, it seemed to Helmholtz that the perceived hue, brightness, and saturation of color must be derived from varying activity in three primary kinds of nerve fibers in the eye.
Experimental psychology, born with Fechner, nurtured by Helmholtz and Donders, was to be raised by Wundt.

 Weber Fechner Law   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Fechner is a lunar crater that lies on the far side of the Moon's southern hemisphere, attached to the western rim of the large Planck walled-plain.
This satellite crater 'Fechner C' is surrounded by a blanket of light-hued ''ejecta'' that spills across the southwestern half of Fechner's interior floor.
The crater rim of Fechner is relatively worn and eroded, with the eastern half of the rim reshaped due to the valley and proximity to the Planck crater.

Fechner was not always the champion of Fechner (logarithmic) scaling and he revised his ideas on this topic; this was an active area of controversy in the 1870s and 1880s.
Müller was also responsible for explanation of psychophysical judgment of weight lifting in terms of muscle response, thus emphasizing his deep commitment to physiological explanation of psychophysical results; he had a theory of absolute impression, one of the major attempts to provide a psychological theory for the nature of the sensation which is responded to.
The development of color theory is often portrayed as an unrelenting combat between the theories of Helmholtz and Hering, and the incompatibility of the two theories seems to have been a common idea in the 1920s.

 essay 1
Color perception can be divided into 12 unique colors forming a color circle wherein analogous colors are the most closely related colors and complementary colors are the most distantly related colors.
Points in between the12 fundamental color positions are successively filled as the squared harmonic numbers increase so that as the squared harmonic series approaches infinity the generated analogous color spectrum approaches a continuous frequency range.
The fact that the square of the harmonic series of numbers shows a connection between the harmonic color pattern and the EM color pattern, and that there exists a perceptual, comparative relationship between colors and tones, means that the squared harmonic series is the perceptual/physical connection between harmonic waves and EM waves.

 Panpsychism
Fechner's panpsychism was also distinctive in its endorsement of a “world-soul” or “world-mind” of which everything is a part (there are obvious echoes of Spinoza in such a view).
For instance, in a maneuver reminiscent of Democritus, colors were banished from the world of matter, replaced with the “causal powers” of physical things to produce “in the mind” the experience we call color.
Although a clear scientific thinker Fechner was given to some rather mystical flights of fancy in defense of what he called the “day-view” (that is, the vibrant, open, panpsychist understanding of the world) as opposed to the dark and dead “night-view” of materialism.

 The science and mathematics of color
In order to produce colors other than cyan, magenta, and yellow, the inks are combined on the paper, either by depositing one layer of ink on top of another or by printing tiny dot of colored ink side-by-side.
You can try this yourself by means of the color mixing applet; click on the "color printing" tab; that allows you to vary the amount of ink deposited on the paper for each of the three process primary colors.
Color painting, using tempera or oil paints, differs from color printing in that many different colors of paints are available, whereas only four colors of ink are used in standard color printing - cyan, magenta, yellow, and fl.

After Prevost, they were studied by Fechner, and the scientific literature sometimes refers to the appearance of color, where it doesn't exist, as Prevost-Fechner-Benham subjective colors.
It should be made clear that the "color" observed with a rotating disc, or cylinder, really does not exist.
A complete explanation of the observance of subjective colors lies in the secrets of human color perception and awaits further scientific research.

Finally, it should be noted that Butterfield’s Color Encoder may be used in front of a live TV camera, or with a motion picture camera (fl- and-white), or its effect may be dubbed by using an identical sequence of colored illuminants upon the scene to be shot.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Aesthetics
The constructive arts, on the other hand, always make use of extraneous material, such as color, wood, stone, or metal, with results that are not at the same time complete and visible.
The graphic and textile arts are grouped with that of painting; with sculpture, ceramics, relief-work, and every kind of engraving; the lesser decorative arts with painting and architecture.
At the same time, it remains true that high art can never be wholly dissected by the methods of the exact sciences, but rather itself lays down in turn the governing norms which art expression should follow and, having once attained its proper perfection, is not longer dependent on such expression.

 elliot w. eisner: what can education learn from the arts about the practice of education?
It was the early psychologists who were interested in making psychology a scientific enterprise, one that emulated the work done in the so-called “hard sciences.” Their aim was to develop a physics of psychology; what they called psychophysics and, consistent with their mission, made laboratories rather than studios the venues for their work.
[1] People like Galton in England and Helmholtz and Fechner in Germany were among its leaders and even William James, Charles Spearman, and G. Stanley Hall made passage to Europe to learn the secrets and methods of those seeking to create a science of mind.
The temperature of a color might be a tad too warm, the edge of a shape might be a bit too sharp, the percussion might need to be a little more dynamic.
