Humboldt’s revolutionary view of the Earth – a chance for the Anthropocene
Alexander von Humboldt was a revolutionary visionary who saw the Earth and its landscapes as a system of interconnected components in space and time. Such a way of seeing is more urgent than ever if we are to make the impending sustainability transformations we need. Humboldt’s new view of the Earth provided a pioneering “Humboldt programme for the Anthropocene”.
