In Holonomics we guide the reader through some of the fundamental ‘experiments’ that Goethe carried our using a glass prism. In actually doing the experiments, the reader begins to gain experiential knowledge of what is meant by a phenomenon, and how for example different colours by Goethe were thought of as belonging together.
In 1951, Heinrich O. Proskauer first published his wonderful book The Rediscover of Color which was written to take readers step-by-step through all of Goethe’s experiments. The book came with its own small prism, and sixteen colour cards (printed on both sides) which allowed readers to follow the steps that Goethe described in The Theory of Colours.
Unfortunately Proskauer’s book is no longer in print, and secondhand copies are extremely expensive. These slides you are about to see replicate the colour experiments from The Rediscovery of Color, allowing you to explore further Goethe’s theory which we describe in Holonomics, along with instructions on how to use the prism.
