Publisher's Summary

Die große Biografie eines Universalgenies. Andrea Wulf vergegenwärtigt das pralle Leben des Universalgenies Alexander von Humboldt und zeigt ihn als interdisziplinären Forscher sui generis.

Natur wird bei Humboldt quasi neu erfunden: In ihrer ganzen Fülle als Lebensnetz, als moderne Ausgestaltung der wirkmächtigen Idee von der "great chain of being". Wulf macht deutlich, worin Humboldt seiner Zeit weit voraus war und unverändert wichtig bleibt: So sah er bereits um 1800 den von Menschen verursachten Klimawandel kommen und gab entscheidende Anstöße zur Theorie der Evolution.

    "Wonderful book"
    Would you listen to Alexander von Humboldt und die Erfindung der Natur again? Why?

    Comprehensive book about the life, ideas and contribution of Alexander von Humboldt to world knowledge. I am impressed by how the author brought all this to life, and how she was able to show the amazing level of energy and motivation Humboldt must have had in order to detect and persue his ambition.
