Albert Schweitzer

A Great Humanist

Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) was a musician, philosopher, theologian and later a doctor in Africa. One of the last universal scientists, he was above all a man of action and a pioneer of humanitarian aid. Founder of the “Reverence for Life”, he saw at the beginning of the 20th century that there would be no salvation for civilization outside of this ethic. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952.
