'[This reprinting is] most welcome. Even German readers have often to rely on the microform version of Koenigsberger which is part of the Landmark of Science collection. A book reprint will be much more useful. And since there is no biographical account of Helmholtz up until today, Koenigsberger remains the most important source...'--Dr. Henning SchmidgenHermann Ludwig Ferdinand von Helmholtz (1821-94) had a huge influence on German science during the mid nineteenth century, bringing it to the forefront of world attention. He was a physicist and psychologist who made seminal contributions in both fields. His Treatise on Physiological Optics (reprinted last year by Thoemmes Press) transformed the study of vision by integrating its physical and psychological dimensions. Helmholtz explained the mechanism of 'accommodation', invented the ophthalmoscope, and revived the three-colour theory of vision first proposed in 1801 by Thomas Young. He also invented the telestereoscope, produced some novel visual illusions, and argued for the involvement of knowledge in perception. Helmholtz was an inspiration to many others--notably his student Heinrich Hertz, the discoverer of radio waves.Leo Koenigsberger's three-volume Hermann von Helmholtz (1902-1903) is one of the great scientific biographies of the early twentieth century. Exhaustive and scholarly, it contains a wealth of detail about Helmholtz's personal and professional life. The books are illustrated with remarkable portraits, and a facsimile of a handwritten letter from Helmholtz to his father is included in an appendix. Koenigsberger's work remains the standard life of Helmholtz to this day. It has never been fully translated into English,and even in the original German it is scarce. At a time when interest in the life and work of Helmholtz is increasing across the world, Thoemmes Press is pleased to be able to make this vital source more widely available.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Philosophie - Philosophie des 20. Jahrhunderts / Gegenwart, Note: 1,3, Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin (Seminar fur Asthetik), Veranstaltung: Helmholtz als Sinnesphysiologe und Philosoph, 16 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Emanzipation der Naturwissenschaft im 19. Jahrhundert ging eine scharfe Abgrenzung zur Philosophie einher, welche bis heute in beiden Disziplinen nachwirkt. Die Notwendigkeit dieser Prozedur soll in dieser Arbeit hinterfragt und mit dem Beispiel der wahrnehmungstheoretischen Untersuchungen Hermann von Helmholtz eine alternative Vorgehensweise nachgezeichnet werden. Obgleich Helmholtz ein Vertreter der modernen, von jeglicher Metaphysik und Naturphilosophie befreiten Naturwissenschaft, war, sah er doch die Notwendigkeit der Einbeziehung einer bestimmten Art der Philosophie in seine naturwissenschaftlichen Forschungen, insbesondere jene zur Wahrnehmung der Sinne. Zunachst soll die Situation der Wissenschaften im 19. Jahrhundert naher beleuchtet werden und ein Blick auf den Bereich der Sinneswahrnehmung als Grenzgebiet zwischen Naturwissenschaft und Philosophie geworfen werden, gefolgt von einer kurzen Erlauterung des wissenschaftlichen Selbstverstandnisses Helmholtzens sowie seines Verhaltnisses zur Philosophie. Im Hauptteil soll seine Theorie zur visuellen Sinneswahrnehmung, bei deren Ausarbeitung sich Helmholtz auf philosophische Pfade begibt, dargestellt werden. Mit seiner zentralen Frage, wie wir von Empfindungen zu Vorstellungen kommen, beruhrt er weitere Problemstellungen zum Wirklichkeitscharakter der Wahrnehmungen sowie der Rolle des Unbewussten in der Wahrnehmung auf.

Hermann von Helmholtz (1821-1894) was a polymath of dazzling intellectual range and energy. Renowned for his co-discovery of the second law of thermodynamics and his invention of the ophthalmoscope, Helmholtz also made many other contributions to physiology, physical theory, philosophy of science and mathematics, and aesthetic thought. During the late nineteenth century, Helmholtz was revered as a scientist-sage--much like Albert Einstein in this century. David Cahan has assembled an outstanding group of European and North American historians of science and philosophy for this intellectual biography of Helmholtz, the first ever to critically assess both his published and unpublished writings. It represents a significant contribution not only to Helmholtz scholarship but also to the history of nineteenth-century science and philosophy in general.

Hermann von Helmholtz was a towering figure of nineteenth-century scientific and intellectual life. Best known for his achievements in physiology and physics, he also contributed to other disciplines such as ophthalmology, psychology, mathematics, chemical thermodynamics, and meteorology. With Helmholtz: A Life in Science, David Cahan has written a definitive biography, one that brings to light the dynamic relationship between Helmholtz’s private life, his professional pursuits, and the larger world in which he lived. ​ Utilizing all of Helmholtz’s scientific and philosophical writings, as well as previously unknown letters, this book reveals the forces that drove his life—a passion to unite the sciences, vigilant attention to the sources and methods of knowledge, and a deep appreciation of the ways in which the arts and sciences could benefit each other. By placing the overall structure and development of his scientific work and philosophy within the greater context of nineteenth-century Germany, Helmholtz also serves as cultural biography of the construction of the scientific community: its laboratories, institutes, journals, disciplinary organizations, and national and international meetings. Helmholtz’s life is a shining example of what can happen when the sciences and the humanities become interwoven in the life of one highly motivated, energetic, and gifted person.

Rezension / Literaturbericht aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Philosophie - Theoretische (Erkenntnis, Wissenschaft, Logik, Sprache), Note: 2,0, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Universität Hannover (Philosophisches Seminar), 3 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Hermann von Helmholtz (1821 - 1894) genießt noch heute große Bekanntheit als naturwissenschaftlicher Pionier insbesondere auf dem Gebiet der Physik und der Sinnesphysiologie. Zu seinen bahnbrechenden Erfindungen im Bereich der Optik zählen der bis dahin unbekannte Augenspiegel und ein Gerät zur Messung der Hornhautkrümmung. In "Über das Sehen des Menschen" beschäftigt sich Helmholtz ebenfalls mit der Optik und dem menschlichen Sehvermögen. Dies behandelt er jedoch nicht auf rein wissenschaftlicher Basis, sondern bezieht philosophische Theorien und Überlegungen mit ein, um die erkenntnistheoretischen Konsequenzen der naturwissenschaftlichen Forschung in den Vordergrund zu stellen.
