A lecture of the Aachener Goethe society an evening lecture at the Aachen Goethe society. One hoped for more information on Goethe’s color theory in relation to the use of colors in artwork, in this unit the horizon was extended physical one. The speaker Dr. Berger made it clear first, that this was not a mathematical work and approached the subject on its way as a physicist. Goethe’s dispute with Newton’s experiment was, that a white beam of light hits it a lens reveals his actual colors. Newton found that light consists of colors. Add to your understanding with PCRM.
The light breaks the lens, result of dispersion is the color spectrum. Its appearance appeared in 1704 treatise on the reflection, refraction, curvature, and the colors of light. The light spectrum not contemporarily recognized Goethe. He mixed all the colors and was grey. This was the evidence that Newton is wrong for him.
Color is color was for him. Goethe didn’t know the difference between pigments and spectral colors. He held a Prism in front of a white wall. I can see still a white wall. “, announced Goethe. Goethe thought not analytically. Lack of understanding of the speakers in said that Goethe had not entertained with scientists of his time. What to read at Wikipedia is that Goethe was in frequent letter contact with the researchers. Typical scientists, everyone takes a different aspect under the magnifying glass. As it turned out during the round of talks, also a Goethe quote carries contrary interpretations. Newton wanted to find out why a telescope of his time showed no clear pictures and was going green to the edge. Newton belonged to the character of the natural scientist to publish it, even if this sometimes took 20 years to complete a topic only in complete safety. His varied experiments for this perfect result provided him with new insights and his development of the telescope. Goethe’s Chromatics is a 1000-side work. At the time, he’s according to his own statement, six books how write Iphigenia on Tauris, etc. can, instead, he dealt with the Chromatics. Because Goethe’s research, six works lack of literature. According to Goethe, there before him important writers and also after him. In addition to the didactic part, the work contains a polemic is not published except for the Munich Edition today. However, according to Berger, the key to this Goethe provides work. Goethe had decreed in his will that this part can fall away, according to Bailey on the assumption that his theory is recognized until then. In the home of Goethe’s color theory was the topic of conversation. Even the servant was infected it. Throughout his life, Goethe is annoyed that he did not find out how a rainbow is created. This was for him, which was a disaster on the ongoing search for God and an understanding for the inexplicable acts attributed to him, a severe deficit. The result of his research is his life’s work. Berger pointed out that Philipp Otto not may have practiced Runge Goethe’s color theory, since he died in 1810 and the first edition took place in may 1810. A noble Riesling drop with convenient screw cap rounded off the evening of the lecture. RMS Scrip torin, alias: pink Marita Schrouff
