Philosophische Studien herausgegeben


    IN the Philosophische Studien we have the first instalment of a new periodical conducted by Wilhelm Wundt, which bids fair to attract a wide circle of readers not deterred by close, hard reasoning. It contains four articles:—(1) On psychological methods, by the editor; in three sections treating of the psychophysical methods, methods of analysis of the sense-perception, and of psychological measurement of time; (2) On the length of time in the apperception of simple and compound ideas (colours and numbers), by Dr. Max Friedrich; an essay which ho doubt owes a great deal also to the editor, and containing the results of some remarkable experiments on the above phenomena; (3) Investigations on the sense of time, by Julius Kollert, in continuation of Vierordt's experiments on the same subject; (4) On mathematical induction, by the editor, under the heads of “analyticaland synthetic methods in mathematics,” “the question of the origin of mathematical principles,” “experimental beginnings of mathematics,” “permanent forms of mathematical induction,” “mathematical abstraction,” and “exact analogy.” The spirit and methods of the editor permeate the whole of this first number, and guarantee the value of the periodical.
