Hans Christian Ørsted

Ritter's reaction to the fiasco in Paris was calm. He married and encouraged Ørsted to make girlfriends. Two of Ørsted's fellow-countrymen reported not only the defeat he suffered in the National Institute, but also the ridicule he was subjected to by the Irish chemist Chenevix for taking Winterl's theory seriously. During his long absence abroad Ørsted had seemingly lost his friend Oehlenschläger to Steffens, whose lectures on Naturphilosophie had furthermore seduced numerous people in Copenhagen. Ørsted resumes close contact with his father, whose pharmacy had been fraudulently mortgaged by Jacob, one of Hans Christian's three younger brothers. Ørsted decides to give lectures on physics and chemistry as free-lancer and is endowed with a significant collection of instruments.

Keywords:   Ritter, Chenevix, Steffens, Oehlenschläger, Ørsted's family relations, acquires scientific instruments
