Philip Franses works to balance an individualistic view of science and society with a complementary methodology and practice of the whole. He has taught Goethe’s scientific methodology for the last ten years at Schumacher College in Devon, on the courses of Holistic Science and Ecological Design Thinking, alongside holistic practitioners as Brian Goodwin, Henri Bortoft, Margaret Colquhoun and Craig Holdrege.
