Goethean Science as a Path of Spiritual Development

This noble individual was not conscious of the fact that at that very moment the divine within him and the divine of the universe were most intimately united. So, for Goethe, the resonance with a natural rationality seems part of the genius of modern science. Einstein's 'cosmic religion', which reflects Spinoza, also echoes Goethe's remark Ibid. Else he would give up investigating. But how far will Goethe share the devotion of these cosmic rationalists to the beautiful harmonies of mathematics, so distant from any pure and 'direct observation'?

Kepler, Spinoza, Einstein need not, and would not, rest with discovery of a pattern within, behind, as a source of, the phenomenal world, and they would not let even the most profound of descriptive generalities satisfy scientific curiosity.

For his part, Goethe sought fundamental archetypes, as in his intuition of a Urpjlanze, basic to all plants, infinitely plastic. When such would be found, Goethe would be content, for as he said to Eckermann, Feb. Here is the limit. But as a rule men are not satisfied to behold an Urphaenomenon.

They think there must be something beyond. They are like children who, having looked into a mirror, turn it around to see what is on the other side. Literature and science as modes of expression by Frederick Amrine Book 14 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide On the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Boston Studies series in , Cohen, Elkana, and Wartofsky wrote in another preface such as this that the time had come for establishing institutions supporting a vision to which the series had been devoted since its inception, namely that of a more broadly conceived, interdisciplinary study of the history and philosophy of science: In recent years it has become evident that, in addition to serious and competent disciplinary work on the specifics of the History of Science, the Philosophy of Science and the Sociology of Science, there is now a growing need to develop a problem oriented approach which no longer distinguishes between these three specialties in a cut and dried way.

Since the time has come for such an approach, the institutional tools should be provided. A way to do so would be Goethe in the history of science by Frederick Amrine Book 27 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide. Goethe in the history of science by Frederick Amrine Book 4 editions published in in English and German and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Goethe is a significant figure in the history of science. His search to develop a rigorous and empirical approach to the study of qualities represents an important complement to quantitative methods.

Toward a new theory of architecture : the first Goetheanum in pictures : an introductory lecture with slides given in Bern, Switzerland, June 29, by Rudolf Steiner Book 1 edition published in in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Rudolf Steiner gave thousands of lectures in his lifetime, usually without notes, and, with very few exceptions, with nothing more than chalk and a blackboard if he chose to accompany his speech with some kind of visual illustration.

A notable exception is the presentation that constitutes the main part of this book.

LITERATURE - Goethe

Given in June , in Bern just eighteen months before its tragic destruction by fire, this lecture and slide show consisting of a hundred slides is both the closest thing we have to a guided tour of the original Goetheanum by its architect and a profound statement of artistic purpose.

Anthroposophy in the light of Goethe's Faust : writings and lectures from mids to : volume 1 of Spiritual-scientific commentaries on Goethe's Faust by Rudolf Steiner Book 2 editions published in in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide. Religion, reason, and culture in the Age of Goethe by Elisabeth Krimmer 1 edition published in in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide "The eighteenth century is usually considered to be a time of increasing secularization in which the primacy of theology was replaced by the authority of reason, yet this lofty intellectual endeavor played itself out in a social and political reality that was heavily impacted by religious customs and institutions.
