Their stay in Ecuador was marked by the ascent of Pichincha and their climb of Chimborazo, where Humboldt and his party reached an altitude of 19,286 feet (5,878 m). This was a world record at the time, but 1000 feet short of the summit. Humboldt's journey concluded with an expedition to the sources of the Amazon en route for Lima, Peru. In 1869, the 100th year of his birth, Humboldt's fame was so great that cities all over America celebrated his birth with large festivals. In New York City, a bust of his head was unveiled in Central Park.

[...]“ At Callao, the main port for Peru, Humboldt observed the transit of Mercury on 9 November and studied the fertilizing properties of guano, rich in nitrogen, the subsequent introduction of which into Europe was due mainly to his writings. Alexander von Humboldt published prolifically throughout his life. Many works were published originally in French or German, then translated to other languages, sometimes with competing translation editions. Humboldt himself did not keep track of all the various editions. He wrote specialized works on particular topics of botany, zoology, astronomy, mineralogy, among others, but he also wrote general works that attracted a wide readership, especially his Personal Narrative of Travels to the Equinoctial Regions of the New Continent during the years 1799–1804 His Political Essay on the Kingdom of New Spain was widely read in Mexico itself, the United States, as well as in Europe.
Humboltd, crítico del sistema esclavista, se refirió a esta explotación inhumana en muchas oportunidades; una de ellas es la carta que dirigiera el 20 de junio de 1804 a William Thornton. During Humboldt's time in Paris, he met in 1818 the young and brilliant Peruvian student of the Royal Mining School of Paris, Mariano Eduardo de Rivero y Ustariz. Subsequently, Humboldt acted as a mentor of the career of this promising Peruvian scientist. Another recipient of Humboldt's aid was Louis Agassiz (1807–1873), who was directly aided with needed cash from Humboldt, assistance in securing an academic position, and help with getting his research on zoology published. Agassiz sent him copies of his publications and went on to gain considerable scientific recognition as a professor at Harvard. Agassiz delivered an address to the Boston Society of Natural History in 1869, on the centenary of his patron's birth. When Humboldt was an elderly man, he aided another young scholar, Gotthold Eisenstein, a brilliant, young, Jewish mathematician in Berlin, for whom he obtained a small crown pension and whom he nominated for the Academy of Science. When Humboldt requested authorization from the crown to travel to Spanish America, most importantly, with his own financing, it was given positive response. Spain under the Habsburg monarchy had guarded its realms against foreigner travelers and intruders. The Bourbon monarch was open to Humboldt's proposal. Spanish Foreign Minister Don Mariano Luis de Urquijo received the formal proposal and Humboldt was presented to the monarch in March 1799. Humboldt was granted access to crown officials and written documentation on Spain's empire. With Humboldt's experience working for the absolutist Prussian monarchy as a government mining official, Humboldt had both the academic training and experience of working well within a bureaucratic structure. En 1827 regresó a Berlín, fue nombrado chambelán del rey Federico Guillermo III de Prusia y se convirtió en uno de sus principales consejeros, por lo que realizó numerosas misiones diplomáticas por encargo imperial. Caldas se encontró en Quito con Humboldt, y se sumó a algunos de sus recorridos con la esperanza de formar parte del resto de la expedición del alemán. No obstante, Humboldt —quien como se sabe se costeaba todos sus gastos— no quiso que continuara en la expedición hacia el Perú y México, lo que al parecer molestó a Caldas. Este acusó luego a Humboldt de visitar casas en Quito en donde «el amor impuro rige», y de poner sus pasiones por encima de los nobles propósitos de la ciencia: «se apodera esta pasión vergonzosa de su corazón y ciega a este joven sabio hasta un punto que no se puede creer», dijo en una carta a José Celestino Mutis. Calificó a Montúfar como un «Adonis ignorante, sin principios y disipado», y llegó a insinuar que hubo una relación sexual entre ellos al afirmar que «Venus se ha mudado de Chipre a Quito».
Over the years other learned societies in the U.S. elected him a member, including the American Antiquarian Society (Worcester, MA) in 1816; the Linnean Society of London in 1818; the New York Historical Society in 1820; a Foreign Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1822.; the American Ethnological Society (New York) in 1843; and the American Geographical and Statistical Society, (New York) in 1856. He was elected a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in 1810. The Royal Society, whose president Sir Joseph Banks had aided Humboldt as a young man, now welcomed him as a foreign member. De hecho, el Mapa de la Nueva España, que a la postre apareció publicado en su Ensayo político de la Nueva España (1811), era conocido y utilizado por el ejército de los Estados Unidos con miras a la guerra contra México.[cita requerida]

Friedrich Wilhelm Heinrich Alexander Freiherr von Humboldt (trợ giúp · thông tin) (14 tháng 9 năm 1769 - 6 tháng 5 năm 1859), thường được biết đến với tên Alexander von Humboldt là một nhà khoa học và nhà thám hiểm nổi tiếng của Vương quốc Phổ. Ông là em trai của Wilhelm von Humboldt, bộ trưởng nội các Vương quốc Phổ và là nhà. A number of nineteenth-century artists traveled to Latin America, following in the footsteps of Humboldt, painting landscapes and scenes of everyday life. Johann Moritz Rugendas, Ferdinand Bellermann, and Eduard Hildebrandt were three important European painters. Frederic Edwin Church was the most famous landscape painter in the U.S. in the nineteenth century. His paintings of Andean volcanoes that Humboldt climbed helped make Church's reputation. His 5 foot by 10 foot painting entitled The Heart of the Andes "caused a sensation" when it was completed. Church had hoped to ship the painting to Berlin to show the painting to Humboldt, but Humboldt died a few days after Church's letter was written. Church painted Cotopaxi three times, twice in 1855 and then in 1859 in eruption.

El remate a la gran expedición americana fue una visita a los Estados Unidos, donde Humboldt ya era considerado como investigador y científico. Su visita la aprovechó el presidente Thomas Jefferson, quien lo tuvo tres semanas como «huésped» en Washington DC y Filadelfia. Además de sondear las ideas de su huésped acerca de los límites de estadounidenses con relación a los ríos Sabina o Grande y un canal interoceánico, Jefferson ordenó al secretario del Tesoro, Albert Gallatin, hacer copias de los mapas y otros materiales del científico. En agosto de 1804 —después de cinco años de viaje— Alexander de Humboldt regresa con su material científico a París y es recibido y celebrado por diez mil personas. Entusiasmó y cautivó a la gente con su curiosidad y su saber. El tiempo siguiente lo pasa en París analizando sus resultados, en 1807 se muda a esta ciudad. Luego apoya a varios científicos y artistas (entre ellos el matemático Karl-Friedrich Gauss y el músico Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy), y aconseja al joven Werner von Siemens con la fundación de su empresa. Los planes para su “segunda vocación en la vida”, un viaje de investigación a Asia, son obstaculizados una y otra vez. By his delineation (in 1817) of isothermal lines, he at once suggested the idea and devised the means of comparing the climatic conditions of various countries. He first investigated the rate of decrease in mean temperature with the increase in elevation above sea level, and afforded, by his inquiries regarding the origin of tropical storms, the earliest clue to the detection of the more complicated law governing atmospheric disturbances in higher latitudes. This was a major contribution to climatology. Humboldt visited the mission at Caripe and explored the Guácharo cavern, where he found the oilbird, which he was to make known to science as Steatornis caripensis. Also described the Guanoco asphalt lake as "The spring of the good priest" ("Quelle des guten Priesters"). Returning to Cumaná, Humboldt observed, on the night of 11–12 November, a remarkable meteor shower (the Leonids). He proceeded with Bonpland to Caracas where he climbed the Avila mount with the young poet Andrés Bello, the former tutor of Simón Bolívar, who later became the leader of independence in northern South America. Humboldt met the Venezuelan Bolívar himself in 1804 in Paris and spent time with him in Rome. The documentary record does not support the supposition that Humboldt inspired Bolívar to participate in the struggle for independence, but it does indicate Bolívar's admiration for Humboldt's production of new knowledge on Spanish America.

In one note, he placed Humboldt first on the "list of American travellers". Darwin's work was influenced by Humboldt's writing style as well. Darwin's sister remarked to him "you had, probably from reading so much of Humboldt, got his phraseology and the kind of flower French expressions he uses".

Jefferson was unsure of where the border of the newly-purchased Louisiana was precisely, and Humboldt wrote him a two-page report on the matter. Jefferson would later refer to Humboldt as "the most scientific man of the age". Albert Gallatin, Secretary of the Treasury, said of Humboldt "I was delighted and swallowed more information of various kinds in less than two hours than I had for two years past in all I had read or heard." Gallatin, in turn, supplied Humboldt with information he sought on the United States. Sitz der Stiftung ist Bonn-Bad Godesberg.

Humboldt's father, Alexander Georg von Humboldt, belonged to a prominent Pomeranian family. Although not one of the titled gentry, he was a major in the Prussian Army, who had served with the Duke of Brunswick. At age 42, Alexander Georg was rewarded for his services in the Seven Years' War with the post of royal chamberlain. He profited from the contract to lease state lotteries and tobacco sales. He first married the daughter of Prussian General Adjutant Schweder. In 1766, Alexander Georg married Maria Elisabeth Colomb, a well-educated woman and widow of Baron Hollwede, with whom she had a son. Alexander Georg and Maria Elisabeth had three children, a daughter, who died young, and then two sons, Wilhelm and Alexander. Her first-born son, Wilhelm and Alexander's half-brother, was something of a ne'er do well, not often mentioned in the family history. After arriving in Washington D.C, Humboldt held numerous intense discussions with Jefferson on both scientific matters and also his year-long stay in New Spain. Jefferson had only recently concluded the Louisiana Purchase, which now placed New Spain on the southwest border of the United States. The Spanish minister in Washington, D.C. had declined to furnish the U.S. government with information about Spanish territories, and access to the territories was strictly controlled. Humboldt was able to supply Jefferson with the latest information on the population, trade agriculture and military of New Spain. This information would later be the basis for his Essay on the Political Kingdom of New Spain (1810).

A traveling companion in the Americas for five years was Aimé Bonpland, and in Quito in 1802 he met the Ecuadorian aristocrat Don Carlos Montúfar, who traveled with Humboldt to Europe and lived with him. In France, Humboldt traveled and lived with the physicist and balloonist Joseph Louis Gay Lussac. Later he had a deep friendship with the married French astronomer François Arago, whom he met daily for 15 years. Four years before his death, Humboldt executed a deed of gift transferring his entire estate to Seifert, who had by then married and set up a household near Humboldt's apartment. Humboldt had become godfather to his daughter. The scale of the bequest has always drawn speculation, especially as Seifert was some thirty years younger, and introducing lower class partners into households under the guise of servants was then a common practice. Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung Awardees and Fellows of Hans-Joachim Freund. Hans-Joachim Freun Hacia el otoño de 1829, por encargo del zar Nicolás I, efectuó un viaje a los Urales, con el objeto que hallar nuevos yacimientos de platino, así como de oro y de otros minerales. En la primavera de 1829, partió en su tarea geológica, hallando además de tales minerales, diamantes. Acto seguido se dirigió a Tobolsk para finalmente arribar al río Obi. Desde allí visitó el macizo del Altái y luego Dzhungaria (frontera con China). A su retorno se dirigió hacia Astracán en el mar Caspio. Finalmente, en noviembre de 1829 arribó a San Petersburgo, donde fue recibido con honores por la nobleza, y pronunció un discurso en la Academia Imperial de Ciencias, resaltando la importancia de la colaboración científica internacional. Durante los últimos veinticinco años de su vida, se concentró principalmente en la redacción de Cosmos, monumental visión global de la estructura del universo. Humboldt es considerado uno de los últimos ilustrados. Humboldt graduated from the Freiberg School of Mines in 1792 and was appointed to a Prussian government position in the Department of Mines as an inspector in Bayreuth and the Fichtel mountains. Humboldt was excellent at his job, with production of gold ore in his first year outstripping the previous eight years. During his period as a mine inspector, Humboldt demonstrated his deep concern for the men laboring in the mines. He opened a free school for miners, paid for out of his own pocket, which became an unchartered government training school for labor. He also sought to establish an emergency relief fund for miners, aiding them following accidents.

Humboldt carried on correspondence with many contemporaries and two volumes of letters to Karl August Varnhagen von Ense have been published. Scholars have speculated about the reasons for Humboldt's declining renown among the public. Sandra Nichols has argued that there are three reasons for this. First, a trend towards specialization in scholarship. Humboldt was a generalist who connected many disciplines in his work. Today, academics have become more and more focused on narrow fields of work. Humboldt combined ecology, geography and even social sciences. Second, a change in writing style. Humboldt's works, which were considered essential to a library in 1869, had flowery prose that fell out of fashion. One critic said they had a "laborious picturesqueness". Humboldt himself said that, "If I only knew how to describe adequately how and what I felt, I might, after this long journey of mine, really be able to give happiness to people. The disjointed life I lead makes me hardly certain of my way of writing". Third, a rising anti-German sentiment in the late 1800s and the early 1900s due to heavy German immigration to the United States and later World War 1. On the eve of the 1959 hundredth anniversary of the death of Humboldt, the government of West Germany planned significant celebrations in conjunction with nations that Humboldt visited. Arriving in Philadelphia, which was a center of learning in the U.S., Humboldt met with some of the major scientific figures of the era, including chemist and anatomist Caspar Wistar, who pushed for compulsory smallpox vaccination, and botanist Benjamin Smith Barton, as well as physician Benjamin Rush, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, who wished to hear about cinchona bark from a South American tree, which cured fevers. Humboldt later published a treatise in English on cinchona. Registró en su obra Ensayo Político sobre el Reino de la Nueva España que en esta provincia se hablan tres lenguas enteramente distintas; el mexicano (náhuatl), el totonaco y el tlapaneco. La primera es propia de los habitantes de La Puebla, de Cholula y de Tlaxcala; la segunda de los de Zacatlán y la tercera se conserva en las inmediaciones de Tlapa.
La segunda obra de gran importancia y relevancia es Kosmos (Cosmos). Iniciada su redacción cuando Humboldt tenía 76 años de edad, es una obra que constituirá la coronación de su vida. Los primeros dos capítulos fueron publicados y básicamente elaborados entre los años 1845 y 1847. La idea de este trabajo deriva del deseo de comunicar una descripción gráfica del mundo físico que él había estudiado y observado durante casi medio siglo. Esta idea toma forma, por primera vez, después de una serie de conferencias dictadas por él en la Universidad de Berlín en el invierno de 1827–1828. , the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety as well as other national and international partners Alexander Von Humboldt II is a class A 3 masted barque.

Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung. The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation is a non-profit foundation established by the Federal Republic of Germany for the promotion of international research cooperation. It enables highly qualified scholars not resident in Germany to spend extended periods of research in Germany and promotes the ensuing academic. The Russian Foreign Minister, Count Georg von Cancrin contacted Humboldt about whether a platinum-based currency was possible in Russia and invited him to visit the Ural Mountains. Humboldt was not encouraging about a platinum-based currency, when silver was the standard as a world currency. But the invitation to visit the Urals was intriguing, especially since Humboldt had long dreamed of going to Asia. He had wanted to travel to India and made considerable efforts to persuade the British East India Company to authorize a trip, but those efforts were fruitless. One of his most widely read publications resulting from his travels and investigations in Spanish America was the Essai politique sur le royaum de la Nouvelle Espagne, quickly translated to English as Political Essay on the Kingdom of New Spain (1811). This treatise was the result of Humboldt's own investigations as well as the generosity of Spanish colonial officials for statistical data. Humboldt often returned to Jena in the years that followed. Goethe remarked about Humboldt to friends that he had never met anyone so versatile. Humboldt's drive served as an inspiration for Goethe. In 1797, Humboldt returned to Jena for three months. During this time, Goethe moved from his residence in Weimar to reside in Jena. Together, Humboldt and Goethe attended university lectures on anatomy and conducted their own experiments. One experiment involved hooking up a frog leg to various metals. They found no effect until the moisture of Humboldt's breath triggered a reaction that caused the frog leg to leap off the table. Humboldt described this as one of his favorite experiments because it was as if he were "breathing life into" the leg.
After his death, Humboldt's friends and colleagues created the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (Stiftung in German) to continue his generous support of young academics. Although the original endowment was lost in the German hyperinflation of the 1920s, and again as a result of World War II, the Foundation has been re-endowed by the German government to award young academics and distinguished senior academics from abroad. It plays an important role in attracting foreign researchers to work in Germany and enabling German researchers to work abroad for a period. The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (German: Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung) is a foundation established by the government of the Federal Republic of Germany and funded by the Federal Foreign Office, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development as well as other national and international partners; it promotes international academic cooperation between excellent scientists and scholars from Germany and from abroad.

Ida Laura Pfeiffer, one of the first female travelers who completed two trips around the world from 1846 to 1855, followed in Humboldt's footsteps. The two explorers met in Berlin in 1851 before Pfeiffer's second tour and again in 1855 when she returned to Europe. Humboldt provided Pfeiffer with an open letter of introduction in which he bade anyone who knew of his name to assist Madame Pfeiffer for her "inextinguishable energy of character which she has everywhere shown, to wheresoever's she has been called or better put, driven by her unconquerable passion to study nature and man."
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation always awards its Humboldt Research Fellowships independently of the subject and the institution the candidate represents. However, the promotion of Humboldt Research Fellowships at BIH by Stiftung Charité considerably improves the prospects for the funding of proposals from BIH, Charité and MDC, provided. The Encyclopædia Britannica, Eleventh Edition, observes, "Thus that scientific conspiracy of nations which is one of the noblest fruits of modern civilization was by his exertions first successfully organized". However, earlier examples of international scientific cooperation exist, notably the 18th-century observations of the transits of Venus. This fellowship allows young researchers to carry out their own research project in cooperation with an academic host of their choice at a research institute in Germany.Humboldt was a significant contributor to cartography, creating maps, particularly of New Spain, that became the template for later mapmakers in Mexico. His careful recording of latitude and longitude led to accurate maps of Mexico, the port of Acapulco, the port of Veracruz, and the Valley of Mexico, and a map showing trade patterns among continents. His maps also included schematic information on geography, converting areas of administrative districts (intendancies) using proportional squares. The U.S. was keen to see his maps and statistics on New Spain, since they had implication for territorial claims following the Louisiana Purchase. Later in life, Humboldt published three volumes (1836–39) examining sources that dealt with the early voyages to the Americas, pursuing his interest in nautical astronomy in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. His research yielded the origin of the name "America", put on a map of the Americas by Martin Waldseemüller.
La escuela europea de pensamiento Lluís Vives y la Universidad de Valencia organizan actividades entorno a Alexander von Humboldt y su paso por nuestro país. 18/12/2019. Felicitación de Navidad 2019 del Presidente. Feliz Navidad y Excelente 2020 os deseo como Presidente en nombre propio y en el de la Junta Directiva El 22 de marzo de 1803 llegó con una fragata española de Guayaquil (Ecuador) a Acapulco, el puerto mexicano del Pacífico. Visitó las cercanías y las describió en su diario, antes de proseguir su viaje el 29 de marzo por Chilpancingo y Taxco hasta la Ciudad de México (a donde llegó el 12 de abril). En un México construido con las ruinas de la capital de los aztecas, Humboldt descifró el calendario azteca o Piedra del Sol que fue desenterrado en la Plaza Mayor, e hizo varias excursiones por los alrededores. Because Humboldt did not mention God in his work Cosmos, and sometimes spoke unfavourably of religious attitudes, it was occasionally speculated that he was a materialist philosopher, or perhaps an atheist. However, unlike irreligious figures such as Robert G. Ingersoll, who went so far as to use Humboldtian science to campaign against religion, Humboldt himself denied imputations of atheism. In a letter to Varnhagen von Ense he emphasized that he believed the world had indeed been created, writing of Cosmos: "...'creation' and the 'created world' are never lost sight of in the book. And did I not, only eight months ago, in the French translation, say, in the plainest terms: 'It is this necessity of things, this occult but permanent connection, this periodical return in the progress, development of formation, phenomena, and events which constitute 'Nature' submissive to a controlling power?'"
Humboldt's brother, Wilhelm, died on 8 April 1835. Alexander lamented that he had lost half of himself with the death of his brother. Upon the accession of the crown prince Frederick William IV in June 1840, Humboldt's favor at court increased. Indeed, the new king's craving for Humboldt's company became at times so importunate as to leave him only a few waking hours to work on his writing. The Bourbon monarchy had already authorized and funded expeditions, with the Botanical Expedition to the Viceroyalty of Peru to Chile and Peru (1777–88), New Granada (1783–1816), New Spain (Mexico) (1787–1803), and the Malaspina Expedition (1789–94). These were lengthy, state-sponsored enterprises to gather information about plants and animals from the Spanish realms, assess economic possibilities, and provide plants and seeds for the Royal Botanical Garden in Madrid (founded 1755). These expeditions took naturalists and artists, who created visual images as well as careful written observations as well as collecting seeds and plants themselves. Crown officials as early as 1779 issued and systematically distributed Instructions concerning the most secure and economic means to transport live plants by land and sea from the most distant countries, with illustrations, including one for the crates to transport seeds and plants. . It was not until he had begun his sixtieth year that he resumed his early role of traveler in the interests of science. Tras haber gastado toda su fortuna, murió en 1859 en Berlin, sin dejar descendientes. Sus restos fueron sepultados en el panteón de Tegel.

A lo largo de la historia son muy numerosos los reconocimientos que ha recibido la figura de Humboldt: especies biológicas, elementos geográficos, parques y reservas naturales, localidades, calles, buques, cuerpos espaciales, universidades, institutos, colegios, etc. Asimismo su figura ha sido reproducida en sellos y billetes. On 24 November 1800, the two friends set sail for Cuba, landing on 19 December, where they met fellow botanist and plant collector John Fraser. Fraser and his son had been shipwrecked off the Cuban coast, and did not have a license to be in the Spanish Indies. Humboldt, who was already in Cuba, interceded with crown officials in Havana, as well as giving them money and clothing. Fraser obtained permission to remain in Cuba and explore. Humboldt entrusted Fraser with taking two cases of Humboldt and Bonpland's botanical specimens to England when he returned, for eventual conveyance to the German botanist Willdenow in Berlin. Humboldt and Bonpland stayed in Cuba until 5 March 1801, when they left for the mainland of northern South America again, arriving there on 30 March. In the Napoleonic wars, Prussia had capitulated to France, signing the Treaty of Tilsit. The Prussian royal family returned to Berlin, but sought better terms of the treaty and Friedrich Wilhelm III commissioned his younger brother Prince Wilhelm with this. Friedrich Wilhelm III asked Alexander to be part of the mission, charged with introducing the prince to Paris society. This turn of events for Humboldt could not have been better, since he desired to live in Paris rather than Berlin.
Alexander von Humboldt is also a German ship named after the scientist, originally built in 1906 by the German shipyard AG Weser at Bremen as Reserve Sonderburg. She was operated throughout the North and Baltic Seas until being retired in 1986. Subsequently, she was converted into a three-masted barque by the German shipyard Motorwerke Bremerhaven, and was re-launched in 1988 as Alexander von Humboldt. El 19 de junio, Humboldt tuvo que pedirle a James Madison que le recordara a Gallatin la devolución de algunos de sus materiales: After six weeks, Humboldt set sail for Europe from the mouth of the Delaware and landed at Bordeaux on 3 August 1804.
Alexander von Humboldt A newly established foundation, the Deutsche Stiftung Sail Training or DSST [German Sail Training Foundation] bought the vessel and transformed her into a tall ship based on her sailing ship hull. On 30 May 1988 she was christened Alexander von Humboldt after the celebrated German explorer Alexander von Humboldt. A newly established foundation, the Deutsche Stiftung Sail Training or DSST (German Sail Training Foundation), bought the vessel and transformed it into a tall ship according to the plans of Polish naval architect Zygmunt Choreń.On 30 May 1988 she was christened Alexander von Humboldt after the celebrated German explorer.In a historical reference to the sailing ships. It has been argued that "although Humboldt emphasizes the basis of morality in the nature of man, he does acknowledge that a belief in God is linked directly to acts of virtue" and therefore "the dignity of man lies at the centre of Humboldt's religious thought".
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation grants up to 50 German Chancellor Fellowships every year to prospective leaders from Brazil, China, India, Russia and the USA - irrespective of their field. Humboldt would later reveal to Darwin in the 1840s that he had been a fan of Darwin's grandfather's poetry. Erasmus Darwin had published the poem The Loves of the Plants in the early 1800s. Humboldt praised the poem for combining nature and imagination, a theme that permeated Humboldt's own work.

[...] With the financial resources to finance his scientific travels, he sought a ship on a major expedition. Meantime, he went to Paris, where his brother Wilhelm was now living. Paris was a great center of scientific learning and his brother and sister-in-law Caroline were well connected in those circles. Louis-Antoine de Bougainville urged Humboldt to accompany him on a major expedition, likely to last five years, but the French revolutionary Directoire placed Nicolas Baudin at the head of it rather than the aging scientific traveler. On the postponement of Captain Baudin's proposed voyage of circumnavigation due to continuing warfare in Europe, which Humboldt had been officially invited to accompany, Humboldt was deeply disappointed. He had already selected scientific instruments for his voyage. He did, however, have a stroke of luck with meeting Aimé Bonpland, the botanist and physician for the voyage. Discouraged, the two left Paris for Marseilles, where they hoped to join Napoleon Bonaparte in Egypt, but North Africans were in revolt against the French invasion in Egypt and French authorities refused permission to travel. Humboldt and Bonpland eventually found their way to Madrid, where their luck changed spectacularly.
The Jan De Nul Group operates a hopper dredger built in 1998 also named Alexander von Humboldt. Finalmente, Humboldt, Bonpland y Montúfar regresaron a Europa desde Filadelfia, y llegaron el 30 de junio de 1804 a Francia. En París, conoció a Simón Bolívar, quien solía decir que Humboldt era «el descubridor científico del Nuevo Mundo, cuyo estudio ha dado a América algo mejor que todos los conquistadores juntos». Humboldt conoció en París, en 1818, al joven científico peruano estudiante en la École Royale de Mines de París Mariano Eduardo de Rivero y Ustáriz, de quien fue años después gran amigo y mentor, como fue del ecuatoriano Montúfar, quien volvió al Ecuador a luchar por la independencia de su patria.[cita requerida]
Humboldt's passion for travel was of long standing. Humboldt's talents were devoted to the purpose of preparing himself as a scientific explorer. With this emphasis, he studied commerce and foreign languages at Hamburg, geology at Freiberg School of Mines in 1791 under A.G. Werner, leader of the Neptunist school of geology; from anatomy at Jena under J.C. Loder; and astronomy and the use of scientific instruments under F.X. von Zach and J.G. Köhler. At Freiberg, he met a number of men who were to prove important to him in his later career, including Spaniard Manuel del Rio, who became director of the School of Mines the crown established in Mexico; Christian Leopold von Buch, who became a regional geologist; and, most importantly, Karl Freiesleben, who became Humboldt's tutor and close friend. During this period, his brother Wilhelm married, but Alexander did not attend the nuptials. Actualmente, se está revisando la valoración (en ocasiones, extrema) acrítica de la obra humboldtiana, así como su importante deuda intelectual con los universalistas españoles de la época (Lorenzo Hervás, José Celestino Mutis, Francisco Javier Clavijero, Juan Andrés y otros).

Nakon Humboldtove smrti njegovi prijatelji i kolege osnovali su Zakladu Alexander von Humboldt (Stiftung na njemačkom) kako bi nastavili von Humboldtovu velikodušnu potporu mladi His services to geology were based on his attentive study of the volcanoes of the Andes and Mexico, which he observed and sketched, climbed, and measured with a variety of instruments. By climbing Chimborazo, he established an altitude record which became the basis for measurement of other volcanoes in the Andes and the Himalayas. As with other aspects of his investigations, he developed methods to show his synthesized results visually, using the graphic method of geologic-cross sections. He showed that volcanoes fell naturally into linear groups, presumably corresponding with vast subterranean fissures; and by his demonstration of the igneous origin of rocks previously held to be of aqueous formation, he contributed largely to the elimination of erroneous views, such as Neptunism.
El 20 de enero de 1804 sale del centro cultural iberoamericano y va a Veracruz. Durante este viaje mide el Popocatépetl, con aproximadamente 4560 metros sobre el nivel del mar; el Iztaccíhuatl y escala el Cofre de Perote. La medición de los volcanes es una evidente prioridad de su viaje, en particular el Pico de Orizaba, que Humboldt midió solo de lejos; esto tiene una importancia para los navegantes que se acercaban a la costa mexicana. Durante su estancia en la intendencia de Puebla, visitó la pirámide de Cholula, calculando su altura en 54 metros de elevación perpendicular y 349 metros de anchura horizontal en su base; sus lados orientados con exactitud a los meridianos y paralelos; desde su cima realizó gran número de observaciones astronómicas. At Gottingen, he met Georg Forster, a naturalist who had been with Captain James Cook on his second voyage. Humboldt traveled with Forster in Europe. The two traveled to England, Humboldt's first sea voyage, the Netherlands, and France. In England, he met Sir Joseph Banks, president of the Royal Society, who had traveled with Captain Cook; Banks showed Humboldt his huge herbarium, with specimens of the South Sea tropics. The scientific friendship between Banks and Humboldt lasted until Banks's death in 1820, and the two shared botanical specimens for study. Banks also mobilized his scientific contacts in later years to aid Humboldt's work.

Knowing that the current U.S. president, Thomas Jefferson, was himself a scientist, Humboldt wrote to him saying that he would be in the United States. Jefferson warmly replied, inviting him to visit the White House in the nation's new capital. In his letter Humboldt had gained Jefferson's interest by mentioning that he had discovered mammoth teeth near the Equator. Jefferson had previously written that he believed mammoths had never lived so far south. Humboldt had also hinted at his knowledge of New Spain. Alexander von Humboldt II is a German sailing ship built as a replacement for the ship Alexander von Humboldt, which had been launched in 1906 and used for sail training since 1988. Constructed by Brenn- und Verformtechnik (BVT) in Bremen, the new ship was launched in 2011 Ya instalados, ambos viajeros (Humboldt y Bonpland) se dedican a explorar los alrededores de la ciudad, y el 2 de enero de 1800 ascienden a la Silla de Caracas que, junto al Pico Naiguatá y el Cerro el Ávila, conforman la cadena montañosa que los aborígenes llamaban Guaraira Repano. Los acompañó Andrés Bello, quien pronto sería reconocido como El Patriarca de las Letras Americanas. Luego parten hacia los valles del Tuy y Aragua, visitan Antímano, La Victoria, Turmero, Maracay, Valencia, Guacara, Las Trincheras y Puerto Cabello. Desde allí, se dirigen a los llanos centrales pasando por Calabozo y San Fernando de Atabapo. Siguen hacia la Guayana venezolana y recorren los pueblos de misión hasta llegar a San Carlos de Río Negro. Exploran el río Orinoco, sus afluentes y en particular el brazo Casiquiare, un peculiar afluente que comunica las cuencas del Orinoco y el Amazonas. Visitan Angostura (actual Ciudad Bolívar) y desde allí se dirigen por El Pao a Barcelona y luego a Cumaná, terminando así el recorrido por el territorio de Venezuela.[cita requerida] Friedrich Wilhelm Heinrich Alexander von Humboldt ( listen (help · info); 14 September 1769 - 6 May 1859) was a Prussian geographer, naturalist, explorer, and influential proponent of romantic philosophy.

Alexander von Humboldt und Friedrich Argelander: Briefwechsel. (Beiträge zur Alexander-von-Humboldt-Forschung, 46). de Gruyter, Berlin 2019, ISBN 978-3-11-064470-8. Edition humboldt digital. Petra Werner unter Mitarbeit von Ingo Schwarz und Tobias Kraft (Hrsg.):. Humboldt's researches into the vegetation of the mines of Freiberg led to the publication in Latin (1793) of his Florae Fribergensis, accedunt Aphorismi ex Doctrina, Physiologiae Chemicae Plantarum, which was a compendium of his botanical researches. That publication brought him to the attention of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who had met Humboldt at the family home when Alexander was a boy, but Goethe was now interested in meeting the young scientist to discuss metamorphism of plants. An introduction was arranged by Humboldt's brother, who lived in the university town of Jena, not far from Goethe. Goethe had developed his own extensive theories on comparative anatomy. Working before Darwin, he believed that animals had an internal force, an urform, that gave them a basic shape and then they were further adapted to their environment by an external force. Humboldt urged him to publish his theories. Together, the two discussed and expanded these ideas. Goethe and Humboldt soon became close friends. Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Article. The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation promotes academic cooperation between excellent scientists and scholars from abroad and from Germany. To this end, it grants more than 700 research fellowships and research awards annually In Britain, Heinrich Berghaus planned to publish together with Alexander Keith Johnston a "Physical Atlas". But later Johnston published it alone under the title "The Physical Atlas of Natural Phenomena". In Britain its connection to the Cosmos seems not have been recognized. Many of the original works have been digitally scanned by the Biodiversity Library. There have been new editions of print works, including his Views of the Cordilleras and Monuments of the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas (2014), which includes reproductions of all the color and black and white plates. In the original edition, the publication was in a large format and quite expensive. There is a 2009 translation of his Geography of Plants and a 2014 English edition of Views of Nature.
