About this book series

The subseries of SpringerBriefs on Pioneers in Science and Practice presents additional texts by eminent conceptual thinkers, scholars, policymakers, diplomats and others who—as pioneers in a specific field of research or an area of policy and debate—have had an innovative, long-lasting regional or global impact on issues crucial for humankind in the twenty-first century. It presents the work of distinguished scholars in the natural or social sciences and in the humanities—from many disciplines and from all parts of the world—who have inspired scientific and policy debates and who with their conceptual and scholarly work have introduced new areas or topics of scientific analysis, research and teaching.
