Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) is recognised as the greatest German literary figure of the modern era.
An innovative writer of European stature in almost every genre from poetry to autobiography, and an early enthusiast for world literature, Goethe was also an impassioned investigator in many areas of natural science. As a self-declared 'citizen of the world', Goethe’s body of work, and openness to the world, continue to inspire and resonate today.
Chaired by Ritchie Robertson, our panel will discuss his life and legacy.
Thinkers for our time is a series re-thinking the life and work of influential figures from across the Academy's disciplines, particularly history and the arts.
