ChoiceThis latest translation by Kutzinski and Ette brings Humboldt, the man, to a new level of understanding. The authors show Humboldt as a humanist who shows emotions and display strong opinions about certain issues of social importance, such as his disdain for slavery. Furthermore, Humboldt dared to contradict the publications of many of his predecessors and contemporaries who wrote without ever setting foot in the New World. It is precisely this aspect that makes the book a valuable addition to the literature. . . .Highly recommended.
