Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Also Known as Goethe
By: Kenneth Siedlecki
Famous Theory
Theory of Colors
Goethe's Theory of Colors was a revolutionary new idea. His theory was about how colors changed on the perspective, object, and lighting, not that color was light striking an object and entering our eyes like Newton said. His theory rivaled Newton's and today's evidence shows that Goethe was closer to correct.
