Synopsis

One hundred years after the birth of Anton Dohrn, his biography was compiled by Theodor Heuss, first president of the Federal Republic of Germany and a friend of the Dohrn family. Heuss not only conveys the family history of this great scientist, but also interweaves scientific and cultural history into his narrative. As a result a fascinating yet true story which provides insight into the cultural, political and scientific life in both Germany and Italy at the turn of the century has been created. "Anton Dohrn (1840-1909) was founder of the once world-famous zoological station at Naples, 'a permanent international congress of zoologists' ...written as a classic 'life and letters', A Life for Science...gives an excellent description of an interesting scientist in touch with the leading biologists of his time." (Arch. of Natural History)
