In heavily poetic terms, Goethe offers an involved, holistic approach to these areas of study quite different from our own view of science as a wholly analytic field but, nevertheless, very much in tune with some modern thinking.

Faust became the ur-myth of many figures in the 19th century. In me there are two souls, alas, and their Division tears my life in two.
