    The book Goethe's Way of Science (Suny Series, Environmental & Architectural Phenomenology) has a lot associated with on it. So when you make sure to read this book you can get a lot of gain. The book was compiled by the very famous author. This articles author makes some research prior to write this book. Whereas most readers are familiar with Goethe as a poet and dramatist, few are familiar with his scientific work. In this brilliant book, Henri Bortoft (who began his studies of Goethean science with J. G. Bennett and David Bohm) introduces the fascinating scientific theories of Goethe. He succeeds in showing that Goethe's way of doing science was not a poet's folly but a genuine alternative.

    Two contrasting interpretations are sketched, i. e., those of "Humboldtian science" and "Goethe's way of science", both of which sought more direct observation and study of nature than those which had become conventional in the contrasting eighteenth century approaches of Encyclopédisme and Naturphilosophie. Rudolf Steiner went to Weimar to edit the scientific writings of Goethe for the Kürschner edition of the “German National Literature.” Along with sorting and arranging Goethe's works, Steiner wrote introductions and commentaries that have been collected and published in English translation under the titles, Goethe the Scientist, Goethean Science or Nature's Open Secret.

    Modern science tends to break objects down in a purely analytical way; by contrast - Goethe was interested in the whole of a phenomenon - and in particular the relationship between the object and the observer. In this illuminating study - Henri Bortoft examines the phenomenological and cultural roots of Goethes approach to science.   Perhaps most important, they paved the way for a new aesthetic of visual representations of scientific concepts and phenomena, soon reflected in visionary works like Popular Science founder Edward Livingston Youmans’s diagrams of how chemistry works and the eccentric Victorian mathematician Oliver Byrne’s graphic interpretation of.
