Pages 522 - 525

Carl Stumpf (1848-1936) was a German philosopher and psychologist. He studied in Würzburg with Franz Brentano and in Göttingen with Hermann Lotze. His contributions to phenomenology, Gestalt psychology, aesthetics, musicology and acoustics (among other disciplines) make him a significant protagonist of the cultural and intellectual milieu at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth century.
