About this book

Language: German

The Jena zoologist Ernst Haeckel is one of the most important, but also one of the most controversial natural scientists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. As an enthusiastic supporter of Darwin, he worked on the continuation and popularization of the theory of evolution and thus became a symbolic figure in the worldview struggles of the time.

The correspondence on official activities documents his unique career, during which he devoted his work not only to academic teaching and research but also to the scientific-political implementation of the theory of evolution reformed by Charles Darwin.

This first volume of the official correspondence deals with the course of Haeckel's career, which allowed him to stay in Jena despite a series of lucrative offers from major universities, his work as director of the Zoological Institute he founded, his work in academic offices and committees and as vice-rector of the university. It becomes clear how consistently Haeckel worked to profile his subject in terms of evolutionary theory, to expand the institutional infrastructure of zoology, and to train a large number of students. In the course of his almost five decades of activity, he also became an influential personality in terms of science policy, who had a significant influence on the intellectual profile of the Alma mater Jenensis and shaped it in the long term.

Summary in German:
Der Jenaer Zoologe Ernst Haeckel zählt zu den bedeutendsten, aber auch umstrittensten Naturwissenschaftlern des ausgehenden 19. und beginnenden 20. Jahrhunderts. Als begeisterter Anhänger Darwins arbeitete er an der Weiterführung und Popularisierung der Evolutionstheorie und wurde damit zu einer Symbolfigur in den Weltanschauungskämpfen der Zeit.

Die Korrespondenz zur amtlichen Tätigkeit dokumentiert seine einzigartige Karriere, während der er sein Wirken nicht nur der akademischen Lehre und Forschung, sondern auch der wissenschaftspolitischen Durchsetzung der von Charles Darwin reformierten Evolutionslehre widmete.

Dieser erste Band der Amtskorrespondenz handelt von Haeckels Karriereverlauf, der ihn trotz einer Reihe lukrativer Rufangebote großer Universitäten in Jena bleiben ließ, seiner Tätigkeit als Direktor des von ihm begründeten Zoologischen Instituts, seinem Wirken in akademischen Ämtern und Gremien und als Prorektor der Universität. Es wird deutlich, wie konsequent Haeckel daran arbeitete, sein Fachgebiet im Sinne der Entwicklungslehre zu profilieren, die institutionelle Infrastruktur der Zoologie auszubauen und eine große Anzahl von Schülern heranzubilden. Im Verlauf seiner fast fünf Jahrzehnte umfassenden Tätigkeit wurde er auch in wissenschaftspolitischer Hinsicht zu einer einflussreichen Persönlichkeit, die das geistige Profil der Alma mater Jenensis maßgeblich mitbestimmte und nachhaltig prägte.
