Workshop:

On the Generalization of Newton's Experimentum Crucis

How would Goethe have experimented today? – Within the framework of the workshop new experimental results will be presented. These arise when one asks as to the presentability of the epistemological and experimental ideas of Goethe with means of modern optics. The optical conditions will be shown under which complementary-colored spectra may simultaneously be realized and, using this assumption, how an inverted form of Newton's Experimentum Crucis becomes possible. It is the aim of the workshop to study these experiments in detail and to ask about their physical, historical and epistemological significance.
