About the Author

Konrad Lorenz was appointed Professor of Psychology in Königsberg in 1940. After the war, he set up and directed the Max Planck Institutes for Marine Biology and Behavioral Physiology. In 1973 he won the Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine and that year founded the Konrad Lorenz Institute. Lorenz is popularly known for his development, with Oscar Heinroth, of the concept of imprinting, as well as for the controversial views stated in his book, On Aggression. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


"The route to an understanding of humans leads just as surely through an understanding of animals as the evolutionary pathway of humans has led through animal precursors." Konrad Lorenz, "The Russian Manuscript"
