Baron Dr. Carl (Karl) Ludwig von Reichenbach (full name: Karl Ludwig Freiherr von Reichenbach) (There was an error working with the wiki: Code[2], There was an error working with the wiki: Code[3] of all times. He is best known for his discoveries of several chemical products of economical importance, extracted from There was an error working with the wiki: Code[16], such as There was an error working with the wiki: Code[17], waxy There was an error working with the wiki: Code[18], There was an error working with the wiki: Code[19] (the first synthetic There was an error working with the wiki: Code[20]) and There was an error working with the wiki: Code[21] (an There was an error working with the wiki: Code[22]). He also dedicated himself in his last years to research an unproved field of energy combining Electricity, Magnetism and Heat, emanating from all living things, which he called the There was an error working with the wiki: Code[23].

Life

Reichenbach was educated at the There was an error working with the wiki: Code[4] authorities, on suspicion that its real objectives were political. Reichenbach was arrested and imprisoned for some months.

He next directed his attention to the applications of science to the There was an error working with the wiki: Code[5] arts, visited most of the great There was an error working with the wiki: Code[6] and There was an error working with the wiki: Code[7] of France and Germany, and established the first modern metallurgical company, with There was an error working with the wiki: Code[24]s of his own at There was an error working with the wiki: Code[25] and There was an error working with the wiki: Code[26], in the There was an error working with the wiki: Code[27] region of Southern Germany, and later There was an error working with the wiki: Code[28]. In There was an error working with the wiki: Code[29], in connection with There was an error working with the wiki: Code[30], he commenced a number of manufacturing operations in There was an error working with the wiki: Code[31], There was an error working with the wiki: Code[32], from which he soon secured an ample fortune at about this time the King of Württemberg conferred on him the title of baron.

Scientific contributions

Reichenbach was particularly distinguished for his original scientific investigations in many areas. The first There was an error working with the wiki: Code[8] monograph which appeared in There was an error working with the wiki: Code[33] was his Geologische Mitteilungen aus Mähren (There was an error working with the wiki: Code[34], There was an error working with the wiki: Code[35]).

His position as the head of the large There was an error working with the wiki: Code[9], There was an error working with the wiki: Code[10], such as There was an error working with the wiki: Code[11] compounds would be established.

Baron Von Reichenbach usually lived in a There was an error working with the wiki: Code[36] at There was an error working with the wiki: Code[37], which was provided with an extensive scientific Library and several scientific collections, among which one of the finest of the world on There was an error working with the wiki: Code[38]s as well as Sieber's great There was an error working with the wiki: Code[39].

The Odic force

Reichenbach afterward entered upon an investigation of the manner in which the human There was an error working with the wiki: Code[12]. To this There was an error working with the wiki: Code[13] theory of him he gave the name of There was an error working with the wiki: Code[40] (inspired by the There was an error working with the wiki: Code[41], the There was an error working with the wiki: Code[42] of There was an error working with the wiki: Code[43]), a kind of "life principle" which he believed permeates and binds together all living things. Although he gave no attention to There was an error working with the wiki: Code[44] at the time, in vogue with There was an error working with the wiki: Code[45] and other There was an error working with the wiki: Code[46] theories, the subject was inevitably encountered by him in his researches. This, however, he pursued independently of all experiments and theories that had been made so far.

His ruminations and pseudoscientific works on Od were published in several books.

The Odic theory never acquired currency among mainstream scientists, so instead it lies today among There was an error working with the wiki: Code[14] concepts such as There was an error working with the wiki: Code[15] and There was an error working with the wiki: Code[47] of the Far East. As of lately the Odic theory has become popular again amongst There was an error working with the wiki: Code[48] groups.
