about

The 20th century has brought us to the high point of the scientific-technological age but paradoxically marks the beginning of a critical loss of confidence in the very powers of science. This volume in The German Library, a companion to volume 36 (German Essays on Science in the 19th Centiry, also edited by Wolfgang Schirmacher), represents the sciences in a comprehansive way: Physics, Biochemistry, Ecology, Ethology, Social Sciences, Law and Culture. Writers and scientists represented include: Robert Bosch, Albert Einstein, Otto Hahn, Werner Heisenberg, Konrad Lorenz, Lise Meitner, Max Planck, Georg Simmel, Max Weber, and many others.
Wolfgang Schirmacher teaches at the New School for Social Research.
