Czech Republic


T.G. Masaryk, "Russia and Europe I," a valuable discussion of Russia by the philosophical president of the Czech Republic!

Russian Dostoevsky by Masaryk, who was born to a serf father and a cook mother, from whom he struggled to become a philosophy professor and even the first president of the Czech Republic.

To begin with, he is a top-notch philosopher. Masaryk was also a politician with experience in world affairs, politics, and economics. He was also a great personality who was respected not only by the Czech people but also by people all over the world.

The Russian history and Dostoevsky theory told by such a grown-up was extremely stimulating.

Mendel is famous for his experiments on pea hybridization. Although I too had such an image of "Mendel's laws," I knew almost nothing about what era Mendel lived in and what kind of life he led.

It was very interesting to learn about Mendel's life and the historical background of the time through this biography. This is an interesting biography.
