The Metamorphosis of Plants (1790) is undoubtedly Goethe’s best known and most famous scientific work. In 123 short paragraphs the great German poet, philosopher and scientist accompanies the plant through all its outward transformations, from its development of a seed to its reformation into a seed. “If we observe all forms, especially the organic forms, we find that nothing is permanent, nothing is at rest, nothing concluded, but, on the contrary, that all is in continuous fluctuating movement. Nothing is held fast in experience for a single moment.”“Nature is forever changing and in her there is nothing standing still a single moment.” In the multitude of plant forms Goethe seeks the form of the archetypal plant.
