The enormous popularity that characterised Alexander von Humboldt beyond his death was due not least to the work to which he devoted himself from 1834 and in the two and a half decades that remained to him: an overall view of scientific exploration of the world, published from 1845 under the title Kosmos. In this way, he succeeded in realising the vision that had been in his mind from the very beginning of his work as a natural scientist and that guided his actions in all important decision-making situations.
