Projective Geometry Workshop on Path Curves

The Field Centre GL6 0QE United Kingdom + Google Map
£125

Feb 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 2018 The Field Centre, Nailsworth.GL6 0QE Path curve geometry arises out of the simplest play of points, straight lines and planes (flat surfaces). It allows us to enter into movement in the constructions and gives rise to families of curves within a flexible lawfulness, a field of form. These curves and curving surfaces are not only often beautiful and elegant, but can be seen to occur in many forms within living organisms. We can discover  inherent…

Goethean Psychology – workshop with Graham Kennish

05/05/2018 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
The Field Centre GL6 0QE United Kingdom + Google Map

In this workshop, Graham Kennish will offer experiential exercises to illustrate Goethean research. Friday's lecture is not a requirement for joining the workshop. Goethean science has not yet turned its attention to psychology and this is remarkable given that the basis of all Goethean scientific work is observation of the phenomena, with the human soul as the laboratory for that research. Clearly, a Goethean psychology must be consistent with the methods of Goethean science. It cannot create theories about the…

On the Shoulders of Giants

21/09/2018 - 23/09/2018
Glasshouse Arts Centre, Wollaston Road Stourbridge DY8 4HF + Google Map

ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS  The Legacy of Newton, Goethe and Turner  Newton, Goethe and Turner are undisputed giants in the fields of science, literature and art respectively. All three strove to understand the nature of light, darkness and colour. They did this not independently of their predecessors but in critical relation to them. Goethe’s criticism of Newton is famous - infamous even - and the marginalia of Turner’s copy of Goethe’s Theory of Colours reveal that Goethe had not…

Steiner Research Day

Glasshouse Arts Centre, Wollaston Road Stourbridge DY8 4HF + Google Map

STEINER RESEARCH DAYS  / Steiner Forschungstage  Since 2005, a group of students and young academics has been meeting twice a year to discuss how to undertake research on Steiner in a way that has academic rigour on the one hand and an openness to the ideas of Steiner on the other. These gatherings have been primarily for presenting research projects relating to Steiner and discussing research methods. A common characteristic has been mutual interest in other people’s research, as well…

“Bortoft on the Wholeness of Nature”, a public lecture by Dr Troy Vine

16/11/2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
£5

Henri Bortoft’s interpretation of Goethe's approach to science has been influential among practitioners and philosophers of Goethean science alike. Yet Bortoft neither traces the history of the key ideas that underpin his interpretation, nor elaborates on how these ideas relate to Goethe’s own understanding of his scientific method. After reviewing the two key ideas in Bortoft’s interpretation — the concept of “intuitive experience” and the distinction between what Bortoft calls “authentic and counterfeit wholes" — we will consider the history…

Goethe the Naturalist

The Field Centre GL6 0QE United Kingdom + Google Map
£5

Evening Seminar by Dr.Judyth Sassoon, Associate Researcher at the Field Centre, Ruskin Mill Despite being one of the leading literary figures of his time, Goethe believed his greatest accomplishments lay in the natural sciences. He built an entire philosophy of nature on essentially three principles: polarity, intensification ("Steigerung") and compensation. In Goethe’s view, these principles work together to constitute nature’s  “drive”  towards formation and creativity.  This lecture will focus particularly on Goethe’s contribution to the biological sciences, especially his work in plant and…
