Ernst Mayr Das ist Biologie Die Wissenschaft des Lebens

Lebewesen lassen sich nicht auf die Gesetze der Physik und Chemie reduzieren; sie müssen auf jeder Stufe ihrer Organisation verstanden werden.

Overview

Ernst Mayr Das ist Biologie Die Wissenschaft des Lebens

Lebewesen lassen sich nicht auf die Gesetze der Physik und Chemie reduzieren; sie müssen auf jeder Stufe ihrer Organisation verstanden werden. Ernst Mayr veranschaulicht, warum der zweifellos bei vielen Fragestellungen sehr erfolgreiche Reduktionismus letztlich nicht hinreichen kann, die natürliche Welt in ihrer immensen Komplexität zu erklären.
Die Biologie ist nicht zuletzt eine historische Wissenschaft, und Das ist Biologie? läßt sich auch als eine "Lebensgeschichte" dieser Disziplin lesen. Der Bogen spannt sich von den Wurzeln der Naturforschung in den Werken des Aristoteles über die Revolution, welche die Biologie durch Darwin erfuhr, bis hin zu den spektakulären Fortschritten durch den breiten Einzug molekularer Ansätze. Ernst Mayrs Buch vermittelt ein faszinierendes Bild von der Bedeutung und vom Reichtum der Biologie.

Meet the Author

Ernst Mayr ist Professor emeritus für Zoologie an der Harvard University (Alexander-Agassiz-Lehrstuhl). Der 93jährige Wissenschaftler, der in Deutschland geboren und aufgewachsen ist, zählt zu den bedeutendsten Biologen der Welt und hat insbesondere der Evolutionsbiologie zahlreiche Impulse verschafft. Nach dem Studium der Medizin, Biologie und Philosophie in Greifswald und Berlin sowie mehreren langen Forschungsreisen wurde er 1932 Kustos am American Museum of Natural History in New York. 1953 nahm er dann einen Ruf an die Harvard University an, der er bis zu seiner Emeritierung 1975 (und danach) treu blieb. Mayr ist Autor und Herausgeber von 18 Büchern, darunter so einflußreichen Werken wie Systematik und der Ursprung der Arten (1942), Artbegriff und Evolution (1963), Grundlagen der zoologischen Systematik (1969), Evolution und die Vielfalt des Lebens (1976) und Die Entwicklung der biologischen Gedankenwelt (1982).
