HON 310 - Experiencing Forms and Colors: Goethe’s Approach to Science

Prerequisite, acceptance to the University Honors Program, or consent of instructor. Is it possible to imagine a science that has subjective experience at its core, that acknowledges the primacy of daily experiences as mediated by the senses, all along without diminishing its own rigor, objectivity and predictive power? In this course we will attempt to find answers to these questions by taking Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s scientific work as a starting point. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
