Goethe’s Theory of Colors

A neat intro film followed by an excellent, more in-depth online lecture by a Swedish architect who knows his stuff. Finally, an overview of Goethe’s science, with Melvyn Bragg, Simon Schaffer (a great historian of science), and Nicholas Boyle (two volumes into a three-volume biography of Goethe) of which color theory was only one element. This book contains a translation of Goethe’s book, complete with reproductions of the colored plates from the original.
