Wholeness of Nature
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The Wholeness of Nature: Goethe’s Way of Science Paperback – 24 Oct 1996 by Henri Bortoft (Author)
Goethe’s approach to nature is deeply participatory. The observer engages with the phenomena to a point where he confers all of his attention to the phenomenon and the phenomenon ‘reveals’ itself to him. The observer participates in the phenomenon and with his full range of sensory capabilities engages with the qualities of the phenomenon.
