Die Frage "Gibt es Atome oder nicht?" bildet in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts eine scharfe Trennlinie zwischen den empirischen Naturwissenschaften und der (noch mächtigen) Philosophie. In dieser Wendezeit, kurz bevor sich die moderne Atomphysik durchsetzt, begibt sich Gustav Theodor Fechner (1801-1887) auf eine gefährliche Gratwanderung. Überzeugt von der Zukunftsperspektive atomistischer Ansätze sammelt und ordnet er Begründungszusammenhänge für eine moderne Physik, jedoch ohne dabei die Philosophie auszugrenzen. Im Gegenteil, die philosophische Arbeit ist unerlälich für den begrifflichen Abschlu der physikalischen Untersuchungen. Fechners Werk markiert in der Wissenschaftsgeschichte den ersten und letzten Versuch, eine fruchtbare Synthese zwischen quantitativen und qualitativen Erkenntnismethoden zu schaffen, ohne die beiden Ansätze zu vermischen. Erst 150 Jahre später, am Ende des 20. Jahrhunderts, nachdem die empirischen Naturwissenschaften bereits an Grenzen gestoen sind, werden Fechners "zu frühe" ganzheitliche Überlegungen wieder aktuell

Although Gustav Theodor Fechner (1801-87) had studied medicine at the University of Leipzig, he never practised as a doctor. In the 1820s he published satirical evaluations of the medical science of the day under the pseudonym 'Dr Mises' and supplemented his income by translating chemistry and physics texts. Increasingly he focused his studies on mathematics and physics, and the physical and physiological became recurrent themes in his work. With the publication of his Elemente der Psychophysik (1860), Fechner not only established the foundations of psychophysics as a field of research, but also pioneered much experimental psychology. This two-volume second edition of his 1876 work on the principles of aesthetics was published in 1897-8. In Volume 1, Fechner identifies new experimental methods while advocating the inductive study of 'aesthetics from below'. In Volume 2, he applies previously established principles in the analysis of different works of art
