The first two volumes of the series provide a comprehensive bibliography of primary and secondary literature on Goethe's scientific writings and of the original scientific work that constitutes the alternative paradigm. The unannotated entries are numbered within chapters covering a year each. The 11 indices refer to the year and entry number. An appendix lists entries in Richter's and Schmid's bibliographies not included. Volume three will argue for Goethe's significance in the history of science and narrate the history of the Goethean tradition. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
