Fechner: The Man in the Mask.
Ludlow, Larry H.; Alvarez-Salvat, Rose
Popular Measurement, v3 n1 p5-6 Spr 2000
Describes the life and work of Gustav Fechner, whose drive to model the world left a heritage of measurement used daily. His efforts to link body and mind, or stimulus and sensation, led to his proposal that a geometric series in the intensity of a stimulus might correspond to an arithmetic series in the sensation.
