This introductory five-day course offers the opportunity to engage in the theory and practice of Goethean science. Goethean science recognises that knowledge of the world and knowledge of ourselves cannot be separated because they are codetermining. Through a new way of seeing, Goethean science brings together the observer and the observed.
The course facilitates this process and works with practices that develop the capacity for rigorous observation of phenomena, exact sensory imagination and morphological thinking through collaboration. The course works with the genius loci of the place it is delivered. After an introductory day, one day is dedicated to each kingdom of nature: the inorganic, plant, animal, and the human being.
