We were delighted to host the Goethean Science gathering over a weekend here at Kindrogan Somerville School; there is a growing interest in this phenomenological approach in Scotland.

Goethean science questions the objectivity of the observer in the discovery of knowledge. Different from the mechanistic scientific method we are familiar with, it seeks to acknowledge and include the observer’s subjectivity as a valid path to discovery. Goethean science proposes that subjective experience manifested as intuition, imagination and inspiration are just as real as physical reality.
