This paper presents a brief history of the life and works of three psychologists in the experimental field. Firstly, the paper looks at Gustav Theodor Fechner from Prussia. The paper then describes the life of Wilhelm Wundt from Germany, who was a disciple of the final psychologist mentioned, Hermann Ludwig Ferdinand von Helmholtz. The paper states where each of the three men earned his degrees and went on to teach.

From the Paper:

"It was during the Bonn and Heidelberg periods that Helmholtz made his most fundamental contributions to the newly emerging experimental psychology. From 1856 to 1866, the Handbuch der physiologischen Optik appeared in parts that were gathered into a single volume in 1867. In 1863, while the Optik was still appearing, Helmholtz published Die Lehre von den Tonempfindungen. While we will focus on the Optik here, these two works taken together defined the problematic for the experimental psychology of visual and auditory perception for decades to follow."
