Review of Metaphysics 42 (4):853-855 (1989)

Goethe's 1810 Zur Farbenlehre has been the subject of an ardent critical debate from the start. For some, the book is not a scientific theory of physics at all ; for others, Goethe's theory is an alternative to Newton's within modern science. Today there are authors who consider Goethe's conception of science a scientific alternative to modern science.
