The Metamorphosis of Plants (1790) is undoubtedly Goethe’s best known and most famous scientific work. “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.”
