Anthropology after Haeckel
The work of the Jena zoologist Haeckel had repercussions not only in biology but in history and anthropology because of effects in general aspects of world view. This approach, directed against the philosophical tradition in the humanities and social sciences, and it was especially virulent when after 1933 in Germany, biology became completely ideological which led to the marginalization of this discipline after 1945. The papers of this book are exemplary studies of important stages of this history of anthropology after Haeckel.
