Description
Here Am I -- Where Are You?: The Behavior of the Greylag Goose was thought to be Konrad Lorenz's last book. However, in 1991 the "Russian Manuscript" was discovered in an attic, and its subsequent publication in German has become a scientific sensation. Written under the most extreme conditions in Soviet prison camps, the "Russian Manuscript" was the first outline of a large-scale work on behavioral science. This translation contains a synopsis of all the ideas that made Lorenz famous as the founder of ethology, the study of comparative animal behavior.

Konrad Lorenz was appointed Professor of Psychology in Konigsberg 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.
