Ross Rentea, MD, from the Lili Kolisko Institute will discuss a Goetheanistic View of the Plant World. The concept of metamorphosis was introduced by the German scientist and poet Goethe (19th century) and then greatly expanded by Rudolf Steiner, PhD (20th century). New observations and subsequent experimentations have elucidated more of the practical importance of this discovery for the better understanding of the laws of the organic world as well as for the production of new herbal remedies.
