Dear List, Does anybody know of a good summary (historical and scientific) of Weber and Fechner. Maybe a book chapter, for example? I am interested, for example, on what medium they mainly worked with (sound, light, weight, ...), historical tidbits, a background of what was known at the time, how much mathematics they really had in their work, and stuff like that. I know about Boring's book on the History of Psychophysics, and I plan to give that a whirl (I am worried that it is long and tedious to read). -Jont B.
