For most mathematicians and many mathematical physicists the name Erich K hler (1906 - 2000) is strongly tied to important geometric notions such as K hler metrics, K hler manifolds and K hler groups.

They all go back to a paper of 14 pages written in 1932. This, however, is just a small part of K hlers many outstanding achievements which cover an unusually wide area: His principal interest was in finding the unity in the variety of mathematical themes and establishing thus mathematics as a universal language. In this volume K hlers mathematical papers are collected following a Tribute to Herrn Erich K hler by S. S. Chern, an overview of K hlers life data by A. Bohm and R. Berndt, and a Survey of his Mathematical Work by the editors. There are also comments and reports on the developments of the main topics of K hlers work.

As K hlers interest went beyond the realm of mathematics and mathematical physics, any picture of his work would be incomplete without touching his work reaching into other regions. So a short appendix reproduces three of his articles concerning his vision of mathematics as a universal Theme together with an essay by K. Maurin giving an Approach to the philosophy of Erich K hler.
