Daniel | 2 comments Goethe was relatively wealthy and was good friends with the ruler. His writings were a combination of the old German myths and what the people in power wanted the German people to believe. He wasn't much of a scientist.

Goethe wrote, in one of his many books, that the eye works by putting out feelers. One of his good friends had to tell him NO. Goethe didn't even know that Newton had already explained light.
