Fechner Day is an annual observance celebrated by psychophysicists across the world. It is dedicated to the German philosopher, physicist, psychologist, and possible German board game enthusiast (though this has not been confirmed), Gustav Fechner who founded psychophysics on October 22, 1850. On this day, Fechner awoke from sleep with his famous insight on how to study the mind by examining the mathematical relation between physical stimuli and subjective sensations. This has been recognized by historians of psychology as a key contribution in the development of scientific experimental psychology.

Happy Fechner Day!
