Alexander Carl Heinrich BraunDied 29 Mar 1877 at age 71 (born 10 May 1805).German botanist who was the most highly regarded botanist of the “nature philosophy”school, a doctrine which attempted to explain natural phenomena in terms of the speculative theories that dominated early 19th-century German science. Several species of cryptogams he discovered bear his name, such as Chara braunii. With Karl Schimper, he established the theory of spiral phyllotaxy.

He opposed Darwinian selection, and remained a believer of “nature philosophy”when the doctrine was falling out of favour.

The next morning, she cooks a gourmet meal with all the trimmings. The guy is amazed! Everything has been incredible!

"No," she replies...
