Not illustrated. 1896 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER VI. Sensations of Light and Color. The aim of the following experiments is not to settle conflicting color theories, but rather to present the most important experimental facts which all color theories must take into account.1 Authoritative statements of theories may be found as follows: Young-Helmholtz theory; Helmholtz, A, 344-350, Fr. 380-387, 424-425, 484 (290-294, 320-321, 367); B, 249-256. Hering's theory; Hering, A, 70-141; M, 76-79. Hering has not yet made a general statement of his theory in its later developments, and his present views must be. gathered in more or less fragmentary condition from his numerous special articles. The theories of Helmholtz and Hering are the most prominent of current theories; and something on them, especially on the first, will be found in the physiologies generally, and in some works on color in the arts. Of other theories there are a considerable number; see, for some of them, von Kries; Wundt, A, and B; Donders, A and B; Christine Ladd Franklin, A and B; Ebbinghaus, A. Most color theories attempt to simplify the multiplicity of ordinary color sensations by considering them as compounds of a small number of simple or primary sensations. The number of primary colors is different in different theories; red, green, and violet (or blue) are selected by 1 For concise statements of these facts, see Wundt, A, 3te Aufl., I., 487, 501, 4te Aufl., I., 529; and Christine Ladd Franklin, A. the supporters of the Young-Helmholtz theory; red, green, yellow, and blue by Hering, Mach, and others; while Wundt is indisposed to make any particular colors more original for sensation than the rest. The selection has generally been dictated by considerations of physics, or the results of introspective analysis...
