Said@Duke: Andrea Wulf on Naturalist Alexander von Humboldt

Part of the Said@Duke: 2019-2020 Series
Said@Duke: Humboldt said ... that nature was in a mysterious communication with our inner feelings. Maybe now ... in the same year when we celebrate his 250th birthday, we can take some inspiration from him.” -- Andre Wulf
