The little book of life after death by Gustav Theodor Fechner( Book )

173 editions published between 1836 and 2016 in German and English and held by 1,307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The idea worked out in this little book is that the spirits of the dead continue to exist as individuals in the living. The idea appealing to a series of kindred thoughts lying ready in my own mind, and engendering new ones, finally assumed the present shape, enlarged by a kind of spontaneous evolution into the idea of a higher life of spirits in God. The book provides a philosophy of religion in general, and especially examines the doctrine of immortality"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

Although Gustav Theodor Fechner (1801-87) had studied medicine at the University of Leipzig, he never practised as a doctor. In the 1820s he published satirical evaluations of the medical science of the day under the pseudonym 'Dr Mises' and supplemented his income by translating chemistry and physics texts. Increasingly he focused his studies on mathematics and physics, and the physical and physiological became recurrent themes in his work. With the publication of his Elemente der Psychophysik (1860), Fechner not only established the foundations of psychophysics as a field of research, but also pioneered much experimental psychology. This two-volume second edition of his 1876 work on the principles of aesthetics was published in 1897-8. In Volume 1, Fechner identifies new experimental methods while advocating the inductive study of 'aesthetics from below'. In Volume 2, he applies previously established principles in the analysis of different works of art
