On the sensations of tone as a physiological basis for the theory of music by Hermann von Helmholtz( Book )

272 editions published between 1863 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 3,261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Helmholtz applies physics, anatomy, and physiology in his study of aesthetics and physiological acoustics. He explains how tones are built from a base tone with upper partial tones, and his later discussions on consonance and musical scales develop this theory. He also discusses how the ear perceives these tones

"Helmholtz' 'Popular Scientific Lectures' have spread his fame far and wide among educated people everywhere. While he was professor at Heidelberg and still a comparatively young man, nearly three-score years ago he composed the preface to the first edition of his monumental work on light and vision, in all their intricate and manifold relations to each other; and already considerably more than a decade has passed since the publication of the posthumous third edition of the Physiologische Optik which was brought up to date and greatly enlarged under the collaboration of Nagel, Gullstrant and v. Kries. Yet in all these years there has been no English translation of this great classical treatise; and unfortunately no similar work in English of any kind. It is interesting to note that both Young and Helmholtz, the two great pioneers in Physiological Optics, started on their careers in the medical profession, and each of them afterwards gained his greatest renown in Physics. Apart from its own intrinsic value, the treatise on Physiological Optics is a model of scientific method and logical procedure that has hardly ever been excelled in these respects"--Preface.

"The favour with which the first series of Professor Helmholtz's Lectures has been received would justify, if a justification were needed, the publication of the present volume. I have to express my acknowledgments to Professor G. Croome Robertson, the editor, and to Messrs. Macmillan, the publishers of 'Mind,' for permission to use a translation of the paper on the 'Axioms of Modern Geometry' which appeared in that journal. The article on 'Academic Freedom in German Universities' contains some statements respecting the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge to which exception has been taken. These statements were a fair representation of the impression produced on the mind of a foreigner by a state of things which no longer exists in those Universities, at least to the same extent. The reform in the University system, which may be said to date from the year 1854, has brought about so many alterations both in the form and in the spirit of the regulations, that older members of the University have been known to speak of the place as so changed that they could scarcely recognise it. Hence, in respect of this article, I have availed myself of the liberty granted by Professor Helmholtz, and have altogether omitted some passages, and have slightly modified others, which would convey an erroneous impression of the present state of things. I have also on these points consulted members of the University on whose judgment I think I can rely. In other articles, where the matter is of prime importance, I have been anxious faithfully to reproduce the original; nor have I in any such cases allowed a regard for form to interfere with the plain duty of exactly rendering the author's meaning"--Preface.

Cet ouvrage rédigé entre 1856 et 1894 est un des plus importants en physiologie qui ait paru à cette époque. Cette étude se divise en trois parties bien distinctes : la dioptrique de l'oeil, les sensations visuelles, les perceptions correspondantes. Cette première partie donne les moyens par lesquels le mouvement vibratoire extérieur est conduit et transmis jusqu'à la surface nerveuse pour y produire une impression. Helmholtz y présente sa théorie de l'accommodation et une description de l'ophtalmoscope
