New Book by Andreas Daum

Published February 26, 2019

In February 2019, Professor Andreas Daum published a biography of the naturalist Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859), an intellectual globalizer who is regarded as one of the last universal scholars.  Daum’s book provides an overview of the transatlantic life, widespread oeuvre and networks of Humboldt.  Today Humboldt enjoys renewed appreciation for his comparative views on the natural environments, culture and history of the various spaces in Europe, the Americas and Asia he visited (C. H. Beck Publishers, Munich).
