You are not born a researcher. But which paths (and detours) actually lead to science? Here, 30 researchers from different disciplines talk about their first encounters and formative experiences in science, about coincidences and decisions, sparks of insight and lasting interest in research. About how an outsider in kindergarten can become a professor of computer science. Why, as the daughter of an illiterate woman, one teaches Islamic theology of all things. Or how a legal scholar simply wants to understand why rules are so important for our coexistence. 30 exciting life stories of humanities, social, natural and engineering scientists that inspire and awaken interest in science.
Miriam Holzapfel, a cultural scientist, independent editor, and author, embarked on a journey through various scientific fields, spoke with researchers, and created their profiles. The illustrations are by Alexandra Rusitschka, Marion Blomeyer, Eva Hillreiner, Miriam Bröckel, and Beppo Albrecht.
