The geometric shapes and natural forms, captured with exceptional precision in Ernst Haeckel's prints, still influence artists and designers to this day. This volume highlights the research and findings of this natural scientist. Powerful modern microscopes have confirmed the accuracy of Haeckel's prints, which even in their day, became world famous. Haeckel's portfolio, first published between 1899 and 1904 in separate installments, is described in the opening essays. The plates illustrate Haeckel's fundamental monistic notion of the "unity of all living things" and the wide variety of forms are executed with utmost delicacy. Incipient microscopic organisms are juxtaposed with highly developed plants and animals. The pages, ordered according to geometric and "constructive" aspects, document the oness of the world in its most diversified forms. This collection of plates was not only well-received by scientists, but by artists and architects as well. Rene Binet, a pioneer of glass and iron constructions, Emile Galle, a renowned Art Nouveau designer, and the photographer Karl Blossfeld all make explicit reference to Haeckel in their work.

Anthropologie nach Haeckel

Der Jenaer Zoologe Ernst Haeckel (1834-1919) hat mit seinem wissenschaftlichen Werk nicht nur fuer die Biologie- und Universitatsgeschichte, sondern auch fuer die Geschichte der Anthropologie des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts zentrale Bedeutung erlangt. Mit Haeckel konstituiert sich eine evolutionar verstandene biologische Anthropologie, die in ihrer Konzeption dann auch weltanschaulich ausholt. Diesen Ansatz einer gegen die philosophische Tradition formulierten biologischen Anthropologie fuehrt sich bis ins 20. Jahrhundert fort, wird im Kontext der aDeutschen Biologieo nach 1933 vollends ideologisiert und fuehrt nach 1945 zur Marginalisierung des Faches. Die Beitrage des vorliegenden Sammelbandes beleuchten exemplarisch wesentliche Stadien dieser Geschichte der Anthropologie nach Haeckel.

These radiant images from the renowned 19th-century biologist and illustrator Ernst Haeckel, featuring marine microorganisms, will enthrall fans of his previous collections and garner renewed attention for Haeckel's unparalleled artistry. From jewelry designers to scientists, graphic artists to naturalists, the range of people inspired by Ernst Haeckel's illustrations continues to grow. Following up on Prestel's books Art Forms in Nature and Art Forms from the Ocean, this new collection features startlingly beautiful images created by Haeckel for the report of the HMS Challenger expedition, which circumnavigated the world from 1872-76, discovering and cataloging nearly 5,000 new species from the depths of Earth's oceans. Full-page reproductions bring these organisms colorfully to life, drawing readers into a world at once hypnotic and highly ordered. Divided into three sections-- Siphonophores, Medusae, and Radiolarians--these illustrations display Haeckel's remarkable artistic skill and understanding of the architecture of organic matter. The authors provide a brief history of the Challenger expedition, background on Haeckel's scientific and artistic accomplishments, as well as informative texts on each group of organisms. A guide to the natural world and an inspiration to artists of every stripe, this collection of Haeckel's work is a fitting tribute to a 19th-century genius.
