Alexander von Humboldt und die Erfindung der Natur

Was hat Alexander von Humboldt, der vor mehr als 150 Jahren starb, mit Klimawandel und Nachhaltigkeit zu tun? Der Naturforscher und Universalgelehrte, nach dem nicht nur unzählige Straßen, Pflanzen und sogar ein »Mare« auf dem Mond benannt sind, hat wie kein anderer Wissenschaftler unser Verständnis von Natur als lebendigem Ganzen, als Kosmos, in dem vom Winzigsten bis zum Größten alles miteinander verbunden ist und dessen untrennbarer Teil wir sind, geprägt. Die Historikerin Andrea Wulf stellt in ihrem vielfach preisgekrönten – so auch mit dem Bayerischen Buchpreis 2016 – Buch Humboldts Erfindung der Natur, die er radikal neu dachte, ins Zentrum ihrer Erkundungsreise durch sein Leben und Werk. Sie folgt den Spuren des begnadeten Netzwerkers und zeigt, dass unser heutiges Wissen um die Verwundbarkeit der Erde in Humboldts Überzeugungen verwurzelt ist. Ihm heute wieder zu begegnen, mahnt uns, seine Erkenntnisse endlich zum Maßstab unseres Handelns zu machen – um unser aller Überleben willen.

“A gripping, atavistic supernatural thriller…sexy, sensuous, and terrifying.”—Bram Stoker Award-winning author Christopher Golden Madeline Keye’s gift—to touch someone and see flashes of the past—has helped her track missing people. It’s also set her apart from her family and most of the people in her hometown. So Madeline, already alone, turns to the wilderness for sanctuary. In the backcountry of Glacier National Park, she has always found peace and solace, away from all human contact. Until the day she is caught in a flash-flood and almost dies. Rescued by a handsome stranger, she should feel safe one again. But she doesn’t. She can’t shake the feeling of being watched…of being hunted. Something is out there in the shadows. Something...hungry. Something...not human. And it wants Madeline.
