Summary

English summary: Carl von Linne, the founder of modern natural science and the inventor of the binary nomenclature, counted three humanists as his predecessors: the Strasbourg Carthusian monk and then doctor Otto Brunfels, the preacher, physician, and herbalist Hieronymus Bock from Hornberg in north Alsace, and the Tubingen professor Leonhart Fuchs. In their herbal books one can find the first and decisive steps towards the emancipation of traditional medicinal plant lore and the teaching of botany in order to pursue a scientific discipline. They still used sensations such as color, scent, and taste for the description of plants in their works, a practice later halted by Linne for his taxonomic definition. But because for the perception of color there existed only a limited vocabulary for their disposal, they found new expression in order to meet the need of the infinite variety of shades and hues they observed in nature.In this study, Peter Seidensticker has analyzed in detail the early German books by herbalists in order to show the development of a sophisticated color vocabulary in the German language. German text. German description: Carl von Linne, der Begrunder der modernen Naturwissenschaft und Erfinder der binaren Nomenklatur, rechnete zu seinen Vorgangern drei Humanisten: den Strassburger Karthausermonch und spateren Arzt Otto Brunfels, den Prediger, Arzt und Pflanzenkenner Hieronymus Bock im nordelsassischen Hornberg und den Tubinger Professor Leonhart Fuchs.In ihren Krauterbuchern lassen sich die ersten und entscheidenden Schritte zur Emanzipation der uberlieferten Pflanzenkunde als Arzneilehre zur Botanik als naturwissenschaftlicher Disziplin verfolgen. Denn sie verwenden zwar in ihren Werken noch Sinneseindrucke wie Farbe, Duft, Geschmack zur Beschreibung von Pflanzen - was Linne spater fur die taxonomische Definition ablehnte. Doch da fur die Wahrnehmung von Farbeindrucken nur ein begrenztes Vokabular zur Verfugung stand, fanden sie neue Ausdrucksmoglichkeiten, um der unendlichen Vielfalt der Abtonungen und Schattierungen gerecht zu werden, die sie in der Natur beobachteten.Peter Seidensticker hat die fruhen deutschen Krauterbucher in dieser Studie detailliert ausgewertet, um die Entfaltung eines differenzierten Farben-Wortschatzes in der deutschen Sprache zu zeigen.
