International Summer University 2018 – July 23 – August 4, 2018
The International Summer University is organized and led by faculty of the Research Institute at the Science Section of the Goetheanum. It is open to anyone interested in a Goethean scientific approach to nature. This year we aspire to cover two topics. During the first week in Dornach, we invite participants to become acquainted with Goethean Science. We will experience (in a nutshell) the three different methods Goethe outlined to study non-living nature, plants and animals, and the humanities. Afternoon excursions will help us access these methods through observation exercises. During the second week in the alpine region of Lötschental, we will explore the evolution of animals and plants in a changing environment – from the first rim of iceless rocks down to the pastures around the farm houses.
