What is an “Electron“? Zoom presentation by Johannes Kühl, Goetheanum Natural Science Section of the Free School of Spiritual Science.

If we hear the question „What is an electron?” most of us will think of a small particle with negative electric charge – and so on. It’s interesting though that for the physicist it is much more difficult to answer the question what it really is. – For a scientist with anthroposophical interest it is then a challenge to find out how to approach this question: Is there a Goetheanistic approach? And an anthroposophic approach? – In this lecture we will try to explore this question, probably without a definite answer.

The event is organized by the program committee of the Chicago Rudolf Steiner Branch.

Johannes Kühl, born 1953 in Germany, studied physics in Hamburg and Göttingen. After one year of research at the science section at the Goetheanum he taught physics, chemistry and mathematics at the Waldorf school Stuttgart Uhlandshöhe. From 1996 to 2020 he was the leader of the science section at the Goetheanum and a member of the collegium of the school of spiritual science where he still works. His research interests are goetheanistic physics, the understanding of quantum physics, the relation of technology and human culture – and Anthroposophy.
