Goethe's Science Of Living Form The Artistic Stages -by- Nigel Hoffmann. ISBN 9780932776358/0932776353.
Art. The author shows how artistic capacities play an essential role in grasping the dynamic, living qualities of nature; he
describes four stages of scientific enquiry that correspond to the four classical elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire; thus
modern analytical science with its causal thinking can be characterised as an Earth mode of cognition; combining scholarly and
scientific acuity with artistic insight, Hoffman first characterises these four different ways of knowing and then applies them,
leading us ever more deeply into the dynamic qualities of plants, animals and the landscape they live in. Published with the
support of the Waldorf Curriculum Fund and the Foundation for Rudolph Steiner Books. Used softcover book.
