About this Item

Series: Handbucher der Abstammungslehre, II. Band. 8vo. 179 figs., 3 color plates, index. Original steel-gray gilt and black-stamped cloth. Very good +. Plate was a student of Haeckel and a Darwinist. "From 1898 he was titular professor at Berlin, where he was named curator of the Museum fur Meereskunde in 1901; he was also ordinary professor at the Landwirtschafiliche Hochschule. Plate's museum experience especially impressed Haeckel, whom he succeeded in 1909 as professor of zoology and director of the Phyletische Museum at Jena. Haeckel, who had strongly favored Plate's appointment, expected to have his wishes followed; but bitter dissension soon broke out between the two. No doubt there were contributing factors in both personalities, but the former pupil and protege did his best to derogate Haeckel and to make his position untenable. Plate was a founder and the coeditor for biology of the Archiv fur Rassen- und Gesellschaftsbiologie from its establishment in 1904. The publication was dedicated to the study of the laws of variability and inheritance, of the development of races, and the relation of the family, society, and the state to "racial and social hygiene," a goal perhaps initially eugenic but later having increasingly political application. Plate's views on zoological matters became entwined with his political opinions; and for years he digressed freely during his biological lectures to express his convictions as an avowed member of the Right, as a Pan-Germanist, and as an anti-Semite. He expounded his ideas on the labor movement and was a declared pro-Fascist long before 1933. Plate, competent and painstaking in his zoological investigations, was a member of the latter group although he was a staunch Darwinist. He examined the theory of natural selection as it might apply to numerous specific instances in which evolutionary changes were discernible." " DSB, (Gloria Robinson). Bookseller Inventory # BL4313
