  2. Descartes's Imagination Proportion, Images, and the Activity of Thinking.Dennis L. Sepper - 1996 - University of California Press.
    Renè Descartes is commonly portrayed as a strict rationalist, a philosopher who theorized a radical, unresolvable split between mind and body. In this long-overdue examination of the role of imagination in Descartes's thought, Dennis Sepper reveals a Descartes quite different from the usual dualistic portrayals and offers a critical reconception of the genesis and nature of the philosopher's thought. In a vigorous analysis of the less-known early works, Sepper finds that initially Descartes assigned the imagination a central role in the (...)

    Goethe and the Poetics of Science.Dennis L. Sepper - 2005 - Janus Head 8 (1):207-227.
    In Representative Men, Ralph Waldo Emerson presented Goethe as the prototype of the writer elected by nature, and he identified Goethe’s specific genius as “putting ever a thing for a word.” But Goethe’s talents as writer and poet have long seemed to scientific readers to undermine his efforts to be a scientist, and to talk of his, or any, poetics of science would involve a category mistake. But putting things to words—that is, filling and structuring what we say about the (...)

  7. Goethe Contra Newton: Polemics and the Project for a New Science of Color.Dennis L. Sepper - 2003 - Cambridge University Press.
    This book explains the background and rationale of the German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's notorious attack on Isaac Newton's classic theory of white light and colors. Though the merits of Goethe's color science, as advanced in his massive Zur Farbenlehre, have often been acknowledged, it has been almost unanimously proclaimed invalid as physics. How could Goethe have been so mistaken? In his book, Dennis Sepper shows that the condemnation of Goethe's attacks on Newton has been based on erroneous assumptions (...)

    Newton's Opticks as Classic: On Teaching the Texture of Science.Dennis L. Sepper - 1994 - PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1994:258 - 265.
    Using the example of Newton's Opticks, the author develops the concept of 'classic' as applied to landmark works in the history of the sciences. A discussion of themes drawn from H.-G. Gadamer and T. Kuhn is followed by an introduction of the notions of the texture and contexture of scientific works, conceived as the result of an author's weaving together foreground and background concerns. These notions assist in understanding how certain works can exercise a continuing appeal to both specialists and (...)
