Abstract :

There is much to be said about the Nobel Prizes. Numerous pages are written each year to promote, describe, analyze and criticize the prizes, their initiator and their evolution since 1901. The purpose of this study is to bring back to light from the dust of the archives information about those Romanians who were ahead of their times through their outstanding thinking and understanding of the world. Little has been written about those nominated, since it has been considered more relevant to focus on the winners. There were plentiful creative minds who only needed an opportunity to be known to the world. Famous Romanian names show up from the archives and the nomination database provided by the Nobel Institution and enable us to get a broad perspective of the nominators and the nominees. Ironically, as in the case of the Nobel Peace Prize, most of those who genuinely had a chance to win were never nominated.



Articolul de fa?a vine sa continue prezentarea despre Premiile Nobel pentru Pace publicata în numarul anterior al acestei reviste. Daca pâna astazi nu exista nici un laureat român al Premiului pentru Pace, în domeniul medicinei oi literaturii românii au fost mai norocooi. Cercetarile medicale efectuate de min?i româneoti în laboratoare performante puse la dispozi?ie de universita?i straine au condus la ob?inerea mult râvnitului Premiu Nobel. Despre românii care s-au adaugat astfel elitei mondiale a creierelor s-a scris destul de mult. Pu?ine informa?ii exista însa despre cei nominaliza?i pentru aceste prestigioase Premii, dar care n-au avut oansa de a fi selecta?i. Meritele lor, aoa cum au fost ele scoase în eviden?a de scrisorile de nominalizare, s-au adaugat voluminoaselor dosare existente în arhivele Institutului Nobel, îngrooând rândurile celor care au aspirat cândva la recunoaotere otiin?ifica sau literara. Nume extrem de cunoscute românilor se prezinta acum dintr-o noua perspectiva, aceea de nominalizat pentru unul dintre cele mai prestigioase premii din lume.


Key words : Romanians; Nobel Prizes; nominations; Literature; Science.
