The seat of the soul is where the inner world and the outer world meet. Where they overlap, it is in every point of the overlap. - Novalis

Goethean Science

This is a thread I have long thought of following. I may yet. I picked it up once for a while after reading Corbin on Goethe's Theory of Colors. You will find David Abram taking note of Goethe in his work. Two key texts are these:

Goethe's Way of Science, Edited by David Seamon and Arthur Zajonc. See Seamon's webpage for more connections of considerable interest - including Christopher Alexander - and you can read the introduction to the book there too. Arthur Zajonc also seems to have done very remarkable work - look at his amazon page.

The Wholeness of Nature by Henri Bortoft.
