Riassunto: An Autobiography
L'autore: If success is not a destination but a journey, then Margaret Gruter's voyage is a tale worth telling. This biography chronicles a life that in many ways transcends labels or categories. At the age of 80, Margaret Gruter reflects on her time as a young girl growing up in Germany after WWI, and her days as an outspoken, politically unreliable student under Hitler-- hoping the nations whose pilots were coming to bomb them would win the war.
At the age of twenty, she married the man she loved, a young doctor called off to the army four days after the wedding, not to return until 1945. With her husband away, she raised a child while working towards her law degree (Dr. jur.) at the University of Heidelberg. After working with the American Occupation Forces during the restructuring of Germany, Margaret Gruter sailed from Germany with her husband and child to settle in America.
Adjusting from a bustling European university city to a village in Ohio proved daunting. Bored with life as a doctor's wife in rural Ohio, she started several entrepreneurial ventures; eventually developing the biggest privately owned facility for the developmentally disabled east of the Mississippi.
In 1969, another move brought her and her husband to Northern California. Quenching her 17-year thirst for intellectual nourishment, Margaret Gruter returned to studying law for an advanced degree (J.S.M.) at Stanford University at the age of fifty. An acute desire for justice, heightened by the climate of death and terror under Hitler, inspired her to focus her studies on bridging the gap between law and evolutionary biology.
This search resulted in the creation of the Gruter Institute for Law and Behavioral Research in 1980. The Institute investigates the biological origins of human behavior and applies these findings to the law. Now recognized by leading scholars and scientists as the founder of the law and evolutionary biology movement, Margaret Gruter reflects upon the interdisciplinary teamwork she organized, including 50 conferences, teaching seminars, and publications addressing issues such as dispute resolution, neuroscience and the law, and the biological roots of justice.
