These customs sporadically faded rather then momentously as with the American civil war. Dave is correct. Some of you are obviously confused. Meyer was and is a typical Jewish name, though not as a surname, but rather as a first name.

As in the character in the Great Gatsby, called Meyer Wolfsheim. As a last name it is as likely to be gentile as it is Jewish. Just as Rosenberg is probably considered to be Jewish, yet one of the highest ranking nazis was Alfred Rosenberg. Sorry to have discovered this exchange so late.
Let me add a smile if in this cas it is possible. And the Meyer-Goering name gave an underground german joke. Meier is an very conman German name. Though there are some remote Jewish connections. I would also like to point out that people of Jewish faith have been more often than not social outcasts in the European past. Regarding the etymology of German surnames take a look at the Wikipedia. What the hell did the quote MEAN?
Is it a German idiom? Your email address will not be published. Dave Ratner says:. A German says:. New interpretations of Bronn's work and his influence on Ernst Haeckel and evolutionary thought in Germany are presented in the new book by Sander Gliboff, H.

Haeckel, who was the most influential don of German zoology for several decades, probably read Darwin's Origin in German during his PhD work in Jena, since his command of English was not particularly good. The main reason why all of this is of greater, even political, interest beyond issues in the history of science, is that Ernst Haeckel is widely seen—although this is disputed among historians of science—to be in an unholy intellectual line from Darwin to social Darwinism and eugenics in the early twentieth century, eventually leading to fascism in Nazi Germany.

Creationist and intelligent-design advocates worldwide tirelessly perpetuate this purported but largely unsubstantiated connection between Darwin, Haeckel, and Hitler . Furthermore, they do not do justice to Haeckel's understanding of Darwinian evolution by natural selection with all its unpredictability, but, more importantly, seem to aim to further undermine the acceptance of evolution by an often still surprisingly skeptical lay audience. Haeckel was, by far, the most successful popularizer of science for more than a generation in Germany  , .
His books were printed in large numbers, translated into several languages, and strongly influenced scientists and layman alike  , . Haeckel idealized Darwin. Nonetheless, he was instrumental in propagating the principle of evolution by natural selection to the then very influential community of German biologists that had long adhered to lamarckian ideas. Bronn died in , and later editions of Darwin's seminal book were translated into German by Julius Victor Carus. A son of Friedrich Emil Suchsland, a publisher of Darwin's translations, asked Darwin for permission for a new translation of later editions of the Origin , claiming that his theory had been widely misunderstood in Germany because of shortcomings in the early translation by Bronn.
This interpretation of Bronn's skewed understanding of Darwin, and its effects on Haeckel's own misunderstanding, continued in the history of science until recently  , . Gliboff's new book  clarifies that, although Bronn never completely accepted Darwin's idea of species transformation, he did immediately recognize that Darwin's Origin was a huge advance toward a more comprehensive science of life, which Bronn himself had long sought to establish.
Gliboff's book is a very readable, concise, and an important contribution that will help to rectify some entrenched misunderstandings about the history of evolutionary thinking in Germany. It needs to be said, however, that Gliboff almost summarily ignores a large body of work from German scholars on these aspects of the history of evolutionary biology.

It was Thomas Junker and others  ,  who clarified the historical role of Bronn's translation of Darwin on the acceptance and perception of Darwinian evolution in German. The omission of the insights of these scholars detracts from the impact that this book should have. Gliboff makes an important contribution by pointing out that Bronn's liberal translation of Darwin altered the precise meanings of Victorian English words to fit a contemporaneous German sensibility.
Much of this can be attributed to Bronn's interpretations of Darwin.
Bronn had been thinking along lines perhaps parallel to Darwin's, aiming to modify Darwin where he thought he knew better than Darwin himself. However, their work—just like the insights of the following generations of evolutionary biologists—extended Darwin's theory beyond that which was known to Darwin himself and led to a healthy discourse among different interpretations. One should not forget that Darwin's thoughts were only the beginning of modern evolutionary biology.

A huge amount of research in evolutionary biology in the years since the publication of Origin added, extended, and modified Darwin's initial thinking—as should be expected in any vibrant scientific discipline—but did not contradict the core tenets of Darwin.
