    thank you! haha well, to be honest, I'm not completely sure. I believe it may be German? I know some of the words are German, but I can't make out enough to say what it actually means.
    sorry, haha not much help there.

    yeah, they are german (:
    from yellow to orange, outer circle: mind (Verstand) - sensuality (Sinnlichkeit) - fantasy (Phantasie) - reason (Vernunft)
    and inner circle: good (gut) - useful (nützlich) - mean (gemein) - ? can't read that - beautiful (schön) - noble (edel)

    I'm just reading up, this is indeed German. It is a work by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and it is called "Farbenkreis" which means "Color circle" from 1809. The description reads as follows. "Color circle to symbolize the human spirit and soul-life". I have this one my stream too in the "Theory of colour" album.. Hopefully this was helpful.

    Inner circle list..

    yellow gut = good
    red edel = generous/noble
    upper red = schoen = beautiful/nice
    etc..

    Outer circle list..

    yellow Verstand = mind
    blue Sinnlichkeit = sensuality
    dark blue/red Phantasie = fantasy
    red Vernunft = reason
    etc
