A noted German theologian, philosopher, and historian; born at Kleinbottmar in Wurtemberg, 1814. He studied at Tubingen and Berlin; and despite the very free tendencies of his thought, strongly influenced by that of Strauss, he was professor of theology at Bern, and later professor of philosophy at Heidelberg and at Berlin. Among his chief works are: "Platonic Studies" (1839); "The Philosophy of the Greeks" (1844-52); "The Story of the Apostles, Critically Investigated" (1854); "David Friedrich Strauss Depicted in his Life and Writings" (1874); "Frederick the Great as a Philosopher" (1886); etc.
