Andrea Wulf in conversation with Onir Roo

The Invention of Nature

Venue: Biblioteca Campus Centro Histórico - Dirección General de Bibliotecas y Servicios Digitales de Información

The historian Andrea Wulf (Germany/United Kingdom), winner of the Eccles Centre & Hay Festival Writer's Award 2013, wrote the award–winning and international bestseller The Invention of Nature (2015), a biography of Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859). The visionary German naturalist and explorer was daringly adventurous but also created the way we understand nature today. He was the most famous scientist of his age and predicted human-induced climate change. In her book, Wulf follows Humboldt’s footsteps from the highest volcanoes in the Andes to his journey down the Orinoco river. Wulf traces his ideas as they go on to revolutionize and shape science, conservation, nature writing, politics, art and the theory of evolution. In conversation with Onir Roo.
