Henri Bortoft (1938-2012) was a physicist with an interest in the history of science and continental philosophy. He also authored Taking Appearance Seriously (Floris Books, 2012).
'Henri Bortoft is one of the world's foremost experts on Goethean science.' David Lorimer, Scientific & Medical Network 'This is a gem of a book. Bortoft has made Goethe's thinking available in a particularly clear way.' -- David Peat, author of Blackfoot Physics 'Bortoft shows how the contemporary impulse for participatory science can be realized. What's more, the book is beautifully written.' -- Brian Goodwin, author of Nature's Due and How the Leopard Changed Its Spots
