In spite of the open and virulent anti-Semitism of the 1870s and 1880s, German Jewry did little to organize a systematic defense (Schorsch, 1972).

These heated partisans may continue to attack and calumniate 25 26 FORGOTTEN IDEAS, NEGLECTED PIONEERS my person as they will; they will not hurt the sacred cause of truth in which I labor (Haeckel, 1904, pp. viii-ix). Haeckel's righteous reference to the "sacred cause of truth" is particularly ironic since, as Charles Singer puts it, "He habitually perverted scientific truth to make certain of his doctrines more easily assimilable (1959, p.
