THE INVENTION OF NATURE with Andrea Wulf

Presented by the Knox Museum

In her latest work, THE INVENTION OF NATURE, Andrea Wulf reveals how forgotten visionary Alexander Humboldt inspired Darwin, Goethe, Wordsworth, John Muir, Thomas Jefferson, and Thoreau; first introduced notions of environmentalism and climate change into the lexicon; and “revolutionized the way we see the natural world.”

“Andrea Wulf is a writer of rare sensibilities and passionate fascinations. I always trust her to take me on unforgettable journeys… Her work is wonderful, her language sublime, her intelligence unflagging.”

       —Elizabeth Gilbert, bestselling author of The Signature of All Things and Eat, Pray, Love
