Junghuhn projected a Javanese nature that was not only knowable but easy to get along with. While Junghuhn was living in the Netherlands in the early 1850s, he took the next step and elaborated on how Europeans should interact with Java’s landscape. No longer merely descriptive of Java’s nature, he is prescriptive, making suggestions about European naturalists’ roles as leaders of Javanese colonial society. Junghuhn’s Licht- en schaduwbeelden van de binnenlanden van Java (Light and Shadow Images from the Interior of Java), first published in 1854, is a chronicle of the adventures and conversations of two men—“Day” and “Night”—on a trip through the mountainous regions of Java.

The administration had an unsure Apostles of Enlightenment , 17 mandate now that it had been stripped of its economic duties. 14 In the colony the administration was to maintain political and economic stability, but no one, in either The Hague or Buitenzorg, knew yet what that specifically meant.

And its framework for understanding nature was imported from outside. Teysmann’s ambition of establishing the botanical gardens as a regular administrative budget item guaranteed its survival but also limited its horizon.
