Rafael Lucas Rodríguez Caballero: botanist, artist and humanist


"Read the biography of Dr. Rafael Lucas Caballero is a journey through the life and works of an extraordinary person Ramonense globalist, biologist, artist and humanist, prodigious draftsman who devoted himself to science, a first-class researcher who emphasized the construction of institutions, splendid writer who focused on verbal instruction.In his career, he integrated biology and basic research into the general culture, as well as considerations of progress and safety.
While telling the story of this formidable man, the work also makes reference to important institutions for which he left his mark, both in Costa Rica and in the United States: the Organization for Tropical Studies, the International House of the University of California , Berkeley, the Lankester Garden and the School of Biology of the University of Costa Rica.
Each one of the pages tries to rescue its philosophy of integrating science, art, culture and progress. After the death of Rafael Lucas, his doctoral professor once remarked that he had torn himself between a career as a biologist and a career as an artist. But the truth is that he never thought that he should choose between them.
The author is the son of Rafael Lucas. Writing the book was for him a work of family history and a personal trajectory, since he was a child when his father died. Throughout the process, he learned many lessons, which have general value inside and outside of Costa Rica. "
