About this Item

Octavo. [4], 110pp. Cloth spine over marbled paper covered boards. Decorative endpapers. Scarce and fascinating work on the lecture given by father Erich Wasmann during the Berlin discussion of the problem of evolution, in February 1907. Wasmann was a supporter of evolution, although he did not accept the productivity of natural selection, the evolution of humans from other animals, or universal common descent of all life. Rather, he believed that common ancestry was restricted to what he called "natural species" which were generally larger groups than species (which he called "systematic species"), genera, or even families. His natural species he identified with the "paleontological species" of Melchior Neumayr. Wasmann also was involved in a long-running dispute with Ernst Haeckel over Monism. Some age wear on binding with corners heavily rubbed and minor age-toning on covers. Endpapers and paper margin slightly age-toned. Text in German, gothic script. Binding in overall good-, interior in very good condition. About the author: R. Joseph Wohlgemuth (1867-1942), rabbi, educator, and theologian, was born in Memel, as a child moved with his family to Hamburg, where his grandfather R. Isaiah Wohlgemuth became stipendiary rabbi (Klausrabbiner). R. Wohlgemuth studied at the Berlin Rabbinical Seminary and at the university, teaching at the same time and for many years afterward at the Adass Yisroel religious school. In 1895 he was appointed tutor and lecturer in religious philosophy, homiletics, and practical halakhah at the seminary, where he exercised considerable influence on several generations of students for the Orthodox rabbinate. In 1932 broken health forced him to retire to a sanatorium in Frankfort. Bookseller Inventory # 26628
