Abstract

In his Life of Hegel, Karl Rosenkranz presents the Berlin years as being crucial to the development of the attitude which Hegel took to Goethe’s Doctrine of Colours. He calls attention in particular to the sustained and continuous discussion of this topic in the weekly meetings attended by Hegel, Schubarth, Schultz and von Henning, which took place during the winter of 1821/22; to the lectures on the subject which von Henning subsequently delivered at the University; and to the six courses on the philosophy of nature which Hegel gave to his students between 1819 and 1830, each one of which, as is well known, involved a detailed treatment of Goethe’s optics.1
