More > “always approximately sonata ghost,” whose “anomaly background noise” and “rapacious necromancy” conspire to produce a truly encyclopedic mosaic-poem that meditates on the texture of digital daily life today. Here the “event” is seen to “stray,” not on the broken but the “woken” road—and our fellow citizens boast, not alter egos, but “altertransitors” that “beat cheer” into their “entropy packet.” A very exciting poetic sequence, whose language games will make you sit up and laugh—as well as cry."

Published in... More > 1810, it contains detailed descriptions of phenomena such as coloured shadows, refraction, and chromatic aberration. Goethe's book provides a catalogue of how colour is perceived in a wide variety of circumstances, and considers Isaac Newton's observations to be special cases. Unlike Newton, Goethe's concern was not so much with the analytic treatment of colour, as with the qualities of how phenomena are perceived. Philosophers have come to understand the distinction between the optical spectrum, as observed by Newton, and the phenomenon of human colour perception as presented by Goethe—a subject analyzed at length by Wittgenstein in his exegesis of Goethe in Remarks on Colour.< Less
