About this Item

First Separate Edition. 23 pp. Bound in a recent folder. Small ink blotch on vertical edge of pages. Slight vertical crease. Else Very Good. 'Hermann von Helmholtz was a leading figure of nineteenth-century European intellectual life, remarkable even among the many scientists of the period for the range and depth of his interests. A pioneer of physiology and physics, he was also deeply concerned with the implications of science for philosophy and culture. From the 1850s to the 1890s, Helmholtz delivered more than two dozen popular lectures, seeking to educate the public and to enlighten the leaders of European society and governments about the potential benefits of science and technology to a developing modern society' (listing on the University of Chicago Web site for Helmholtz, Hermann von, Science and Culture: Popular and Philosophical Essays, edited by David Cahan, 1995; the essay offered here is not reprinted in this volume).
