Goethe Seeing Colors Scientifically

Goethe Seeing Color Scientifically

Most approaches to Goethe's color science, his Farbenlehre, start from
presuppositions that are either too naive or too technical. If it was
always part of his purpose to cultivate wonder at natural phenomena,
he also aimed to achieve theoretical and technical sophistication.
With color, in particular, he acquired a both broad and deep
understanding of color experience, color experiments, and color
theory, and he brought to the Farbenlehre a rigorous sense of method
that he had previously developed in his investigations of flowering
plants and mammalian anatomy. Dr. Sepper's presentation will explain
and illustrate these points by inviting the audience to consider quite
basic but still scientifically important color phenomena and
experiments.

A reception will follow the lecture.
