Worldviews

Gems

A quote by Friedrich Wilhelm Heinrich Alexander von Humboldt (14 September 1769 – 6 May 1859).

The most dangerous worldviews are the worldviews of those
who have never viewed the world.”

Humboldt was a Prussian polymath, geographer, naturalist, explorer, and influential proponent of Romantic philosophy and science. His quantitative work on botanical geography laid the foundation for the field of biogeography. Humboldt’s advocacy of long-term systematic geophysical measurement laid the foundation for modern geomagnetic and meteorological monitoring.
