“….Goethe’s way of science offers hope for lessening the modern alienation from nature that not only diminishes the beauty and joy of human life, but also fuels environmental irresponsibility and apathy.”
Gordon L Miller in his Preface to Goethe’s “Metamorphosis of Plants”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1831) remains best known as a German poet, writer and statesman. He was passionately interested in science in the sense of coming to know the natural world on its own terms. His approach, which is accessible to all, is through the senses: engaging open, unbiased, inclusive observation. It is versatile and applicable, directly or indirectly, to nearly all fields of human inquiry and work. It enables informed, meaningful access, not through theories or explanations, but rather by enabling insight, guided by the senses, to align ever closer with the very nature of what is being studied.
