The Founder of Modern Neuroscience: Talk and Book Signing
Emil du Bois-Reymond is the most important forgotten intellectual of the 19th century.
In his own time (1818-96) du Bois-Reymond was celebrated for his research in neuroscience and his provocative speeches on politics and culture. He introduced Darwin to Germany, challenged Goethe, and predicted the disasters of the twentieth century (including genocide, climate change, and what he called the “Americanization” of the world).
The author, Gabriel Finkelstein, teaches history at UC Denver.
