  Renshaw and the Tachistoscope
Renshaw has done work in increasing the limits and subtlety of perception of smell and taste; in increasing acuity and field of sight (of which his work in reading speed and comprehension is just a small part); and in increasing the power and strength of memory.
Renshaw claims that through the use of a super-fast timing mechanism, he has been able to achieve flashes on the tachistoscope screen that can be measured in millionths of a second, and that two students have been able to grasp nine-digit numbers at 3/1,000,000 of a second.
He challenges Renshaw's handling of data, stating that in the present case the children were not of equal native ability, and that their teaching was not of equal competence.

Despite freezing rain and sleet, over fifty people showed up to listen to Physics Professor Stuart Samuel give a public lecture on "Science and Religion: Are They in Conflict?" The event took place on December 10 at Columbia University.
Kevin Renshaw, manager of the Columbia University Bookstore and organizer of the event, noted the high interest, "This is the most people that have attended any of our readings." Was the issue of science and religion resolved in the minds of those present?
As Renshaw, Samuel and others left the room after almost two hours of discussion, some people remained and continued to debate the issue.

But, as well as exhibiting Samuel Fuller's baroque visual style indebted to yellow journalism and the comic strip (which Jean Luc-Godard appropriated in the Vietnam sequence of PIERROT LE FOU a decade later), the film opens with documentary footage before it moves on to its fictional component.

An equally uncomplimentary opinion of WEFT was voiced by Dr. Samuel Renshaw, a professor of psychology at Ohio State University, who for a number of years had made a hobby of optics, carrying his studies to the point where he even tested the deterioration of the optic nerves under the influences of alcohol.
Implementing the educational work which resulted from the Renshaw theory was the use of flash exposures, which gave the student only time to see the total form.
There are two schools of thought on the subject, the other believing that eye-sight is not actually improved but that the student learns to use his eyes more efficiently, broadening his "cone of vision." Whatever the truth, recognition training was speeded up tremendously and became progressively effective in the field.

That has been a figure bandied about for a long time.
He was familiar with Samuel Renshaw and his tachistoscope, which demonstrated that people could recognize objects and words and letters and numerals and grasp them much more quickly than originally thought.
He mentioned it in "Gulf," and we know that Captain Gilead/Joe Greene, his hero, learned to use much more of his already-exceptional mental capacity by such training and also by learning the newspeak language that was developed from the 64 principal sounds the human can make.

Mental techniques of looking at words or sentences as "gestalts" (read: as a whole) have been around since the 1940's.
Samuel Renshaw trained men in pattern recognition so that they could tell the difference between a German Plane and an Allied one at distance 5x or more greater than a normal person could tell the planes apart.
Similar techniques teach a person to look at sentences and read them in the time it takes a normal person to read a word.

 Tenser, said the Tensor: "Gulf" by Robert Heinlein
Gail begins to train him on a device that flashes numbers he must memorize up on a screen for a fraction of a second, which she calls it a Renshaw tachistoscope.
After Joe has been "rather thoroughly Renshawed" (which sounds uncomfortable), Gail begins to teach him the organization's language using a machine that displays the components of a sound on a screen (think spectrogram, although Heinlein doesn't use that word).
Heinlein crams a lot of information into the rather talky middle part of the story—phonetics and phonology, Basic English, General Semantics, and Samuel Renshaw—but it's a mixed bag of stuff I can believe and stuff that's completely improbable.

Instead of transforming children into fully developed adults, it turns out students of the natural sciences who are completely unaware of Nature as the primary fact of experience, it inflicts upon the world students of the humanities who know nothing of humanity, their own or anyone else's.
Gestalt psychologists, such as Samuel Renshaw, have devised methods for widening the range and increasing the acuity of human perceptions.
The answer is, No. Teachers in every field of psyche-physical skill, from seeing to tennis, from tightrope walking to prayer, have discovered, by trial and error, the conditions of optimum functioning within their special fields.

Dr Samuel Renshaw invented a device during World War 2 to flash photographs of enemy battleships and aircraft on a screen at speeds of 1/100 of a second.
Its purpose was to help train naval aviators, gunners and spotters to be able to tell if what they where looking at was a "Friend or Foe" many times faster and with a much higher degree of accuracy at long distances.

In the process they would develop into a benevolent and hidden "ruling" class.
The story invokes the notions of the General Semantics of Alfred Korzybski and the work of Samuel Renshaw to explain the nature of thought and how people could be trained to think more rapidly and accurately.
Critics have said that both systems are misrepresented in this story, and never claimed the kinds of results shown in the story; fans would postulate that the story is, after all, science fiction.
