This book (written in German) describes the life and mathematical achievements of Hermann Günther Grassmann (). In the first chapter, the author presents Grassmann's life from his childhood up to his death, a life played out on the background political, social and cultural situation in Germany during the first half of the 19th century.

Hermann Günter Grassmann was born on 15 April in Stettin, Prussia (now Szczecin, Poland). Hermann Grassmann is chiefly remembered for his development of a general calculus for vectors. Hermann Günter Grassmann died on 26 September in Stettin, Germany (now Szczecin, Poland).

Grassmann’s most gifted son, Hermann, wrote three textbooks on analytic geometry based on the approach of the Ausdehnungslehre: and in he applied the latter to the theory of gyroscopic motion.

The other most important German advocates of the book were R. Mehmke and his student A. Lotas. Hermann Günther Grassmann was a gifted German thinker whose work spanned the fields of mathematics and linguistics, theology, and botany.
