How to use Fechner in a sentence
One is reminded of Fechner's playful satire by the spectacle of those poets who ape angelic modes of progression.
If we waive this religious hobby of Fechner's, there still remains his peculiarity of using words and names in a symbolical sense.
If this could be accomplished with the theory of a universal soul, then Fechner would be the greatest philosopher that ever was.
Fechner is not aware that his universal soul reflects only one half of our present outcome of philosophical study.
