    Even what is most unnatural is Nature; even the coarsest Philistinism has something of her genius. When did Johann Wolfgang von Goethe get married? She spurts forth her creatures out of nothing, and tells them not whence they come and whither they go. Subjectivity Goethe characterizes the modern world as one in which meaning revolves not around the action of the collective but around the introspection and imagination of the subjective self. In this seminar we will read selections from Goethe's Faust in English and from his scientific writings, and weave around them a critical dialogue about our relationship to nature, science, and technology, now and in the future.

    How marvellous that she gains it all so easily! With a few draughts from the cup of Love she repays for a life full of trouble. Goethean Science stands apart from Cartesian-Newtonian Science; its alternative value system sets it apart. Through closely attending to the phenomena of amphibian development, author Craig Holdrege shows that evolution is in reality a creative process, and not simply the inevitable product of lifeless mechanisms.

    One of the concepts of Enlightenment thought was that humanity would eventually perfect itself through the advancement of knowledge and technology. How could I, to whom the only significant things are civilization [Kultur] and barbarism, hate a nation which is among the most cultivated in the world, and to which I owe a great part of my own culture? Faust's extended speeches on the qualities of Nature and the reasons that he cannot be a part of it show Goethe's faith in the spiritual qualities of the world that the Romantic tradition elevated. But mental visualisation enables the linking of these disjointed "frames" the different morphotypes into a smooth continuous metamorphosis from one form to another. Every moment she starts on the longest journeys, and every moment reaches her goal. Faust destroys Gretchen's faith and moral support through his own moral ambivalence.

Goethe on nature & on science book

Modern biology has increasingly moved out of nature and into the laboratory, driven by a desire to find an underlying mechanistic basis of life. InGoethe published his Theory of Colourswhich he considered his most important work.

Fundamental to Goethe's approach to science was his insistence that the scientist is not a passive observer of an external universe, but rather engaged in a reciprocal, participatory relationship with nature, and hence the observer is able to interact with the observed. And, between ourselves, I never hated the French, although I thanked God when we were rid of them.

Craig has expanded that talk into an essay, Goethe and the Evolution of Science. In this seminar we will read selections from Goethe's Faust in English and from his scientific writings, and weave around them a critical dialogue about our relationship to nature, science, and technology, now and in the future.

She will not hate her work. Unfortunately, the "Doing Goethean Science" section of this book is not as strong as the philosophical section -- or so it seems to this reviewer. While the classical epic poem always portrays action emanating from a great hero, all action in Faust depends on Faust's own subjective experience.

The fact that Werther ends with the protagonist's suicide and funeral—a funeral which "no clergyman attended"—made the book deeply controversial upon its anonymous publication, for on the face of it, it appeared to condone and glorify suicide.

We develop ways of thinking and perception that integrate self-reflective and critical thought, imagination, and careful, detailed observation of the phenomena. However, it is in its practical use that the approach to phenomena has the potential to change the way we, for example, interact with the land, teach science or develop our human potential.

Any phenomena, for example, rocks, plants, animals or humans - any relationships between things or social relations, or the nature of form and function, can be explored using Goethe's method of approaching phenomena.

Arndt, 2nd ed. Goethe is asking a deeply philosophical and theological question: if humanity cannot adequately name God, does God actually exist for humanity?

Goethe's methodology is mutual and intimate interaction of observer and observed; and, what transpires over time. To me this approach is very limited. They even have a "Goetheanum" designed by Steiner in Switzerland.

Aphorisms on Nature

For example, he believed that Theories, in the usual sense of the word, serve little useful purpose and are likely to mislead. This is the annoying polemical attitude Poppelbaum takes in his otherwise fascinating study in Goethean-Anthroposophical zoosophy, A New Zoology.

Steiner elaborated on that in the books The Theory of Knowledge Implicit in Goethe's World-Conception [52] and Goethe's World View, [53] in which he characterizes intuition as the instrument by which one grasps Goethe's biological archetype—The Typus.

Subject and object are born together, so that a change in the mode of one necessarily entails a change in the mode of the other. If she gives more, it is a new source of desire; but the balance quickly rights itself.

Scientists should not seek "causes" and distinguish them from effects. Through directing his attention into the thinking activity of the intellectual mind he became an onlooker consciousness. Sheldrake used Goethe to investigate how the lilies of the field actually become lilies of the field.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

His wave theory of light lost out to the particle theory of Newton and others now of course we have both, thanks to quantum physicsbut that is only after along dark journey through reductionistic materialism.

We also give off-site talks and workshops on this work. The more decisive a single experiment is thought to be, the less real significance it is likely to have. The metaphor relating the plant to thinking is neither casual nor arbitrary, but is founded upon our objective rootedness in the world.

Goethe valued "the labor of experimentation". Ideally as the experimenter's observed knowledge grows from his study of natural phenomena, so does his capacity for inner awareness, insight, Imagination, Intuition and Inspiration.

Goethean Science

What culture has won from nature will not be surrendered or given up at any price.Aphorisms on Nature. Nature! We are surrounded by her and locked in her clasp: powerless to leave her, and powerless to come closer to her.

Unasked and unwarned she takes us up into the whirl of her dance, and hurries on with us till we are weary and fall from her arms. Goethe's way of science is highly unusual because it seeks to draw together the intuitive awareness of art with the rigorous observation and thinking of science.
