Existentialism is a tradition of philosophical inquiry associated mainly with certain 19th and 20th-century European philosophers like Kierkegaard, Satre, Camus, Heidegger & Nietzsche who, despite profound doctrinal differences, shared the belief that philosophical thinking begins with the human subject - not merely the thinking subject, but the acting, feeling, living human individual. While the predominant value of existentialist thought is commonly acknowledged to be freedom, its primary virtue is authenticity.
Many existentialists have also regarded traditional systematic or academic philosophies, in both style and content, as too abstract and remote from concrete human experience. Søren Kierkegaard is generally considered to have been the first existentialist philosopher, though he did not use the term existentialism. He proposed that each individual—not society or religion—is solely responsible for giving meaning to life and living it passionately and sincerely, or "authentically". Existentialism became popular in the years following World War II, and strongly influenced many disciplines besides philosophy, including theology, drama, art, literature, and psychology.
Psychophysics is defined as a study of quantitative relations between psychological events and physical events or, more specifically, between sensations and the stimuli that produce them. In other words, the relationship between the mind and the physical body and how they work in unison to create your experiences.
Psychophysics was established by German scientist and philosopher Gustav Theodor Fechner. He coined the word, developed the fundamental methods, conducted elaborate psychophysical experiments, and began a line of investigation that still persists in experimental psychology. Fechner’s classic book Elemente der Psychophysik (1860) may be looked upon as the beginning not only of psychophysics but also of modern day experimental psychology.
Existential Psychophysics is a book about the individual - you, and how and why you create certain experiences in your life, both desirable and undesirable. And, how to change those undesirable experiences to desirable experiences using a personal transformation technology called Hemispheric Kinesiology (HK). It works on the premise that if it stresses you to do something, you are not going to do it well, no matter what the activity.
