Carl Ritter was a famous German geographer, who, along with Alexander von Humboldt, founded the modern geographical science. Empowered by his strength in subjects like history, theology and natural sciences, and inspired by Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi and Johann Gottfried von Herder, he became a Geography Professor at the University of Berlin in 1820. For him, Geography was an experimental science, thus he would engage in frequent fieldworks, observations and researches. He looked up to Humboldt and his writings for inspiration and guidance. However, unlike him, Ritter completely believed in God and taught his students how God’s plan was manifested in the harmony of man and nature. He presented a geographical interpretation of history and even long after his death his ideas continued to influence geographical researches in Germany. His great work, ‘Die Erdkunde im Verhältniss zur Natur und zur Geschichte des Menschen’ was intended as a world geographical study but was left incomplete at the time of his death. The first volume, published as early as in 1817, was on Africa and earned him his coveted position at the University of Berlin. Later in his life, he wrote more volumes, mainly on Asia. Although incomplete, the work consisted of over 20,000 pages in 19 volumes.
