Conversations with Goethe

Johann Peter Eckermann was probably Goethe’s most dedicated disciple.

Goethe gave his accord so that Eckermann would write a book about their discussions.

Conversations with Goethe is a master piece. It is not a coincidence that Nietzsche considered this book to be German literature’s foremost work.

There are very few books I can recommend, but this work is the quintessence of Goethe`s lifelong experiences and wisdom.

It really provides you with valuable perennial insight about what Life, Art and Human destiny is about.

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.
