Zur Forschungsaufgabe einer goetheanistischen Biochemie
A truly Goetheanistic understanding of the chemical processes in living organisms is barely developed, but urgently needed. It is proposed that it should, first of all, be based on actual results - not theoretical considerations - of contemporary research in conventional biochemistry and physiology, and how such an understandig can be achieved. As documented by quotation, this proposal is in perfect accordance with Rudolf Steiner‘s general attitude towards scientific empiricism of any kind. But the foundations for the research in question were only laid after his death. To illustrate what is meant, some examples are briefly discussed.
